* Note: EZ Cam Widget automatically detects the devices highest video settings, however the method provided by Android to do this has proved slightly unreliable on certain devices. A few devices used while testing the application showed this problem, these were the Samsung Galaxy S2, HTC Desire HD and HTC Desire S. With all of these devices the override resolution option needs to be used to set a supported recording resolution (see the known issues section below).
Please be aware that the camera hardware is different for almost every device, this makes it difficult to create an application that is compatible with every Android phone. If you have any problems with the application please email us with a detailed explanation of your problem and the Android device you are using. We take any problems with our applications very seriously and will help you solve your problem as soon as possible.
A few devices have known issues and can be solved by using the manual resolution override option. Here is a list of known fixes:
- HTC Desire S - Ensure a supported video resolution is selected and the manual resolution override option is enabled.
- HTC Desire HD - Video will work but will record at lower resolution, this can be set to 1280 x 720 manually.
- Samsung Galaxy S2 - Problem with recording video at high resolutions, ensure manual resolution is set (max. 720 x 480).
- Rebuilt application to work with new versions of Android.
- Implemented Android's action bar.
- Improvements and bug fixes.
- Added video resolutions.
- Redesigned the single slot widget items and removed others.
