    on my nexus s with the latest OTA, no matter what I can't seem to record video without the video stuttering, audio out of sync.

    can anyone please help me before I ship it to samsung. the video skips seconds, not just frames, and the audio is horribly out of sync.

    did you ever sort your problem ? my nexus s does the same thing and has done throughout 3 software versions. ive lost epic moments caught on camera due to this...another trick my nexus s likes to play on me is shooting the video in portrait mode when im holiding the phone landscape so when i watch it back it ends up sideways.

    I took the time to register to this forum just in case someone with a clue at Google sees this.

    My videos taken with the Nexus S systematlcally skip and sometimes loose sync. It seems that it has become worst with the amount of apps and running processes. It certainly feels like a software issue where there is not enough priority given to the video capture thead. Note to Android developpers: when I shoot a video, I CARE ABOUT NOTHING ELSE. I will not even take a call. Would it be possible to freeze any non essential process and ensure that the video capture works. For a company that owns the "Broadcast Yourself" trademark and dares put their name on my phone and automatically upload my videos, I would expect a device that can actually CAPTURE properly.

    Please take the time to post if you experience the same problems.

    Same problems here. Playback goes slow motion then audio out of sync. Also flips the video sometimes. Pain in the derri

    I'm not sure if this will work for everyone, I went into "Manage Apps" and simply cleared data on the Camera app. I was able to record a few video clips without any shuttering, frame skips or out-of-sync audio. Hope this works for you all !
