I have a HUAWEI g300, and while the quality of still images taken with the camera are great, video quality is awful. Or, to be more specific, the audio that goes with the video is very poor.
I believe that this may be due to the file format of the video.
For this reason, I would be interested to know whether there are any ways to change the file format which videos are recorded in. Are there any alternative camera apps that are any good, which ideally allow the user to select their own file format? My device is rooted btw.
I would like to upload videos from my computer to my SF. I'm using Salling to do the same thing with my music but was wondering what the easiest way is for videos? Is there even a video player on the SF? What file formats will it recognize? This is a very important feature to me and I'm surprised it isn't very intuitive.
I wanted to know if it is possible to improve to improve audio recorded during a video??
I mean I can record video at 720p 25 fps, but the DAMN audio gets recorded at 12 kbps!!
It's just tinny and annoying sound cuts up all the time.
So it is it possible to increase the bitrate of audio via modifying some system file or changing some parameters in phones hidden settings or something like that?? my phone is a Chinese Zopo PILOT ZP100. .
btw, When I use Sound / voice recorder, it records in 3gppp at high setting with 127 kbps AAC audio.
I want to get the input/opinions of some other people on this topic. I have a couple of big events coming up that I will be recording with my (soon to have) Evo. Now I know that Qik is gonna be huge when it comes to 2 way video calls, but my question/dilemma is to either use the native Camcorder/Video Camera app and upload them to Youtube, or to use the Qik app and have it stored on the Qik site. From what I've heard and seen, when a video is recorded/streamed to Qik, the quality that results on the Qik site is NOT nearly as good as what you're actually seeing and recording on your screen (compression, whatever, bla bla bla). However, I have seen videos on Youtube from people with EVO's where the quality is a ton better and it looks really good. So, why would anyone want to use the Qik app to take video recordings, when the end result on their website is of less quality as supposed to using the Camcorder/Video Camera app and posting it to Youtube? Is the only benefit for Qik is that people can watch your video being streamed pretty much right then and there (with only a little delay)?
Yamb is a program I've been using to be able to change the .mov container of videos to .mp4. Basically, what I use it for is to download movie trailers off the iTunes store, and make them compatible to watch through my PS3 (or Xbox 360) on my 50" HDTV and my surround sound system. You can convert 720p or 1080p trailers to watch on your HDTV with absolutely no loss of video quality or audio quality. Not to mention the conversion process usually lasts anywhere from 5 to 10 seconds.Now, what do movie trailers have to do with my Samsung Vibrant 720p videos I recorded you may ask?Well, this same program makes your .3gp videos (the format the Vibrant records in) compatible to watch on your TV, via your PS3 or Xbox 360.
I can not figure out how to transfer my videos from my SF to my PC via USB. I successfully transferred one video via dropbox, but it seems to be having trouble with the current one I keep trying to move, maybe due to it's larger size, and it seems like it should be obvious to just plug in the USB and transfer it. The trouble I am having is that once my pc finds my SF and I "mount" it, and I have tried this via mass storage and via the media sync options, my pc will only let me view and transfer the files from the sd card, but apparently the videos I record with my phone are not stored on the sd card.
I need to know how to a) make the videos/pictures store on my sd card rather than the internal memory and b) transfer the videos/pics from my phone to my pc via USB. Usually I can figure this stuff out, but after searching all day, and reading tips, and going through the manual, and installing samsung's usb drivers, I have had it and need a nudge in the right direction.
A few weeks ago any video taken via Hangouts would get automatically be backed up (like photos). I could view them online in my google+ autobackup area.
There recently was a change though so now those videos don't seem to be backed up automatically. (Photos still get backed up fine.) And I can't figure out how to save such videos while within Hangouts.
I recently took my Epic to a concert and recorded some videos. The picture quality of the videos was OK but the audio was amazingly distorted. There was a lot of bass at the concert which greatly I assume distorted the entire videos sound. I am greatly disappointed as I cannot listen to the songs cuz the sound so bad! Is that normal?
I recorded like 5 videos with my inc, but now only 1 is there. I watched all of them fight after I recorded them, and then tried to email them to someone. Since then the videos wouldn't work. It said the video would not play. Now the videos are gone. Has anyone had any problems like this?
