How to capture video of running Automation scripts on android device?

Hi All

I want to record/take videos of running automation scripts on android device for demo purpose.

currently I am using adb to record my scripts as

adb shell screenrecord /sdcard/example.mp4

But problem with this is i am not able to record more than 2.5 to 3 minutes, I have around 4-5 minutes of running scripts for an end to end scenario.Also it saves video on Mobile device only.

Is there is any other utility/program from which i can record my full length automation execution?

Need your thoughts / inputs for the same.


If you are running Android 5.0 or greater, use az screen recorder. Start the recording before running your automation script and stop it once finished.

I built a CLI tool to do video recording (amongst other things) for iOS and Android. Should work with any framework / language where you can make a system call.

Flick is a great tool was struggling to find a good solution for screen recording that works with Appium. Most of the tools out there work better with browser applications.

Also you can use Quick Time Player where you can record both device and screen recording.
