Hey guys! Does this all require root? The generic pixel camera port works fine for me, but this one crashes immediately. I installed twice, and restarted after the install, but after granting privileges, the app crashes each time I try to open it. Is there something I am missing? I would love to use this app!

Thanks guys.

Try to uninstall the original app, then install the new one.
Mine used to crush, then I uninstalled it and reinstalled. It works then.

      I used google port from scrubber, link in youtube video below, front cam selfie is wonderful and its most stable. No settings required.
      Google Camera Port for front selfie portrait mode

      What device did you use this on? As far as I am aware, the front potrait/HDR+ mode will crash on OnePlus devices. In the video that you've linked, the device is LG G6 and not a OnePlus device.
