  2. MOD Explanation for every rom. ( ensure to read this, there are few mods for each rom. )
  3. MOD Downloads. ( the downloads from my host, there must be all the zips, usually flasheable )

Sense 3.5
Actually.
  • Better image quality ( compression set to 0% )
  • Higher bitrate values ( 10mbps up to 40mbps practically BluRay DVD quality in terms of bitrate ) nothing is more clear than this
  • Generally increased FPS stability, and camera performance.
  • boost of 80MB.

In the Future.
  • Try to get working the 60FPS in any video mode.
  • Make few UI.
  • Improve a lot more the FPS performance in low light conditions.

CyanogenMOD Based

Actually.
  • Better image quality ( compression set to 0% )
  • Higher bitrate values 8mbps up to 20mbps only HD working. ( 1080 not working due kernel or system )
  • Better FPS
  • boost of 80MB.

In the Future.
  • Try to get working the 60FPS in any video mode.

What do you need to know before download or flash anything.

First of all, know what type of rom you have, there are 2 types.
  1. CyanogenMOD Roms ( also miui )
  2. Sense roms ( 3.0 | 3.5 ) is not the same, so be careful.

If you know aleardy what type of rom you have, download the mod below.

If there are more roms working fine with this mod ( or kernel ) must be added here, so i need reports, thanks.

You can play with the values in /system/etc/media_profiles.xml but may be ultimately limited by restrictions at kernel level for the moment

Edit: you also need to consider potential sd I/O limitations

The /system/etc/media_profiles.xml only work on Android 2.2 devices ( to my knowledge )

I don't care about I/O a class 4-6-10 works very well ( y can play videos with 20mbps and higher bitrate at 1080p without buffering ) and the SGSII with about 7MB/s of writes speed can do 30mbps so i think the sensation with higher i/o its ok.

The DSP it seems better than the SGSII, so i so I think you will not have bottleneck.

About the kernel... What?
to my knowledge, the O2X SGSII don't use the kernel to control bitrate speeds.

historically, the media_profiles linked to settings _in the kernel_. So changing a single file would do nothing without patching the kernel too.

(The media_profiles.xml file just describes the os what to expect, but it's the kernel + radio that actually controls the DSP). This is why you need a certain kernel + radio image for the HTC Desire for instance to enable 720p recording.

Now, I have no idea if it works the same on the sensation, I have _no_ information about the internal workings of the newer DSP.

For now, trust me when I say that comparing things to the SGSII has _no_ use whatsoever. The DSPs and the way of fetching images from the sensor are completely different. Also don't expect changing a simple .XML file will make a difference. This has not worked on HTC devices before, but who knows, maybe we're lucky now.

Bitrate can be affected by tweaking media_profiles.xml alone, in GB too, and yes, the kernel does come into it - video decoders & encoders

Just take a look to media_profiles... i cant see 1080p there, and any usefull information... so i think media_profiles isnt being used.

Ok, so... if edit kernel is needed, what is next? we can't do nothing? ( until become S-OFF? )

Look again at the bottom of said xml. Even if you lift any constraints in the apk smalis they will be overidden by the limitations in media_profiles

Done a lot of development on these devices over the past few years, min/max Bitrate is defined in media profiles, along with several other "limitations"/ "min/max" values.

If additional kernel modifications are required (which is in theory possible) we would require source and s-off yes

Rest assured, as soon as the source is up on HTC developers, a custom kernel is my number 1 priority

Ok for now, we gonna wait.

The improvement of the camera is nessesary!! i think the sensation have a hard compression, and that was the reason why that crapy photos, and blurred videos. ( only 10mbps at 1080p and 8mbps at 720p )

thanks for the help.

media_profiles are only applicable to AOSP Roms and programs in the market, HTC controls everything on Sense from the Camera.apk itself
