Hi all,

currently running rooted Stock ROM 4.4.4. and while the video quality os OK Im very dissatisfied with the sound quality when recording videos. Tried using the (new) google Camera app from playtore which is my standard app and also tried using the free OpenCamera app.

The sound is extremely muffled and it seems like noise reduction or internal audio processing is the culpit.
Is there any chance to get rid of the noise cancelling when recording videos?

I know it must be possible because for example the Hi-Q MP3 audio recording app I use allows me to choose the audio input (raw audio, main mic) and I get much better sound quality using the raw audio unprocessed sound input vs. main mic which seems to be amplified.

Any hints on this guys?
Thanks a bunch,
Kusie

Seems my first search was not good enough, did a new search with different search words and found two threads.
Thanks!

There's also quite a lengthy thread called something like "Microphone issues" that also covers this issue.
