Shold CyanogenMod change video recording times?

Poll closed Aug 4, 2015.
  1. Yes, they should increase time to max file size 4GB

    27.2%
  2. They should make files, to auto brake at 4GB mark and continue to record as regular camera would do

    72.8%

    I don't mind the 4gb limit as you suggest but this is not convenient at all

    You're positive you're running CyanogenMod MC11S? If you are, that's a bug you should report.

    Some of the file limitations go back quite a few years. There is a <30 minute time limit that all manufacturers follow in order to avoid being classified as video cameras for duty purposes under EU law.

    You do not have CM11S which has a different camera than CM11. I don't recall which thread it is but it is available on this forum somewhere.

    If you're running the nightlies you have to sideload the custom camera app that is in CM11S. You can find it at the XDA forums under their apps section.

    If there is a system built limitation on how long does a recording could last and the other manufacturers are working around it with their own camera apps, then OP should work it around too.

    Split the video in multiple files inside one folder if you can't make files bigger and thus enable infinite recording (atleast, while there is available memory storage).

    Yet an iPhone will happily record around 50 minutes.

    SO much for the openness of Android it seems. Starting to regret switching.

    One guy from a thread that I often on, says that his OPO has ext4 file system, not a FAT32. But that doesn't matter much. Problem lies with camera app limitations.

    If that's true, there's absolutely no reason for either limit. They should address is ASAP really. As the phone get sold more, and more people will find this horrible limitation.

    Going to keep an eye on the iPhone 6, and Nexus 6. If either can do 4K without silly limitations I'll go to one of those.

    Yes for a very very short amount of time. Look at the first post in the thread.
    The phone limits all video recordings to either 4GB or 10 minutes, which ever comes first.

    Never settle, NO to limitations :)
    I'm sure there will be a solution to this sooner or later

    Yes, the complaint is about the file size limitation.

    I voted for both just right now, I wish my chromecast issue got more attention.
