- Record and play tested on Gingerbread Rom 4.5.1-134 (nandroid-backup + fixed sbf)


Hi,
I uploaded sample videos of green and red lens cameras:
green = WVGA
red = WVGA
red = 720p

sample_red_green_720p_WVGA



Ok. I tested extensively this 720p patch with lgcamera pro. The best of the best is video settings at 1280x720 is with MPEG4 as its encoder, 5Mbit and 30fps ticked as well. Video recording and playback is very smooth no lagging at all. Although video playback at 24fps but it's awesomely working smooth.


.... after running the 720p recording fix that the preview of the camera does not show (black screen). ....

Solved problem, have 2 set in 2nd init boot menu auto boot to normal, black screen problem gone now and record 23fps video 720p without overclocking.

Thank you for your work.

wow!!! for me rec/play in 720p is extremely important!
although i have to admit, it is less that i desperately need those features but 720p in [email protected] once and for all proves that the defy really has a omap3630 with iva 2.2 installed which just got crippled on the softwareside (remember the discussion???)! GREAT WORK!!!
sadly i am a quite satisfied miui user and i know that this mod is kernel dependend, so i won't be able to use it right now :(
thats why i have some questions:

1. could you please post a sample of 720p recording??? thanks

2. has the 720p-playback improved (-> lagging in high profile vids)since antibytes mod for froyo?

3. and of course: WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO DO THE MODIFICATION ON LIBS FROM FROYO KERNEL???? lets say for 3.4.2.177-03/05 or cee 179 :D

THANKS A LOT!!!

Ok.. Firstly, my rom is rooted stock gingerbread 2.3.3. With installed 2nd-init ver1.8 running.

Just flashed the zip file via 2nd-init custom recovery. Follow with installing lgcamera-pro ver5.87..

Lgcamera configuration
Camera settings:
White balance - auto
Scene mode - auto
Flash mode - auto
Anti banding - auto
Focus mode - auto

Photo Settings:
2592x1456
Overlay a time & date on the photo
JPEG quality - 100

Video settings:
1280x720
Video encoder - H.264
Video file format - MPEG 4
Video bitrate - 4Mbit
Video framerate - 30

Here's the video of 30 sec and a picture under the above settings taken with my Defy red lens. Both files are taken under low lighting/flourecent. Playback still a little lagging but smooth on pc though.. Thanks to walter...!

    Update.zip to enable 720p recording on stock camera app

    This is the flashable update.zip to enable 720p recording in stock camera app. After flashing it you will have 720p, DVD, VGA recording modes in normal mode, A slow motion QVGA which records at 60fps and HD fast motion mode.
    The attachment is just a modification to original zip in 1st post which has the modified build.prop, this zip is useful for all Motorola defy with bayer module and can be flashed to newly flashed gingerbread ROM, it contains all codec and the mediaxml file. You can also flash if you have codec already installed.
    No need for lgcamera after flashing for 720p recording, now it's all stock:)
    If having any problem with flashing make sure you have space in /system folder.
    All the credit for the codec, mediaxml, modified build.prop and the original update.zip goes to walter79
    Please thank him for that.

    I read through most of this thread and didn't see anything about this working with Cyanogenmod 7.1. Does anyone know if it works with CM7.1?

    If nobody knows, I'll do a backup and then install this to test it out.

    Thanks!

    Cm7 = no Motorola rom. = no 720p record

    I just tried and it didn't work. The phone didn't boot and didn't get past the M logo.

    Here's what I did:

    started with cm72-111204.0310-NIGHTLY-Defy
    restored boot and devtree from CM9-ICS-MR0-111207-jordan-KERNEL-2.3.4-Quarx
    wiped cache + dalvik
    installed cm72-111213.0943-NIGHTLY-Defy+
    copied overlay.omap3.so from 4.5.1-134 nandroid to /system/lib/hw (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1285007)

    Installed 720p+panorama-defy.zip with above mentioned result (also tried 720p+panorama-defy+.zip).

    Might be the build.prop included in the zip which messes things up - and my knowledge is way too limited to fix this myself. Maybe Walter could at least comment if it is at all possible to make this work.

    Thanks

    I talked with epsylon. 720p for cm7 need some time. Normal Gingerbread way did not work.
