    Hi,

    I am using the 950XL at my work and love it.

    Recently I bought a USB Microphone (Rode Podcaster). It works really well while using it to record voice-interviews with the audio recorder..but while shooting video the phone uses the internal mic instead of the external!?

    Microsoft Sweden tells me the video-app does not support external microphones and do not have any solution getting around the problem.

    This just cant be right?! Why having a high-end phone with a beautiful camera and USB OTG and do not letting it to support external microphones in video???? In situations like this I actually feel a bit stupid not going for an iPhone.

    Have Microsoft simply forgotten to unlock something in the code for the video-app? It just dont make any sense.

    Regards,

    Per (Sweden)

    while i haven't tried with my 950 (or windows 10 in general) I was able to record video with an external mic in the headphone port on WP8.1 on my 920.... for my use, it wasn't as clean as using my dslr with microphone

    Tried any third party camera apps instead of the Microsoft one?
