Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1962) Video Capture not compressing video after capture; Camera use cancels idleTimerDisabled.
Date Thu, 06 Dec 2012 06:52:59 GMT


Shazron Abdullah commented on CB-1962:

Setting an iOS specific Project Setting will not work -- plugins should not have this as a
dependency. We will have to work with the API and have "thresholds" for width and height that
encapsulate the different quality settings. Not sure yet if that is the right approach, or
will be downright confusing.

In any case, Capture is slated for API audit and is deprecated for the new getUserMedia stuff: (but that's probably months from now) so I don't know
if this is worth the effort. 

The best course of action will be to revert

> I have noticed the video capture option behaving differently in version 2.2.0. Captured
video is no longer compressed as it used to be in v2.1.0 - which is a good thing as we can
now have high quality video, but transferring an uncompressed video takes forever. Selecting
the captured video from the Camera Roll still compresses it before uploading. Is there an
undocumented compression function that has been added to the capture API in v2.2.0.
> Additionally, I used application.idleTimerDisabled = YES in my didFinishLaunchingWithOptions
routine in AppDelegate.m to keep the application from sleeping, but now using the camera resets
that when capture is finished, and my app now goes to sleep and times out during file transfer.
