    For the past couple of days I've been attempting to make an app that captures video in 720p resolution. (It will also need to do other stuff while capturing.) However, for some reason the VideoCaptureDevice object shows [email protected] (VGA) as the only supported format, even though my Lumia 800 can capture 720p with the built-in camera app. I've tried setting the DesiredFormat to [email protected] but it only seems to record VGA video.

    The code I'm using is pretty much the same as this: How to: Record Video in a Camera Application for Windows Phone (With the addition of my attempts to change the capture resolution through the VideoCaptureDevice.SupportedFormat property.)

    What the heck's going on? Can't user apps record high quality video? I'm using the 7.1 API.

    My only guess is that it's a 7.1 issue. Most APIs in WP7.x were pretty barebones from what I've read.

    I'm considering learning to program so I can develop for WP8 - so if I find any info about the WP8 API, I'll let you know.
