    video camera app for 8100 running 4.5?

    Advertisement



    Now for a couple of days I have been looking for the info I saw months ago saying it was possible, but I can't seem to find it again. Yesterday I read the 8100 can't do it, even with the new os. Would someone please clear this up for me? I'm running 4.5.0.42 on a 8100.

    You cannot officialy do it. There is a hack that allows you to do it but even then the quality is horrible and the video is green and other stuff.

    Yeah I found the way to hack the video camera file from the 4.5 os for the curve and push it to a pearl. As dallas1125 said the quality I so bad its not worth messing with.

    well the quality is bad, but since I had been looking for a flashlight app that uses the camera light, this video hack works perfect......you can set the video light to "ON" so when you open the app, you get a super bright light to use!! I love it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ it is very much possible, as the others have stated...and yes quality is terrible but think it looks cool lol u gotta make a vid in the dark its so wierd...

    But wait I did see a few people successfully get a clear, color filled vid with everything perfectly normal...

    All in all...u can do one of 3 things.

    1. Get a friend to do it.

    2. Google it.

    3. Just research and make ur own.

    Number 3 could make u some money and/or fame in the blackberry world

    Either way, when I see how easy it is, ur gonna curse...lol

    It's never going to be possible in the way you want it as the 8100 optics and controller are not sufficient for real-time video capture. You're going to need a newer model phone for this.

    I know, but maybe just a application that makes the phone take pictures really fast, like a slide show, then puts them together and saves it in an .3gp or .mpg format.

    P.S. I have already started working on this so give me time please. I dont know how this works so just to be safe so I can have time, im going to copyright it!

    See...that's the kind of thinking that great apps are made of and that gets things done...lol I came up with an idea to make a portable cell tower on a forum I go to often under a different name, and everybodt interested did research and start thinking...

    Anyway, what I'm saying is if it can be done poorly, it can be done even better

    Hmmm.....we'll see!! You sound pretty confident Lol, I'd give you MAD PROPS if you can do this....but an app like Dallas suggested would be THE BOMB too, very useful and just damn kool to have

    Happy Developing!!
