Testing video off the TV with the Palm Pre

Posted By on March 2, 2010

Palm Pre Video capture testCuriosity had me pondering just how well the Palm Pre could capture video directly off of an HD Plasma television broadcast? Not too bad it turns out, considering up until webOS 1.4 update was implemented this past weekend that the diminutive smartphone couldn’t even shoot video.

When the update was first installed on my phone, I tried the YouTube update, then posted from email to Posterous directly and now will try embedding a clip as a flash video to the blog below … and maybe I’ll give Facebook option a try, even though I don’t use it much. The non-streaming .mov clip is download by clicking the above photo.
