    I just got CM7 on my Droid 1. Today, I tried to record a video. I press the Record button, it records, but then the timer freezes at like 4 seconds, and then the camera itself just stops. I can ROTATE the phone in portrait mode and the icons would move, but the camera just stops, eventually force closes.

    Sometimes, the camera will force close upon clicking on Record. Haaalp?

    No known fix... have to wait for the developers on this one.

    Someone just suggested this for me with the camera and it might work with the video too. Before invoking the camera app, Go to Settings -> CyanogenMod Settings -> Performance (click "OK") -> CPU Settings -> Available governors.

    Select "performance" and now try the camera app. If that works, GREAT... post here and let us all know.

    When you're done taking videos or pictures, you might want to go back and change to the "ondemand" governor to conserve battery life.

    Have you tried wiping data for the camera in settings >applications >manage applications >camera? This enabled me to be able to record video but without zooming.

    If you figure out a fix for this let everyone know, it's a lingering bug for GB on the OG Droid and another reason I stick with Froyo.
