Also, we can record at 60 fps in 1080p. Albeit only at 14mbps (yeah, so I'm going to modify that ) but how great is that?! Now people can stop asking for it. Before anyone asks - I have no idea if this carries to 4.4 but I'm sure it does.
If anyone wants proof and doesn't want to decompile the apk on their own - say so here and I'll post the smali.
Well I did it. Haven't done any extensive testing but I managed to record two videos without any issues. There may be issues so as always - be careful. I tested this on Wicked v10, it should work on any 4.3 TW ROM but only time will tell. I need to add that so far its limited to about 10 seconds. Past that it drops to 30 again, not sure why yet.
This is my modified camera. What does that mean? Recording bit rates are higher (both audio and video, 1080 and 720). Video records at 60 fps (keep reading if you don't know why that matters).
1080p: 20 mbps @ 60fps
720p: 17 mbps @ 60fps
Audio: 320 kbps @ 48 KHz
For those that don't understand why 60 frames per second matters it really comes down to quality. For analyzing videos, editing them, capturing frames for a still shot, even general viewing. It allows you to slow a video down (same concept as those super slow motion cameras on TV). Videos just seem more fluid overall also, when played at normal speed.
I'm sure someone can elaborate on the above better than myself.
This is just the apk. Not a CWM installer package. So you'll have to install it manually. One you replace the stock SamsungCamera2.apk you'll have to reboot. Please be mindful of how large these video files will get. Let me know if there are any bugs (I'm sure there will be a few).
Here's the link. It's on my Google Drive.
