I tested the Screencast Video Recorder app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ms.screencast) on my Galaxy S3. I had poor results until I read a suggestion to disable hardware overlays in the developer options. I also enabled the “show touches” option to show pinches and zooms. Root access is required.
00:04 Screencast settings used [High. 30 frames per second.]
00:17 If you have choppy screencasts, go to SETTINGS, DEVELOPER OPTIONS, DISABLE HARDWARE OVERLAYS
01:06 To show panning and pinching gestures in your screencast, go to INPUT, SHOW TOUCHES. I prefer this over Screencast’s pointer icons.
01:22 Native Camera App
02:10 Opera Classic Browser [Zooming in and out.]
04:20 ES Media Player [Testing video response & recording quality.]
06:15 YouTube App [Testing recording quality.]
08:28 Torque [Great program. One could probably make a Screencast of the video! Torque’s video export tool is awful.]
11:00 S Memo [Just doodling]
12:19 OfficeSuite [Just opened the program.]
13:30 YouVersion Bible App [Just opened the program.]
14:24 Google Earth [I’ve got the whole world in my hands! And between my pinch-and-zoom-gesturing fingers. Houston, Texas.]
17:47 Google Earth: Pegman!
18:40 Google Earth: Rice University Academic Quad & Willy’s Statue
Tested screen recording of:
– screen brightness
– video resolution and quality
I had to rotate video after I uploaded it to YouTube for it to properly display in landscape mode.
