    Default Google Nexus 7 (2013) Video Recording is Choppy

    So I've had this device for a couple weeks and it's simply fantastic. The camera is very nice, despite what I've heard others say (of course it's no professional camera), and I was going to try and use it as a camera for recording videos I make with a friend.
    I've noticed that the rear camera records very choppy videos whether it's 1080p or 720p. Does anyone else get this?

    the video quality won't be as good as the pictures, that is for sure.

    I've been having the same problems. After the kitkat update, I noticed all the videos (whther 720p or 1080p are recorded at a choppy 22fps with a reduced bitrate as well). The bitrate used to be ~12mbps now it's about 8mbps. One semi-reasonable workaround is using a different app which lets you specify your recording paramaters and codecs. For example, I've found the app "Focal" (beta/free) to give me smooth 30fps 1080p video. I would also recommend trying "Snap Camera HDR" (free). Unfortunately, despite my best efforts, I still get periodic dropped frames so the video recording isn't 100% smooth, but it's a lot better than this bungled update.
