Video Recorder For iPhone

Monday, April 28, 2008

IPhone Video Recorder, although crippled into uselessness in its free form, at least adds functionality that should have been in the iPhone from the beginning.
The application uses the iPhone's still camera to record video. The CPU overhead means that recording and encoding video at the same time is too much for the little phone's chip and frame rates drop. The solution is to record and then encode afterwards, and this creates admirably small files; around 60MB per for an hour's worth of video (clip below).
Sound is recorded alongside the video, and the results need to be emailed to get them off the phone. The crippled functionality I mentioned? The free version will only record clips of up to 30 seconds. For more, you'll need to spring for a $20 license. Normally this would be fine. We're all for shareware (even if my blog editor Ecto swallowed the first version of this post) but right now iPhone apps run only on hacked hardware. Perhaps the developer, Dreamcatcher, will offer an official version for iPhone 2.0. By then, though, we'd expect Apple to be shipping a built in video camera app.
