If you develop for Android you might want to be able to capture your screen to show a bug or the differences between two things and ask for suggestions.
So to do so we need
adb installed and configured.
First of all make sure that adb sees your device:
Then you can launch the recording session:
adb shell screenrecord /sdcard/android-video-capture.mp4
adb shell screenrecord --help Usage: screenrecord [options]
Android screenrecord v1.2. Records the device's display to a .mp4 file. Options: --size WIDTHxHEIGHT Set the video size, e.g. "1280x720". Default is the device's main display resolution (if supported), 1280x720 if not. For best results, use a size supported by the AVC encoder. --bit-rate RATE Set the video bit rate, in bits per second. Value may be specified as bits or megabits, e.g. '4000000' is equivalent to '4M'. Default 4Mbps. --bugreport Add additional information, such as a timestamp overlay, that is helpful in videos captured to illustrate bugs. --time-limit TIME Set the maximum recording time, in seconds. Default / maximum is 180. --verbose Display interesting information on stdout. --help Show this message. Recording continues until Ctrl-C is hit or the time limit is reached.
