    Our device has the ability to record up to 720p video, but is bottlenecked by an outdated compression method. This post is to start an OFFICIAL Petition for HTC to offer us an update that will allow us to gain full access to this feature. We are only asking that our EVO's be given the ability to compress HD content properly.

    Chime in to join this OFFICIAL Petition.

    Knowing HTC, it won't happen. But sure.

    I believe the issue will be solvable when the PacketVideo library within Android is replaced by something like CoreCodec, rumored for sometime AFTER 2.2 release, but,

    SURE.

    I remember the petition way back in the day when HTC was using the Qualcomm 7200/7201 chipset in all their devices (Touch Pro, Diamond, etc.), but didn't include any type of video drivers on the device. The GPU was capable (for its time). Sad to say, a petition was created, but nothing ever came out of that.

    HTC Engineer: Sir, Android forums dot com user YouNoAsian has made an "official" demand on the Internet in the form of a forums post.

    HTC Space Captain: An OFFICIAL petition you say?! DAMN YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU! We have no choice but to acquiesce. He did call it an "official petition." MAKE THE CHANGES AT ONCE!

    Even after they promised, several times, that the update was "out next month", years later and still no changes

    Wouldn't an "official" petition be an actual petition? Like say... petitiononline.com so there is something to actually send them?

    I think it is more to do with 65nm chips in such a small form factor not being able to handle it. Pick your poison: low frame rate, bit rate, or lower resolution.

    "Beer", it's what's for dinner.

    Fab size only has an indirect influence on power. Going down to a small fab size doesn't, in itself increase the computing power of any given semiconductor. What it does allow for is a decrease in power consumption, and thus heat. With less heat, one is able to clock a processor faster without overheating problems.

    So, not withstanding the internal design differences between the Snapdragon, the new 1 Ghz TI OMAP, Samsung Hummingbird, and the Apple A4, they are all ARM A7 chips running at 1Ghz. So while the other chips are rumored to be faster than the snapdragon, fabrication size isn't the power-limiting feature here.

    I guess your right. I should get to that...

    I am just trying to get everyone hot and bothered about this issue and then maybe you we can start to actually get some chatter going on this issue.
