Remarks

Note

You should not specify the webcam or microphone capabilities in your app manifest file if you are using CameraCaptureUI. If you do so, your app will be displayed in the device's camera privacy settings, but even if the user denies camera access to your app, it will not prevent the CameraCaptureUI from capturing media. This is because the Windows built-in camera app is a trusted first-party app that requires the user to initiate photo, audio, and video capture with a button press. Your app may fail WACK (Windows Application Certification Kit) certification when submitted to the Store if you specify the webcam or microphone capabilities when using CameraCaptureUI.

You must specify the webcam or microphone capabilities in your app manifest file if you are using MediaCapture to capture audio, photos, or video programmatically.
