Thumbs up better Video quality possible?

Hi,

I have something in the registry and found as
the quality of video (MPEG4) can improve.

Under this key you can Reserved memory of the camera:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HTC\Taskmanager\Lite]
"DesiredMemory" = dword: 8192

I have experimented a bit and found that the value of 8192
(original 4096) is the best compromise between memory and quality.

Less would the quality would deteriorate, and more
the device is slow overall (the start of the camera).

The attached CAB 8192 represents the value that you can test it so times.

I see one fault in those videos. All are different kind of usage, for example first one is clearly most moving and because of that it has to update more than second and third.
second video there is only one small moving part which makes it way easier for phone, same goes for third one.

Dont know how much youve been testing etc but not good video examples at all for testing that.

Hope it makes difference without slowing whole device down too much.

i've tested (here: http://www.hdblog.it/mobile/htc/2009...riprese-video/ ) with default setting and 12288. It seems that there is no difference ... test with GSPOT (tha same kbps ... resolutions etc...)

I made some mistakes?

Thanks for this. It would have been good if all the videos were the same as the last one so it would be easier to compare and also have the movement of the cars.

Hi!
I've found a bug in your "S64 better Video quality.cab". Value is set to 33170 (=8192h) instead of recommended 8192 (decimal).
