Camera Slow video camera in cyanogenmod 11.

I installed cyanogenmod 11 on my S3 using cm installer. Everything worked fine until I used the camera one day. I wanted to record a video and found that my phone recorded video only at 15fps in 1080p. So I returned back to touchwiz. Did anyone have the same problem?

Samsung uses closed source hardware drivers for specific functions such as the camera the WiFi and on Note series the pen and gesture features. Since the drivers are closed source Cyanogenmod can't use them so they use an alternative open source drivers, and that doesn't always work, and sometimes works with unsatisfying results. That's why CM is not 100% Stable on Samsung devices.
