    Sometimes in my video recordings, there will be a second or two of pixelation - usually towards the beginning - and the the rest of the video will look ok. Other times the pixelation will come and go throughout the whole video. However, most of the time, the video looks ok. The problem is that when there's serious pixelation, the audio and video will be out of sync.

    Has anyone else who uses the video camera regularly noticed this problem? I'm wondering whether I'm having problems w/ my camera or whether this is just something that occasionally happens on the Droid. Thanks for the input.

    droid video

    i have great quality from video but have the same problem with pixilation. I think it has to do with the accelerometer when you move the camera. Hopefully it will be fixed with 2.10, if not I am going to Verizon. Got back form CES and they were showing a steadycam for Droid which works great but no price set yet

    I have similar issues. I hope they get addressed since having a decent video camera is a big reason I wanted this phone.....and it's too late to take it back.

    In addition sometimes I get a popping sound during the recording. Also, sometimes on playback, the video and audio are out of sync.

    It's happened to me in every single video I've recorded and I held the Droid horizontally the whole time.

    I finally went to a Verizon store (after calling Verizon customer service and complaining....they said they would be happy to give me a refurbished unit). At the store, I received 2 units that were refurbished and neither worked for one reason or another. They finally gave me a new one and were very apologetic for my trouble. I'm very happy with it. So far, the video works great.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the video problems happen on all Droids. I know because I returned a Droid for a brand new one b/c of this problem, and although it seemed to work fine at first, the problem came back. We also just got another Droid for my wife and she has the problem as well. It's intermittent, and it seems to occur most often when you're moving the phone around while taking video, but it will happen again.

    Bringing this thread back to life. I am really getting tired of having to deal with this problem, it's getting really old. Does anyone think that 2.1 could be a fix for this, or is a hardware problem. I have thought about calling motorola, but like said before I think all Droids have this problem. I know it's more than just me and the few people in this thread, because I see alot of videos on youtube that have the same look.

    2.1 is noticeably quicker than 2.0.1 so it's very likely this problem will be solved for those experiencing it (assuming it's a resource/OS problem). I haven't taken many videos with the Droid (maybe 6 total). Of those, none have exhibited this behavior. This was on 2.0.1. Since updating to 2.1 I haven't tried the video camera. I'll record some vids again to see if I can reproduce this issue.
