    A friend of mine came to visit today and coincidentlally has a HTC Desire too. We got talking about the phone of course and he complained that his recording in HD 720 p was always plagued by random hacking and freezes. Since i did not have the same problem on my desire when i recorded in 720p,we decided to try and compare phones and see what the problem could be and it may seem that we hit a possible reason.

    Firstly, my friend is an 'app whore' , he downloads and installs anything remotely attractive to him just for bragging rights even if he does not use it often. As a result of this, his phone had 27 mb memory left on its internal memory. Mine on the other hand had 68mb . We then uninstalled a barrage of apps and got his phone to 66 mb free internal memory and what do you know? It now records smoothly without a slightest problems.

    Could this be the problem? the low internal memory somehow affects the smoothness of recording in HD ?

    Or could it be just one of the apps we uninstalled that may have been interfering with the phones recording abilities.


    I just felt this theory was worth sharing with you guys. :rolleyes:

    I personally would say it was the low amount of ram causing the problems.
    What class of sd card do you have as there is the possibility of a low class needing more internal memory free than a higher class

    freezing reason
    -low memory space
    -change your SD card if it is class 2,because HD video support SD card class 4 and class 6. class 2 doesn't support well for HD video. HTC delivered everyone 4GB SD Card class 2 with desire, coz its cheap one in the market.

    I got freezing on a fresh wipe, I use apps2sd+ and still have 75mb free, still get freezing if I try 720p. I think its probably more related to SD card, I only use class 2. Will get a class 6 when/if the 32gb ones materialise - right now carrying more of my music with me is higher on my priorities than 720p so ill stick with the large but slow card :p

    Obviously the higher class cards give you smoother recording, but the more internal ram you got free enables you to use a lower class as it acts like a cache.
    Only thing is it doesn't work so well if your clips are longer ones, as the card acts as a bottleneck & when the ram gets full you get jerkiness back

    If you have the money to buy a 32 gig class six card when they come out, I don't suppose you could send a few hundred quid my way in the post? It would, after all, just be small change to you, and I could use the cash! :p
