Seems like 720p recording is becoming the norm.

I wonder if we'll see a phone with 1080p recording by the end of the year. By see, I mean rumors leaks stuff like that.

Doubtful to see an actual device before the end of the year with 1080i(p) recording. It's possible that next years devices such as iPhone5 and next years Android phones may include it but I'm not sure I'd even bet on that. Really though, is either 1080i or 1080p necessary on a camera?

Well in my opinion, 720 really isn't necessary. At that point, just walk around with a camcorder in your bag or whatever. But I was just throwing it out there.

Hi,
captivate is an okay phone
its lacks android 2.2, camera flash and it runs touch wiz (laggy samsung UI)
from what i read above, you need a nexus one, runs 2.2, has camera flash and allows tethering
its unlocked so u can use it on any GSM carrier around the world
and has a solid UI and a very strong hardward to go along.
also its google's flagship phone meaning it will get all the updates before anyone(android 3.0 & 3.5)
it will cost you some money since its not available for sale anymore by google or any carrier (never was on sale by any carrier)
you can get it on ebay or craigslist, if you dont want to dish out so much, get the captivate and trade it.
good luck!

When I did a comparison of phones on walmart.com, it said that the captivate could play MVK videos.

Is this true?
I have not read this anywhere else.

Also is the captivate on 2.2 yet? I am about to get one.

Yes it can, actually. Though the only thing is that while it can play MKV, the audio inside the MKV container is usually Dolby Digital or DTS and the Captivate cannot decode those. Audio has to be AAC, MP3, or AMR. Also, stock 2.1 can't really handle higher bit-rate video files.

I use minicoder to convert all of my videos, since it compress the size with little loss of quality.
My options are

Video: x264, xvid, theora - I use x264
Audio: Nero AAC, Vorbis, Lame MP3, FFMpeg AC-3 - I use AAC
and my audio bitrate is set at 40 kb, and video is set by size, I usually do 75mb for a 40 minute video.

Is this okay? Can the caaptivate handle this on 2.1 or 2.2 out of box?
Or is rockplayer needed?
Can rockplayer handle this?

Oh yes. The Captivate can handle that, no sweat. It can actually handle a LOT more than that... By high bit-rate I meant primarily 40Mb/s 1080p. Also the Samsung Video player is probably the best you'll find on any phone ATM. My settings on Handbrake are usually:

H.264 - for video codec @ 2Mbps. That way I can keep a decent 720p copy on my phone.
AAC - 160Kbps for clear audio

Though if you're looking to put a BUNCH of videos on your phone, then your way would probably be better as my settings only allow me about 4-5 Full movies and maybe a tv show or 2.
