I can't start screen recording on Chinese devices oppo,huawei

Hello everyone,

I start and stop screen recording with the code below, but I get this error on Chinese phones such as oppo and huawei.

It returns this as an error. : .

openqa.selenium.WebDriverException: An unknown server-side error occurred while processing the command. Original error: The expected screen record file ‘/sdcard/70454702.mp4’ does not exist after 5000ms. Is screenrecord utility available and operational on the device under test?

Thanks for help.

My code ,

@Aleksei do you have any idea sir. Thanks

Problem not in appium but in phones that use custom Android where command to record screen just absent.

To check use adb command (same using appium)

adb shell screenrecord
