It's been bugging me since the day one, that I have four zero-length videos showing in the camera app's gallery, but I haven't been able to identify what they were until now. I've tried to delete them using the pulley menu, but the delete has always failed very silently.

As of 1.0.3.8, I figured out what these videos were and why it's been impossible to delete them. They are directories located at~/Pictures/Camera/.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. mkdir ~/Pictures/Camera/foo (Using what ever method is most comfortable for you)
  2. Launch Camera
  3. Swipe left to open the gallery.
  4. Swipe left to find this new entry, which is a 00:00 length video, which you cannot play.

Here is a little slideshow of what they look like: (on an unrelated side-note, it seems like the screenshot app wraps few pixel rows from top to bottom for what-ever-reason)
