    I'm on 4.4.2 also. I followed the instructions perfectly. My phone is rooted but it also worked on my wife's phone which is 100% stock.

    This option disables video recording on Motorola phones giving an error message not able to record media.

    NOT SO FAST. New wrinkle.
    Okay Google Everywhere working on your device without waiting for Google, but there's a catch. If you turn on the lock screen functionality, it makes your phone a little less secure.
    Details at Android Police.
