    Default [New Feature: Touch Indicator] Screencast Video Recorder

    Market Link:https://market.android.com/details?id=com.ms.screencast

    Purpose of this thread:
    This thread will serve as one-stop-shop for all bug reports, feature requests and general questions and inquiries.

    Table of contents:

    1. What is Screencast Video Recorder
    2. Features
    3. Known bugs/issues
    4. Requested features
    5. Latest release notes


    What is Screencast Video Recorder:
    Screencast Video Recorder is a "demonstration" tool for devices running Android 2.2+. SVR can record the device's screen and encode it into an MPEG4 video, as well as taking screenshots in JPEG, BMP or PNG formats. There are two versions of SVR in the market, a free and a paid version.
    Screencast is available on Google's Android Market and AndroidPIT's App Center.

    Features:
    • Video Screen Capture
    • Live narration while recording
    • Screenshots
    • Gallery Interface
    • Benchmark Tool
    • Home screen widgets


    Known Bugs/Issues:
    • Tegra 2 devices: This is not really a bug, but an inherit problem with Tegra 2 devices. Screencast is built using NEON instruction set for the most part, and as such, requires a device that has NEON capability. Nvidia decided to not include NEON support in their Tegra 2 devices.
    • Video cannot be played: (Workaround: Use MoboPlayer to play your recordings)
      This is a problem with native video players on some devices. Some video players can only play video files with standard sizes/dimensions. Screencast recordings inherit the device's screen dimensions at High quality setting, and half the dimensions at Normal quality setting.
      Certain video players, like MoboPlayer, can play any video file and do not make assumptions about the video's dimensions.
    • Recorded videos do not appear in SVR's Gallery: This is an intermittent bug and happens rarely, a fix is on the way.
    • Application Install Error/Corrupt Settings: This happens if SVR was moved to external storage. Right now SVR can only be installed on the internal memory, and will not function properly otherwise. In case it was moved to external storage, it is necessary to uninstall first then re-install from the market.


    Requested features:

    • Install to SD
    • Record system audio
    • Option to change default save folder


    Latest release notes:
    New feature announcement: Time-lapse recording (v2.9)

    Timelapse allows you to record lengthy illustrations into a time-compressed video.
    Scenarios where this mode would be desirable:
    • Record yourself speed paiting/drawing on your phone or tablet.
    • Can beat a game in 40mins? Record it all into a 10min video.
    • Record up to 15hours of activity into a 1 hour video.


    Here is an artist beta testing this new feature:

    Seems to be a great app. Unfortunately I have an LG Optimus 2x (Tegra2), so it does not work.

    I will test it with my Milestone next weekend.

    I have an feature request.

    Would be possible to create a streaming link instead of recording, so I can see my phone from any player/web browser in my network?

    I am asking this because I want to mirror my device screen to my TV. I think ask for DLNA support would be too much, so the requst is for streaming video to a link in the network.

    Thanks.

    This was one of the features I wanted in SVR back in the design/beta phase. However, it got dropped because there seemed to be very little user interest in it.

    This app is AWESOME! It doesn't like my HP TouchPad with CM7 though. When the phone is in Landscape, it still records in Portrait. It's ok, because it's just Alpha and it could be an issue with the rom. (It uploaded, and you had to break your neck to see it. But youtube lets you "rotate" your videos, so that's what I did so that people didn't have to turn their monitors sideways to see it)

    What happens if you force the video to an orientation from the Settings menu (Rotate Left/Right)?

    Hello Mediasolutions,

    Love the app so far, I need to make edits on the computer and publish the video in the same resolution. Do you know how to have this done? I have tried everything that I can think of.

    Thank you.

    Only gripe I really had was the fact that I couldn't record on screen video with it. Like I was trying to use it to record my nephew on qik but it just showed a black screen after I recorded it.

    There is a secure area in memory where the video players can play DRMed video files. Screencast does not attempt to record from there for obvious reasons. Some video players use that memory for any kind of video file, and apparently Qik uses it too, maybe for privacy reasons.

    The files are stored on your sdcard in "Screencast" directory. Assuming your video dimensions are standard (see FAQs in the first post), or you are using a video editing software which can read both standard and non-standard video dimensions, then you should have no problems making edits.

    There are a few snags which prevent Screencast from working on Tegra 2 devices. The exclusion of NEON is one, the other being the non-standard way Nvidia manage their video framebuffer (the memory region which stores the pixels to be displayed).
    This makes supporting Tegra2 devices a project of itself, but even then recording will be limited to less than 10 frames per second. NEON, for encoding (and decoding), means 5x-16x faster processing.

    I understand that, however when I try to upload the video to a blog post on a wordpress. Could you direct me to some of the tools you use to edit/play the videos?

    What happens when you try to upload?

    I cannot get the video to play, and when I go into PowerDirector I can not edit the video. It just shows a black screen. Could you show us all an example of an edited Screencast video and upload it? I think that would be invaluable and really help us all out. Thank you!

    Email me a sample video so I can check it out. Video editing works fine for me, I use PiTiVi on Ubuntu. I think it may have to do with your video (and phone screen) dimensions.

    Here's your sample video edited and uploaded. Make sure you have MPEG4 codecs installed, other than that I do not know why your editing software cannot open the files.

    What is the 50% discount on the app? And the app has stopped working for me. It used to work fine till a few days ago. Now it gets stuck on, "Waiting for service...". I even sent you a report email.

    I need a beta test group to help test out new features and improvements to Screencast. Please send me a PM with your phone model and ROM installed if interested.

    Default Re: [Beta Testers Needed] Screencast Video Recorder

    very interested in beta testing. however, the tegra incompatibility is a major hindrance as 75% of the tablets out this year are tegra 2. I've been eying the Asus transformer prime as my first tablet purchase for a variety of reasons. basically i'm interested in screencasting field drawing sessions using autodesks Sketchbook mobile with a capacitive stylus by wacom. I'll buy the stable release if screencast tomorrow, and can show you what I'm thinking about over the weekend.

    I'm working from an LG esteem running 2.3.4

    i'd really like to find a tablet that has enough power to manage Sketchbook pro (for tablets only), and can run this program, its so important to me, I'm letting hardware compatibility with this app govern my tablet purchase. so if you happen to have a list of tablets that it will run on, or tablets you'd like to make it work for, I'm happy to beta test for you.

    peace,

    -C

    I will be picking up the Transformer Prime as soon as I can to add compatibility (if any is needed). How does the LG work with Screencast? Have you at least tried the demo?
    Please send me a PM with your gmail account so I can add you to the beta testers mailing list.
