I use the native camera wrapper in my Android application which works really well, thank you for this! Unfortunately, whenever a new android version comes out I have to update the <opencv>/libs/armeabi-v7a/ folder and add the new version (f.e. libnative_camera_r4.1.1), update the makefile and then update my app. Now, I have a phone with Android 4.2.2. which cannot open any of the existing camera libraries ("Cannot dlopen camera wrapper library"). So I went and searched for libnative_camera_r4.2.2 but I did not find it.

So I have two questions:

1) Is my current workflow (updating the app whenever a new android version comes out) really necessary or is there a way to ensure backward compatibility?

2) Is libnative_camera_r4.2.2 already available and if not, when will it be and how can I help?

Having the same issue, the only lead I have is that you need to compile the openCV code using the android version you want to use, but I haven't tried that, I'm about to check if the latest openCV version hast a newer libnative_camera file
