The Camera on my Android API 10 Virtual Device isn't working. While creating the AVD there are three options I found for Back Camera:

  1. None
  2. Webcam0
  3. Emulated

I tried all options 1, 2 and 3 to no avail. Also, Front Camera is set to None and selection is disabled. What is it that must be done for the emulator camera to work? Will any Camera app solve my problem? Can I have the Front Camera enabled somehow?

What it shows - no matter which option of the above I select - is a white screen with two icons near the bottom edge of the screen. One icon is for setting picture quality and/or restore default settings. The other icon is to enable/disable "store location" See the image below

enter image description here

Thanks in advance for help!

Select version >= 4.0 and it will support the camera.
