    Thank you for the tutorial! I am working on a app that is going to be using Text Reco and Cloud Reco. I have a couple questions that I am hoping you could answer. For starters When I run it on unity I the space that can actually read the text is really small and not that forgiving whenever I move the text. I was wondering if you knew of a way to make where it reads the text larger/ more forgiving when the target/Phone moves? Also I was wondering If you knew anything about cloud recognition, I tried using the vuforia tutorials but they are out of date and no longer work and the newest tutorial I can’t seem to figure out either. I’m assuming i’m messing up in some sort of way because when I look online nobody else seems to struggle. Any input would help! especially with the cloud Recognition if you can, thanks!

    I am not able to attach the video to the plane, can you tell me what could be the reason behind it?

        I tried that but the video doesn’t work again, can you tell me why this tutorial is not helping me, I even downloaded QuickTime.
