While evaluating the recording of long video files with SFOS 184.108.40.206 (see https://together.jolla.com/question/151757/camera-recording-broken-video-after-4-gib-file-size-sailfish-os-20414/), I noticed in horror that the videos from my original Jolla phone are nearly unusable because they feature rather choppy image overall and also have annoying long still picture phases every 12-15 seconds or so.
I was asked to cut down the question, so I will move the ranting to the comments. Try this to reproduce:
- Record a still scene while smoothly moving your phone (wave or use circular motion at your discretion) for about a minute.
- Choppiness in image should be apparent right away (even a bit in preview).
- The resulting video will feature generally somewhat choppy video, but also a big still phase after around 12-15 seconds.