I am using a Samsung Galaxy 3 with android 2.2 and I want to install some application what is downloadad from many different sources. So now here is my problem:
1. I copy the choosen .apk file on my SD card.
2. I have downloaded ASTRO file manager.
3. I have ticked the option installing non-android applications.
4. I want to open the apk file from there but when I click on app installer I onyle get a blank screen and under the details I receive the following error message:
Could not open xy.apk as APK file.
In the meantime I have also copied some music files on my mobile, these are all MP3, works fine on my comp however when I wanted to play it on my mobile with several music players it said the file format is not supported...
The phone used to have 2.1 and I made the update manually but after the update...
I want to be able to use/view the video's I record with my phone on my computer. (open from an email or use in window's movie maker)I have a new computer with Windows seven at work and a Vista laptop at home. I can send the video to myself and try to open in from my email or tether to the computer and transfer the file manually. Either way I can't open with windows media player. Video's taken with default "Camcorder" app on a myTough 3G running Android 1.6.I know it has something to do with the codec's the phone uses but wonder why they wouldn't use codec's that are compatible with the most commonly used pc's?Is there any way around this? Some kind of converter for the computer or for the phone?Is there another camcorder app that can record video with a different codec or is it phone hardware specific?So far have been able to use these forum's to sort out most of my Android problems but I'm stumped on this one. It doesn't seem like it should be this hard to do. Should be more user friendly.
I was wondering what file format the Alert/Notification sounds that come on Android phones, are in. Everytime I tried to google it I would just get a list of all the sound/music formats supported by android, but never just the format that the stock sounds are in. Is it different for different brand of phones. I didn't think it was, i figured all android phones used the same file formats, but you never know, so I figured I would ask. But either way, what file format the notification/alert sounds are in.
Just in case it is different for some phone makers, I am currently rocking the LG Revolution.
i am working n audio recording. i can store the file using file.getAbosolutPath() mehtod. it stores the file in path: /data/data/com.example.audio_demo/files/output.amr i wann store that in SDCARD.iso and how retrive that and play.
I have created an basic sound recorder application using MediaRecorder class. It has 3 buttons i.e.
1.Record: Start recording
2.Stop: Stop recording
3.Play: Play recorded file ( 3gp format)
I can record any number of files using this. Each files gets name as audio1,audio2 ..etc.The problem is after recording the file I can play it using play button. But if I exit my application I am not able to see that file listed in music menu in emulator. But at the same time when i browse my sdcard using eclipse I can see the recorded audio file. ( I have aleady mounted sdcard image and can see other sdcard content in emulator)Now if I close the emulator and relaunch it I can see that file in emulator music menu. Now suppose that file name is audio1.3gp. If I record a sound using my app it will record it using name audio1.3gp on same location. This time if I goto music menu I can see audio1.3gp file with latest recorded audio.
Is there anything the Dalvik VM supports (in terms of bytecode) which is not used currently because the .class files don't have it?
As an example, if people would write their own Source-to-DX converter for their functional language XYZ, would they be able to implement e. g. full tail calls although the .class file does support tail calls only under certain circumstances?
Although I've had my Galaxy for a couple of months now, I'm still learning how to use it
One of my main queries is though, file transfer from my Galaxy to my MacBook Pro - why can't I see previews of what I'm transferring? I have to transfer the file to my MacBook, and then decide if I want to keep it or not because that's the only way it'll reveal what it is. I thought I'd be able to SEE what's on my phone to then be able to select what I want to transfer. But all I see are file names which as you know are always just like IMG_0000786597.jpg
I am writing an app that needs to be able to open (be associated in the browser download window for example) with a certain file type. The file type has .emx extension and is in an xml format (the top of the files have <?xml version='1.0' encoding="UTF-8"?> ). However, I can't for the life of me get my app associated with this filetype.
The HTC web site claims support for .mp4 and .wmv playback but I have had no luck. I have used various programs from HandBrake to Sony and I can get audio with no video (mp4). I can get audio with still image video (wmv). The DI seems very picky as to which videos it will actually play back. Is there a recommended way to convert my videos / DVS into a format the DI can play?
