    Hi Everybody,

    I just upgraded my phone to froyo. Everything seems to be working except for the camcorder. Everytime I try to start it up it the app closes.
    The camera itself is fine, I've taken a few pics with no problem.
    I've restarded the phone but the problem is still there. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

    You've not got LED Light 1.0.9 installed have you?

    Now I've factory reset the phone, but the camcorder still doesn't work. Anyone know how to fix this?

    I installed Qik and recorded video with that, so the problem must be with the application. Anyone know how to fix this? This is driving me mad :mad:

    I had the same problem this morning. Found something on the net saying it could be that the micro sd card is too slow to record video or something like that. 2 days ago I switched to a 16gb card but not sure if I tried the camera.
    Anyways, this morning I put back the old Samsung 4gb card and the video camera works fine now. So I'm not sure if it's a problem with my cheapo sd card or a problem with froyo not dealing with a 16gb card properly.
    have you got another card you can try?

    I have the same problem. No uploads, no new SD card, just a random stop of camcorder ability. It shuts the app down and the camera works well. Very annoying.

    I have the same issue. Everytime I try and open my camcorder after I installed 2.2, it shuts down right away. I use the app all the time. Does anyone have a fix? Will they fix this soon?

    I have it, too. I recorded one video successfully with my new Droid X running 2.2. Now, when I try to use it, hit record, app shuts down.
