I view DCT using Chrome browser (Pixel, Android 9). The videos just play within the browser, and yes I can hear the rock music :)
HA! So it's me then... stupid Motorola... still doesn't explain why RTCG does, and DCT doesn't... don't break your head on it, it's not a big deal, just wondering.

So, I've come to a few conclusions:

Dashcam:

1) works OK, IF you do NOT use 60 fps for night recording, 30 fps is ok and better for night recording.



Hatcam:

2) if you use a self adhesive velcro strip (hatcam), it will come off after some time because even in 30 fps it gets pretty hot. I harnassed it with some steel wire... Big disadvantage is the recording time. I always use an external battery, but that needs cable.... :( so it's never a fully satisfying solution.....


Motorcycle

3) use it as you like, 60 fps OK if you put it in a place with air flow, but please still use the heatsink. You could even stick a few little extra heatsinks for more reduction.

Take it off if you park your machine, for obvious reasons, stealing and heat de velopment if it's hot out.

Mobius Mini and supercap? Anyone tried it before?

I didn't want to wait for it, and took of the cable and connector from the battery that has swollen up like a Michelin man, and soldered them to a Mobius 1 supercap.

Guess what, it records up to ALMOST the very last second.... :D

Date and time kept as well, don't know for how long though...... yet.... :unsure:

I haven't calculated, but counting down from 5 to 0 the image was saved up to where I said 1 in full .... so I'm guessing half a second missing or so.

Now, anyone saying it wont work, shut up NOW. Hahaha..... :censored:

It doesn't fit the housing of course, but who cares.....!!!

Anyone contact with the mobius team to ask for one that fits?
