Answering the Question I've been searching for a solution to this issue since I've seen your question, probably when you've set a bounty. Till now I've found tons of unhappy users complaining about the same issue, no pause/resume during a video record. I've read just about every first fifty results presented for every search that I came up with on Google, ...

You haven't mentioned the version of Android running in your phone and I assume it is KitKat. If so, you can use ADB (Android Debug Bridge) tool to record the video. The are many blog sites that explain how to do this and one such that came out first on my Google search is this one. Even Android SDK page on ADB tool commands explain this well. In gist, ...

Try Magisto. I just tested it initially and managed to record for almost 2.5 hours before I stopped it.

This app worked better for me: Cinema FV-5 After installing the app, but before recording the video, do the following: Click Settings Click Audio Source Select Bluetooth Mic Then record your video.

Most video recording apps are IMHO limited to 1h non-stop recording, as you can find with a simple Google search, which is probably a safety measure to not let you run out of battery -- as video recording is the biggest consumer (see What can I do to increase battery life on my Android device?). However, a developer can have his app overriding this limit (...

Have you tried using Kingston Class 4? If you can find Class 10, even better! Source

It seems that that the card write speed is unable to keep pace with HD Video writes on the card. Try using a SD Card with a faster write speed. Also try to use use the same stock SD card in any other mobile with the same HD Video Recording (same bit rate, same resolution) to see if it works there properly. If it fails there too then surely it's a problem ...

Please erase the camera data: Settings -> Application -> Camera -> Clear Data

I had the same promblem. A solution which worked for me was an app "MP4Fix", which you can get in google play for free. It repaired my video in a few sec and placed it in different folder (it kept corrupted video in the same place and also created new repaired one). I know this info might be too late for you but it might help some others.

This issue of video stopping at the size ~3.80GB seems to be file size restriction embedded in the camera app, irrespective of the filesystem your SD card has, or the space left in it. (Note that some camera apps also has a default limitation of 1-hour video duration, however, it is not related to the relevant issue here.) My default camera app in OnePlus ...

Because Samsung cannot predict if the user of the phone will have their sdcard formatted with something like exFAT or FAT32, they (samsung) put a size limit of 4GB in to the camera app. If they did not have the file size limit, and a user did have the sdcard formatted with FAT32, the file would not save to disk and could cause other issues as well. They had ...

igCamera You can select the audio source that you wish with this app. more info: http://davidhadaller.com/note/2012/jun/02/android-alternate-camera-apps-and-using-bluetooth-audio-input-video

Depending on the recording app installed, that could be done by calling the corresponding activity via the am (activity manager). The syntax for this is explained on the ADB help page: start [options] <INTENT> Example given: am start -a android.intent.action.VIEW This means, you first have to find the corresponding intent. This can be done using ...

In theory no limit on recording. But as you say overheading is a big problem on summar days. I experience that camera did shutted down recording video because a software problem. When you recorded, everyframe have to processed by processor. And camera recording process is a stream between processor and camera chip. During this stream, if a bit of stream's ...

Had exactly the same problem. ExFAT is not the solution as Samsung prevents videos over 4 GB. The solution is an app that records for a preset time, then automatically start a new recording. I use AutoBoy Dash Cam. I can now record for hours and hours. You then stick the videos back together. There is a slight glitch at the join, but minimal.

open camera has done the job for me. https://f-droid.org/repository/browse/?fdfilter=opencamera&fdid=net.sourceforge.opencamera

I think you may need something like Detective Video Recorder or Secret Video Camera Pro. I use the second one, just make the desired adjustment for orientation.

Quad HD recording is superior to full HD as you can see from table Source But if Google photos is reducing it Full HD, then the quality will be superior to that of a video recorded in Full HD and uploaded based on Google Product forums Videos higher than 1080p will be resized to high-definition 1080p. A video with 1080p or less will look close to the ...

I solved this problem on a Galaxy S7 running Android 7.0. Go into the camera settings and scroll down to the bottom. Click on "Volume key function" and select "Record video". I can now click the top button on my AB Shutter 3 to record video.

TrinusVR is an app that allows you to stream HD video from you PC to your smartphone, either wireless with some latency, or with a USB cord without latency. Meant for video games but it will stream whatever is on your computer screen. Then you need an HDMI capture device connected to your PC, and you've got a way to port HDMI into your Android. The catch is ...

Secret Eye can help the drain from screen. It allows to record even after the screen is switched off. There are lots of similar apps. Find the best one. Inorder to save more battery, You can root the phone and use an cpu governor to run the processor at lower clock cycle. Freeze unwanted apps. Turn off radio

Video record size depends not only on resolution and framerate but also on the compression algorithm - the encoder used by your phone. I suggest you transfer a video recorded with your phone and another recorded with your friend's phone to a computer and analyze them a bit with MediaInfo. Look for format, width, height, framerate and bitrate (probably the ...

You can use tools like ffmpeg in command line with a terminal to re encode the video to your liking before sending it.

There are some applications available in Google play store. Take a look at SMS MMS Messenger.

This might not be the most efficient solution. It is baffling that this functionality still isn't present on stock Android. You could use this Video Converter app to convert your HD videos.

I would change the video quality settings to a lower rez and try again Leave it 16:9 At 1280x720 instead of 1920x1080. I would imagine your content will be watched on computers and iPads etc and not in imax theatres. You might get 2 hours out of that. It is a stupid limitation . I'm in the same boat so I'll keep looking. Maybe there are some developer ...

I emailed Google about this here is the response I got: "Thank you for contacting Google. I appreciate your patience with me as I look into this issue. It seems as though the limit placed on the video data file of 2gb is written into the android operating system. This is in effect on all types of android devices. I have researched a few video control apps, ...

I'm returning it today because the video is non-watchable, contains flicker and artifacts obviously it's from a bad batch (defective units out of the box, april 2013). At least I've tested it and saw artifacts when casting YouTube video to Google Chromecast.

I found this - i had a similar problem with a mp4 file that was corrupt, and not being able to find version 1.5 of grau anymore. i came up with this solution. [Scenario] video.mp4 (200mb) grau version 1.6 + (only does 50% of video for free version) [Directions] make 2 of the same video files and name them 1.mp4 and 2.mp4 this means you will copy ...

Yes, you can use Google Drive, Dropbox or SkyDrive to upload your Videos. I think though that the YouTube app would be better, just remember to mark your video as "private". You can even set up an extra Google Account just for that which you can both use with the same password.
