How do I disable the 'click' sound on the camera app?
If the phone isn't in silent mode, taking a picture using the stock camera application always plays a "shutter" sound. Is there a way to turn the sound off?
I'm using stock Android 2.2 on a Nexus One.
I'm on android 2.1 and am on a Samsung so this may not be exactly the same for you. To disable the shutter sound I launch the camera then (with the camera in landscape mode):
I located the audio file for the camera shutter: /system/media/audio/ui/camera_click.ogg. Removing or renaming the file (requires root access?) should stop the sound from being played.
If the stock camera doesn't provide you the option how about simply downloading another camera software that allows you to remove the shutter sound. (I'm on HTC Hero with sense and it has the option)
The camera preference or system preference should have this setting, may be you can try to find?
Now when you use the Camera app, the shutter will be silent.
Note that Ring Toggle affects everything else as well (i.e. incoming call, email, SMS, etc)
