Bug Description

While recording at a sports event a few days ago, I received an incoming call. I declined to take the call, but the recording had stopped all the same, and I lost the most important few seconds of the race.

The desired behavior, if I could choose, would be to let the phone continue recording while the user decides whether to accept the call.

Then, if the user declines the call, continue recording and switch back to the camera app (no interruptions in the recording), but

if the user accepts the call, interrupt the recording and take the call instead.

Best regards,

Thanks for filing this.

The suggestion discussed on the mailing list sounded best to me.

Video continues filming is until the call is accepted. If the notification is ignored or dismissed, the filming isn't interrupted.
