Getting "Is screenrecord utility available and operational on the device under test? " on Google Pixel

I’m trying to capture screen recording of automation running through Appium using below code.

final BaseStartScreenRecordingOptions startScreenRecordingOptions = new AndroidStartScreenRecordingOptions()
try {
            ((CanRecordScreen) driver).startRecordingScreen(startScreenRecordingOptions);
  "[VIDEO_RECORDING] Video recording started with options : %s", ReflectionToStringBuilder.toString(startScreenRecordingOptions));
} catch (final Exception e) {
            log.error("[VIDEO_RECORDING] Start Video Recording operation failed with error : %s",e.getMessage());

This code was working fine till couple of days ago and suddenly started throwing below error on real devices.

org.openqa.selenium.WebDriverException: An unknown server-side error occurred while processing the command. Original error: The expected screen record file '/sdcard/2f4a4590.mp4' does not exist after 5000ms. Is screenrecord utility available and operational on the device under test?

I tested by running the ADB commands directly on the device and it works just fine.

adb -P 5037 -s <UDID> shell screenrecord --size 1280x720 --time-limit 10 --bugreport /sdcard/test.mp4

adb -P 5037 -s <UDID> shell "[ -e '/sdcard/test.mp4' ] && echo __PASS__"

Tested the same on different device Samsung S9 and it works fine too.

Environment Info :

  • Appium Version : 2.1.3
  • Appium uiautomator2 driver version : 2.32.1
  • Appium Java Client Version :
  • Impacted Devices : Google Pixel 7, Android 13
  • Working Devices : Samsung S9, Android 10

Not sure if something changed from Appium/ADB/Android side causing issues ? Any insights on this would be helpful.
