For HWA ROMs.

Youtube fix is available at
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=139

Flash the above zip and then the youtube only fix or flash the all inclusive zip from the post.


After many weeks and long nights of reversing and staring at the proprietary QCom binaries, I have a breakthrough and got hardware video encoding to work. Here is a zip file which can be flashed on top of an ICS ROM.

The video is encoded fine, but may playback on the device choppy, which I guess is due to the decoder codec not working fine. If you play the recorded video on a computer, you should not see any choppiness.

Many thanks to dermann for sending me his device which helped me do this work.
Enjoy and thanks for your feedback. I will post source changes later.

Greatly appreciate all your generous donations, every bit of it. Thanks a lot.

You never give up do you. This has literally just been released, and your already badgering the dev for more. Every thread I visit I see you hassling devs for updates. If you need full functionality go back to a GB rom

@op: thanks so much for your commitment. quality seems improved but framerate is still poor. Is this due to kernel lacking full hwa?

Wow! This is great news
Will test and give feedback.

Edit:
Recording works. The video needs to be played on the computer/using a 3rd party app (mx works great)

Thanks again.
