Android Screen Recording

I am developing an Android app for class. Every night after I am done working with the code, I like to send my team a short video on the development progress thus far. ADB has decent screen recording functionality built in.

C:\Users\ryan>cd^ C:\apps\sdk\platform-tools

C:\apps\sdk\platform-tools>adb.exe shell screenrecord --bit-rate 8000000 --time-
limit 60 /sdcard/odin-app.mp4

You can read about the switches too.

Updated: I also use this frequently on the Mac with ADB as well. It’s the same, but it’s handy to have anyway.

ryans-mba:~ ryanrampersad$  adb shell screenrecord --bit-rate 8000000 --time-limit 60 /sdcard/odin-app.mp4

After these videos are done recording, I like using ES File Explorer to transfer them for uploading rather than using ADB file transfer.
