Google’s Chrome OS will apparently be getting native video recording through the camera app all across the range of compatible devices, according to an entry in the Chromium Code Review. The code in question actually pertains to enabling hardware support for certain performance-boosting features that work in conjunction with Chrome OS’ normal camera trappings. So long as a Chromebook has MediaRecorder APIs and can use hardware-based VEA, it should be able to achieve video recording at about 30 frames per second. Obviously, this figure can vary depending on many variables regarding the device in question, such as its camera, processor, amount of RAM, and type of storage, among other things.
