Was probably your search terms. It can be frustrating doing searches when you don't get the right terms.
"Video recorder" popped up lots of threads and posts, but not as you say, "video capture." http://www.blackberryforums.com/sear...archid=1609884
What has been talked about is whether or not the Pearl as configured can support video recording.
If it can, then we assume RIM or some third party will come out with an application to turn the camera into a video recorder.
As to why RIM did not include such, I speculated that maybe a recording program would take up too much space on the 44MB of space the Pearl has for the operating system, etc.
As configured, the Pearl only gives users about 20MB of space for files, etc. The Pearl is just like Windows, if you fill up a hard disk, the system slows way down. On the Pearl I imagine it's the same thing. That is why the Pearl does not allow one to put larger than about 2.8MB files on to the device memory.
So, I'm not sure what will happen. If it's a space limitation issue, maybe RIM will have to come out with a 128MB version of the Pearl. Or maybe they can figure out a way for programs to run off a MicroSD chip.
Oh well..... I digress.
