    I have a Galaxy S6 edge on T-Mobile and juts noticed this morning that whenever I attempt to record a video I get a warning stating "The video codec is currently being used by other applications..."

    Is it possible to determine which application has it in use? I've closed all running applications which didn't resolve the problem. Restarted the phone without starting any other applications before the camera and that failed. I'm not seeing any information about this issue in the couple of searches I've done so far but wonder if it's an isolated issue or something common.

    Short of a Factory Reset, which I'm not fully opposed to doing, is there a potential solution?

    Try clearing system cache before considering a reset https://www.androidpit.com/how-to-cl...-the-galaxy-s6

    Sorry, as much as I hate factory resets, I think that's the only thing left to try

    Go to camera settings and reset camera settings. It worked for me, I had that same message coming up.
