What happens, if video approaches full storage?

Post by peng007 » Tue Oct 16, 2012 8:45 pm

Hi Harry,

another question, what happens, if video approaches full storage?
Will it
a) not store anything?
b) store to the end of storage and then crash?
c) store to the last full round and continue

Answer c) would be my favorite.

Greetings,
Georg

When memory gets lower than a certain threshold, video recording is stopped. Timing and data recording will continue. The current lap will not get a link to the video as this goes always to the end of the lap (which has no video any more when video has been stopped before).

Ah, thank you, then it was something different, why I lost all the videos when I was in Austria.
Maybe it was a wrong usage, I was very new to it at that time.

On a related subject, in a screenshot in the documenation it shows (video recording) time remaining on-screen, estimated from remaining free memory. I'm sure I've never seen this on my device. Was it removed on the latest version?

The remaining time should be visible once it is below 100 minutes (99:59.99).

I see, thanks. I'll probably never see it then.
