Media Profile Modification for the Xperia X8 Brings Lag Free Video

Collaborations make XDA go round. Without them we wouldn’t have CyanogenMod on 50+ phones, root for most devices, or fixes to literally thousands of problems. For those carrying the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8, collaboration has brought even more fixes.

XDA Senior Member CKKnot posted a thread aimed at fixing a variety of video-related problems including:

1. No lag during recording, delay, stuck, Video/Audio interleave (Video and audio does not match each other).
2. Can be played on our x8 stock player.
3. Must be high quality enough/fine to be viewed.
4. The highest bit-rate available.

The purpose of the thread is to find a configuration that yields lag free, high quality video in the stock player. So far, only one configuration has been posted. And while it does allow for all the proper fixes, it breaks video in MMS. Users who want to apply the profile modification need to know how to modify XML files, and how to compile / decompile apk files.

For those who want to contribute a media profile, help fix the currently posted configuration, or simply apply the configuration; head over to the original thread. As always, make sure to backup any files before modifying.

Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
