Froyo 720p Playback + Fullscreen Video Recording On The Defy

Froyo 720p Playback + Fullscreen Video Recording On The Defy

XDA forum member -={antibyte}=- has been playing around with the video playback on the Motorola Defy and has finally been able to play a 720p Demo Video that would not previously play on his Froyo running device.

In addition to playback, the XDA member has also managed to get the stock Camera recording in fullscreen 848×480.

Currently, this is highly experimental and playback is slightly laggy. The XDA member has warned that this has not been extensively tested and hence it is essential to backup before you try.

The mod is not installable via Recovery, so you will need some knowledge of using adb to push the file and folder to /system/lib. Please note that this is for Froyo only.

For more information and to download the files, head on over to the modification thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
