Wouldn't a screen recording app for Sailfish be useful to the community in order to demonstrate UI bugs etc? Is such an app complicated to make?

There is already a screenshot application in the store with good features. If you're thinking about video capture app, I doubt it would be too hard to do.

I agree the Screenshot app for Sailfish has everything you wish for in a screenshot app, but as you suspected I am definitely thinking of a video capture app as such an app would be much more useful for demonstrating bugs etc!

@parasemic I hope you are right about it not being hard to do! btw it seems that similar android apps either require root access or having the phone connected to a computer while recording for some reason. Do you know if that means it's probably the same on Jolla?

I know that thread is old but I'm in need for a screen recording (video) app, too. So any news?

@gukke : anyway, the Screenshot app stop to work with Sailfish OS For a curious question of security. If you want to make a screenshot, you must play with sound buttons (for my xa2 "click between the two buttons").
