After assigning an overlay in the showCamera function the allowEditing setting seems to be disregarded. The overlay shows, but no edit bar shows up after the video is taken.
Titanium.Media.showCamera ( overlay: my_camera_overlay, allowEditing: true, mediaTypes: Titanium.Media.MEDIA_TYPE_VIDEO );
seems to still be broken… i've got a helpdesk ticket open with this, but haven't gotten a response there yet, either.
Have you tried setting your UiView "my_camera_overlay" property "touchEnabled" to false?
This worked for me before, but with the latest nightly build of 1_7_x and master it does not seem to work.
having the same problem… touchEnabled does not work for me (1.7.5) - is there any news about that?
Unfortunately Nils no news on this. I could not update my iPhone App because of this problem since iOS 5 was released. I have been looking at alternatives to Appcelerator because of issues like these. It is not worth my investment anymore.
