Default [MOD] Stock camera quality MOD 5/24/14

Drawing inspiration from what @kevinrocksman was doing over here I decided to have a go at modding our stock camera to increase the bitrate as well as increasing it in third party apps as well.


5/24/14 Update
Fixed a bug with the slow motion recording, it's now triple the stock bitrate. That should help with the quality a lot.
Increased picture quality to 100%
More tweaks to the media_profiles.xml, added 4kuhd but it's still not showing up in 3rd party apps (help?)
Switched to a flashable package (thanks @rompnit !)


Features

720p@18mbps
1080p@50mbps
4k@85mbps(Samsung Camera only for now)
Audio@256kbps for all modes
Always full quality for photos
4k time limit now at 7 minutes


1. Download zip file
2. BACKUP YOUR ORIGINAL FILES and remove SamsungCamera.odex from /system/app if present
3. Flash the provided zip
5. Reboot




DOWNLOAD


Revert to stock

A more detailed crisper looking image. In my honest opinion the video is a bit mushy and blocky, this helps with that. Also, if you're editing this with serious video software on a pc it gives you a lot more latitude when color correcting and working with shadows/highlights.


Now if I could only fix the auto-correct lol. Sorry about all of the edits.

I see you found the bitrate areas, length is another option to look for.

Yeah, I believe so. You could always try it though. As long as you backup your apk and odex files first you can always go back.

It is for now, I haven't even looked into picture quality yet.
