I'm wondering if anyone found the solution to this problem? I am now experiencing the same problem. My app works fine on my droid DNA, but when testing it with a Sony Tablet S, I get the same problem of the camera reporting (0,0) size. In response to the previous questions:
1) How repeatable is this?
Very. The qcar app will run fine the first time when launched from Eclipse. Then on the second run, the app hangs with this error:
03-30 15:55:03.500: E/AR(12503): VideoBackgroundConfig with screen size of zero received, skipping config step
If I restart the tablet, i can run the app once more from Eclipse and then i get the error again on the second run.
2) Does it occur when launching from Eclipse? If so, are you hooking up the debugger?
Yes, but I'm not running the debugger right now.
3) Does it occur when resuming from the main application list or from the recent app list?
No, only seems to happen when installing & running a fresh copy from eclipse.
4) Does your app load a lot of content at startup?
I don't think so. It's using 1 multitarget and 3 textures and creates vertices & normals on the fly.
5) Can you reproduce the issue with the sample applications?
Yes. Also note that once i get this error, i can't even load the basic android camera app. it gives me the error "Cannot start Camera. Restart this device."
Thanks for your help!
