Native Camera's FILE_URI URL on Videos Works But Not on Images


#1

Hi,

I am using native camera and I have this in my code:

sourceType: this.camera.PictureSourceType.PHOTOLIBRARY,
destinationType: this.camera.DestinationType.FILE_URI

However, I get:

content://com.android.providers.media.documents/document/image%3A213049

It wont work inside img src="{{photoUrl}}". I would like to upload the file I selected from the photolibrary but the above is what I get. How can I show a preview and upload the file itself. It works for me with videos but not with images. How can I achieve this? I have searched on forums and tried different solutions based on the answers without luck. I hope someone may help. Thanks!
