I'm looking for the JavaScript code to limit the upload mediatype when running on an Android, so that video/mic etc is not shown as possible upload types ?

We're using

acceptFileTypes: /(.|\/)(gif|jpe?g|png|bmp|ico)$/i

but are still getting viceo/mic options on the upload screen

why do you want to stop the user to pick a photo from its camera ?
I don't see the mic on your screen capture.

Hi Leakim971,

Sorry, it was the wrong Picture I have uploaded - it looked like this (see attached). But we have fixed it now - I think the code, that we ended up using was something like this:

accept="video/;capture=camcorder" accept="audio/;capture=microphone"
