Jake ... the same here in Firefox (or was it safari this morning ... !? )... a bit choppy. but as I said ... this could be a software thing

I get stutter on VLC, no stutter but huge pixelation with Quicktime and it plays fine with windows media player of all things. Can we get an option of recording in .H264 MP4 files instead of only .mov? It might fix things.

We need H.265

Isn't the new Mobius v2 coming out with something like that? Looking forward to it.

Anyways, I know there's no way it's $1. What is the real price ?

I don't understand, is this $1 is for buying coupon, buying stock exchange or buying a real RUNCAM 2?

It's $1 for a coupon and entry to win the Runcam 2.

The Xiaomi Yi looks the best to me. The Colors of the RunCam 2 look wrong.

Very interested, does it have anything simular to the gopro superview? It's really never going to be compatible without 60fps and a superview type format

So here is my first test session with the new RunCam2.

Battery at 85% charged lasted about 40 minutes but missed my last and best pack/session of the day.

Was a bit hot by the end running back to back packs (4 in total).

Sound recording isn't that great, they need to work on that.

The battery will be updated with the official version.

I have a feeling the bitrate of all runcams is the biggest issue.
There has to be a reason why alternatives look better on youtube. Higher bitrate would be one.

If you are into sharing vids, it would appear that there is zero difference between the runcam 1&2 when it concerns image quality. They look virtually identical.

As a comparison, look at the typical gopro footage shared on youtube.

@runcam, if you have some codec settings that could help optimize vids for youtube....
