Question [Q] How to modify media_profiles.xml to increase camera quality?

I've been trying to increase my camera's quality by editing the "media_profiles.xml" file, without luck. It seems like it's been ignoring my changes to the file. The first thing I've tried to do was simply to increase the fps from 30 to 60, to see what happens. There are many different encoder profiles for 1080p video, so I've edited them all, without luck.

I know that you can already record in 60 fps by selecting the different mode i the camera app, but I'd also like to increase the bitrate of both the video and the audio, and also the resolution (if possible) to the camera sensor's maximum of 2688х1520 pixels. (120 fps possible, for ultra slowmotion?)

I'm s-off with the newest firmware for 4.4.3 and running Android Revolution 9.1 (wiped this morning, so fresh installation).

I know about this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...743174&page=52
But unfortunately it doesn't work for my phone since the 4.4.3 update (even though there's a person saying that it does work for him/her) I also want to learn how to edit the settings so I can customize it so it suits me.

Thanks for reading

I can't help with this, but have you tried asking in the picture thread? There are a couple of guys in there that might help.

Alright, in the thread I linked in OP, I followed the instructions some users suggested and made the mod work again
It works flawlessly for me and many others.

Unfortunately OP is banned, so I've attached the file that's I've edited to work (per the instructions) with Sense 4.4.3 ROMS, happy flashing!
