I'm trying to use Galaxy S4 as a video camera for recording offline usergroups. Apart from whether it's a good idea, it's generally succeeding, but there are some critical problems:
Android file system does not support files larger than 4GB. At 1280x720 resolution, this is about 40-something minutes, which is sometimes less than what I typically need (some sessions take 60+ minutes), which causes a sudden video stop, and if I'm conscious enough, I press the recording again, and lose about a minute or less in between.
I'm thinking this problem might be solved by rooting the phone and buying one of the programs that allow mounting NTFS for Android, formatting an SD card as NTFS as well. Would you expect this to work? Any luck with any of this programs and recording to memory card?
Sometimes the phone blurs the text it records and afterwards the text becomes clear again. Sometimes this happens quite often that it becomes annoying to anyone watching the video. I have tried disabling video stabilization but this doesn't seem to improve it much. It still insists on blurring text at random times. It probably is trying to help me with some autofocus thing, but it's only doing harm.
I'm short of ideas for this one. Anyone managed to stop it?
Not sure if this should be split into 2 questions, but would appreciate help on either anyway. Thanks a lot.
