mergAVCam is not supported on mac since we have the camera control in the engine.

Last I checked the AVFoundation barcode detection was not implemented in the macOS version of that framework either but it seems it has been in Catalina so I’ll raise this internally as a possibility.

Ideally we would extend the android barcode scanner widget to be cross platform.
