The support for this camera is terrible. UIFlow introduces "Media Trans" without any explanation as to what this is - not even a link. The block commands supplied with UIFlow are not that helpful either and I can not get any programs to work. The Arduino example for Web_Cam fails to compile: Error compiling for board ESP32 Wrover Module" even through the Arduino IDE is configured for "ESP32 Wrover Module". The only software that works is Easyloader but what a disappointment this camera is because of the lack of software support, no examples for a working UIFlow and no tutorials. Please fix this. As usual M5Stack are inconsistent in naming modules and in M5Burner they call it "TimerCAM" but in it is called "Timer Camera X" and in UIFlow it is "Media Trans > Timer Camera" - please be more consistent in naming conventions. Quality Control for software at M5Stack should be improved.

RE: V-function Face Detect not working on Unit-V
Hello world101, I have a similar problem. None of the UIFlow Unit V examples work. I am using a M5StickC and the latest firmware on both M5StickC (1.6.4) and Unit V. I would appreciate better help from M5Stack - there are no examples, no help and little documentation - it is all guess work. Others have suggested differences between the two V modules and a flip in image orientation may be required.
Problems with this project - incorrect frequency band allocation and crashes
Re: M5StickC Audio Spectrum Display
Very interesting project especially has it uses the I2S microphone and there are very few examples of using this. I was able to compile your code and download it into the MCStickC. I encountered two problems: 1) after about 10 mins the program crashes 2) displayed frequency band allocations are incorrect
RE: BugC problems
Thanks for the reply. Got the Arduino library example to work. Looking forward to a UIFlow fix. See my review at: Another Uncontrollable Bug: BugC from M5Stack: https://www.facebook.com/thomas.andrews.357/media_set?set=a.2587374321367103&type=3
I have tried both UIFlow and the demo Arduino program and both have problems. Starting with the UIFlow it is a simple program just to test that the motor controls work. In this program it justs loops through the functions: motor0, motor1, motor2 and motor3. At each function it is meant to pulse the motor for 5 secs and turns on and off RGB LED patterns on the two LEDs. The problem is that the program stalls on the first function and does not continue. Motor0 stays on. If I remove the motor control statements the loop completes and repeats and the various patterns of the RGB LEDs work. Could the motor control hardware be defective?
I also tried the demo program: BugC.ino (from https://github.com/m5stack/M5StickC/tree/master/examples/Hat/BUGC but it will not compile. I am using Arduino 1.8.12 and have set the Arduino IDE to Stack5C and have all of the Stack5C libraries installed. The compile errors are:
bugC.cpp:44:8: error: 'class M5StickC' has no member named 'I2C'
M5.I2C.writeBytes(BUGC_ADDR, 0x10, color_out, 4);
Multiple libraries were found for "SPI.h"
Multiple libraries were found for "FS.h"
Multiple libraries were found for "M5StickC.h"
Multiple libraries were found for "Wire.h"
exit status 1
'class AXP192' has no member named 'SetChargeCurrent'
Is there a configuration problem with the BugC.ino or the libraries? The M5.I2C.writeBytes() function is not recognised.
RE: ATOM Matrix and UIFLow V1.4.5 extremely unreliable (including behavior with Arduino IDE) / external program needed to get API key
Hello Juan, I am having the same problem that you experienced it trying to get the API code. How did you do it with Putty? What baud rate? I have connected via Putty on serial coms at both 9600 and 115200 baud and their is no response. My previous M5Stack processors always had the API key printed on the case but not this one - not enough space!
