At the current time (pre-release), the plug-in sample does not have an example to use cloud upload. However, as the plug-in API is basically the Android API, it is fairly straightforward to use existing Android code to upload things to the cloud.
During the pre-release phase, there is only one example plug-in code with minimal functionality. Hopefully, we’ll be able to get a small library of examples for the launch of the partner program so developers can quickly modify the examples and get up to speed.
The current sample focuses only the camera functionality, which includes image, video, and live streaming. There is greater control of the stitching.
@jcasman is helping Ricoh to organize the early access plug-in program. You may want to contact him about early access if you’re interested.
As part of the application for early-access, please send him a DM with this info:
- tangible idea
- engineering resource
- motivation to finish the app
The main issue right now is that the documentation and examples for the plug-in are minimal. So, it’ll be tougher to develop now than if you wait for the program to be open to general developers. If you want to get an edge getting to market faster, going through the additional hurdles of early access might be worth it for you.
There’s a discussion here about using the camera in client-mode. You may be able to grab the camera service with NSD, assuming the plug-in connects to WiFi in client mode (which might be tricky).
