I'm trying to develop a video capture application on my Dev Alpha - but all camera functions stop working after a short period of time. If the camera is on for any length of time the screen the display from camera application goes black. I can minimize the application and everthing eslse is fine. I have not been able to get any other camera application (eg. FaceFilter from BlackBerry Jam Americas) to work. I notice that at the best of time quadrants of the video go blotchy. All other apllications work fine. Is this a problem with my Dev Alpha or is this just an SDK issue?

This sounds like a bug or possible hardware issue. Is this on a Dev Alpha A or B? Have you tried reloading the software from the Dev Alpha page? https://developer.blackberry.com/devzone/blackberr

Haven't reinstalled the 9.388 as I have a lot of a sample apps uploaded to the phone and I like to view the samples after inspecting the code.
I have a Dev Alpha.
If it should work I'll go ahead and reload it.
I saw a mention in the forums something about a16:9 ratio bug (vs 4:3 ratio) in the camera app so I changed that setting and my camera app now seems to run ok. So I wonder if its a bug.
