Audio quality on Slow Motion Video

7 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

I have a new 16GB Moto G that I am very pleased with, but wondered if someone else with one could try something for me please?

 

I didn't get round to playing with the video recording until after it picked up the KitKat update.  In one review I read it said that the Moto G mutes the audio when you record in slow motion, but mine does not, hence why I wonder if KitKat has changed it?

 

When I make a Slow Motion video recording I get the sound, but with a horrible buzzing that would make it useless.  I do notice that there is quite a lot of background noise with the recorded Moto G audio, so maybe it is just that noise slowed down by the SloMo recording method.

 

Any comments from anyone using a Moto G with KitKat would be appreciated.

 

Cheers.

Thanks very much for trying it.  That's a very good way to describe the sound!

Have you had the KitKat update, and if so do you know if it did it before that?

Never tried it before, but I'm on the retail Kitkat version now ..... maybe it needs a 4.4 update !  Have reported it to Motorola from the Play store

Reply from Motorola tonight:

 

"When viewing Slow Mo video in gallery, press the "options" (3 buttons in upper right) then "mute" to turn off the audio, then hit save."

Thanks gray66, I'll look at that option, but it will probably mute all audio on video playback, but we'll see!
