Calling WebCamTexture.Play() causes an NSInternalInconsistencyException and crashes the application if camera access is denied



How to reproduce:
1. Open the project ""
2. Build for iOS
3. Deploy the project on an iOS device

Expected result: the project launches successfully
Actual result: an NSInternalInconsistencyException is thrown in Xcode's console

Reproducible with: 2018.4.24f1 (see note 1), 2019.2.21f1 (see note 1), 2019.4.3f1 (see note 1),
Not reproducible with: 2018.4.23f1 (see note 2)
Could not test with: 2019.1.14f1 (see note 3), 2019.3.0a1 (see note 3), 2020.1.0b14 (see note 4), 2020.2.0a1 (see note 4), 2020.2.0a17 (due to a "Failed running bee.exe" error in the Unity console)

Reproduces on: VLNQA00160 iPhone 6S iOS 13.3.1

1. The error in the Xcode console (full error in an edit):
WebCamDevices[1617:1755538] *** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInternalInconsistencyException', reason: 'Cannot pick capture preset'
2. The application does not run into an exception upon trying to run the application; instead, the application launches, requests camera access, and once camera access is denied and the app is fully closed, launching the app once more causes it to crash.
3. An NSInvalidArgumentException is thrown:
WebCamDevices[1684:1767797] *** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInvalidArgumentException', reason: '*** -[AVCaptureSession addInput:] Can't add a nil AVCaptureInput'
4. No cameras can be found (WebCamTexture.devices.Length returns 0)

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2020.2):

    This was fixed by changeset 9fffce07ca78 for case 1187431 and landed in 2020.1.0a11

    Lastly, is it possible to include a method for checking if we have camera access?

    bool WebcamTexture.HasCameraAccess();

    After fixing, it would be great to change WEBCAMTEXTURE.PLAY()

    It could return a bool,
    true = it was able to be played. (Access granted)
    false = it was not able to be played. (Access denied)

    Upon first launch, you will get a prompt to Accept/Deny the camera.
    - Deny it
    Fully close the app, ending it from the task manager.
    Open the app again, and you will see the freeze or crash.
