I cannot reproduce this issue if I closed all the other applications or restart the phone. I think it might be a gecko problem. NI camera developer. David, could you take a look?
Alissa: What is the resolution of the 1-second video that is recorded when this bug occurs? When the bug does not occur, what is the resolution in that case? Hermes: are you able to reproduce this at all? Mike: what is the smallest video size that the Nexus 5 hardware supports, do you know? (In order to enable sending videos by MMS, we need to have something tiny like QVGA, even though that would look ridiculously small on a nexus 5 screen.) Can you think of any reason why the camera might report different video resolutions at different times? Or any reason that it might fail to honor a requested video resolution? Justin: I'm setting needinfo for you because the fact that this is an intermittent bug suggests that it is not just a matter of asking Mike to enable a smaller recording size and it might be something that you have to fix.
Yes, I can reproduce it sometimes. Sometimes, after that I closed all other apps, it can record much longer.

Hi David, 1.while the 1-second video recorded, sometimes, it can be added as attachment, sometimes, it will back to viewfinder[is this need to new a bug?] 2.When the bug doesn't occur, a Fuzzy video will be recorded and can be added as attachments.
In response to comment 3, the nexus-5-l camera supports the following video resolutions: 1080p (aka "high" -- the default), 720p, 480p, cif, and qvga (aka "low").
So I'm guessing it is technically not a bug since the default is 1080p (which is a pretty large res). This bug might also happen on Aries. should we try to fix it for 2.5?
No-Jun: it is a bug. The camera app has code to reduce the video resolution when recording a video to be attached to a message. It has worked in the past. I don't know whether this is an across the board regression or if it is really something that only affects Nexus 5. If it affects Aries, then it should be a high-priority bug.
Per Comment 8, adding qawanted to see whether it repros in Aries
After 15 attempts I was always able to take a 22 second video with the Aries device.
