In this guide, we will show you a couple of methods to fix the issue of video recording lagging on the Xiaomi 12T Pro. This flagship-level offering from the Chinese OEM beholds a triple rear camera setup with the 200MP wide camera being the talk of the town. Likewise, it could even record 8K videos, which is something that not many could claim. However, these are usually the extreme use case scenarios, as of now, it isn’t even able to carry out the basic recordings.
In this regard, numerous users have voiced their concerns that the video recording is continuously lagging on their Xiaomi 12T Pro. Let alone 8K, even 1080P and 720P aren’t working along the expected lines. Switching the video decoder to H.265 and opting for High-Performance Mode didn’t do any favor either. What is even more concerning to note is that the issue isn’t only with stock MIUI 14, it has also been reported on Xiaomi EU ROM and EliteROM.
Moreover, let alone the stock camera app, even the Google Camera [GCam] is suffering the same fate. All this confirms that the issue is with the thirteenth iteration of the OS released by Xiaomi [EU and custom Elite are also MIUI-based]. So until they fix it in the subsequent next update, you could refer to the below-listed workarounds that should help you address this issue right away.
