AS HAPPY AS I AM with my Nokia N8, I'm disappointed to discover Qik is not optimised for use on it. This means that I cannot control Qik recordings on the N8 as well as I can on the Nokia N86. I cannot set a description of a clip and Qik's Symbian S60 software seems to ignore A-GPS so there's a lack of precise geolocation when using Qik on the N8. However, the biggest issue is with multi-tasking. If a previously-running process does not give way to Qik, it's possible to freeze up the handset in the middle of a Qik clip. I'm normally careful how I run Qik and I usually terminate all processes before making a live recording. However, sometimes Pixelpipe just fires up and ruins my best-laid plans. I know I cannot shoot an 640x352 resolution recording with the camera upstreaming "best quality" while Pixelpipe is also using bandwidth. When I do that, my N8 crashes every time.
I've started a Flickr photoset about and with the N8. I am Topgold on Qik.
