Appium 1.8.0 Release

1.6.1 is a updated appium. 1.6.1 is a release version and 1.8.0 is appium version both are same

Any Idea on downgrading the Appium version so that i can run my tests without errors.

Yes, You can run on appium 1.7.2 version but iOS 11 will not work on it .


Are those topics described anywhere else?

It sounds really interesting but it would be really great to know what exactly is improved. It’d be nice to know if I have to initiate migration from 1.7.2 to 1.8.0

How can I achieve the migration from 1.8 to 1.7.2. Any reference you got Please Let me know.Thanks!

just run
1.npm uninstall -g appium
2. npm install -g [email protected]

Hi ,

Has someone managed to record iOS real device execution through appium ?

I did manage to start the recording and to stop it , but when it being converted from base64 format to file with mp4 format , the file cannot be opened (getting corrupted error) - this does work for Android tough.


No I see that the problem is with ffmpeg package
