Android Screen Recording: How to record your Android screen (2 Ways!)


one question I get asked all the time is how can I record the screen on my Android device in this video I'm going to show you two ways you can do it the first is using your Mac or your PC and the second is using your Android device [Music] hey it's Justin brownie from primal video we released a ton of content to help you get better results with videos faster if you're new here then make sure you click that big subscribe button and all the links to everything that we're going to cover in this video you can find linked in the description below okay so jumping straight into recording your Android device screen the first way that we're going to show you is with some software that works on both Mac and PC and the second way we're going to show you is just using your device so you no need for a PC or Mac for the second method so starting off with the first method the piece of software that you're going to need is called reflector 2 and it sells for $14.

99 on available as well so download reflected 2 and install it on either your Mac or PC next up we need to make sure that both your computer and your Android device are on the same Wi-Fi network and you will need the Google home app installed on your device so to get started open up the Google home app click up on settings and choose cast screen audio and then select your computer now you will see your phone screen has been shared over to your computer now before you hit that record button to start recording your screen it's a good idea to jump into the settings and to check your video recording settings so click on settings go down to preferences and then go across to recording and in here you've got the option to choose your recording resolution so you got the options of 4k 1080p 720p and 480p now if you want the highest quality then choose 4k but I'd suggest not going less than 1080p and there's a lot of devices at the moment still aren't 4k you'll probably find that 1080p will be the best choice here under recording quality you can pick very high high medium low or very low and I'd recommend that you leave this at very high and you can also choose your recording frames per second or the frame rate of the video you're going to be recording in most cases you want to leave this to 30 but if you're going to be recording gaming videos then you may want to try a 60 and see if that gives you a better result so we'll leave that here at 30 then it's just a matter of pressing record and recording your video once you're done press the stop recording button and then choose where you want to save the file ok so that's how you can record your Android device screen using your Mac or your PC and using the software reflected now we're gonna jump into how you can record your phone screen of your device screen using just the device itself now for this you'll need an app called do recorder or do you recorder and it's free in the Android Play Store so essentially how this app works is when you open the app you'll get a little record button that sits off to the side on your screen on top of any app that you've got open when you tap on that icon a little menu appears and you've got the choice of starting your recording open up settings enable or disable your phone's camera and to take a screenshot so before you press the record button to start recording your screen press the Settings button which is the little four squares come across to settings and in here you can choose your video resolution so once again I recommend not going less than 1080p for your screen recording but if you do have higher options and you want to have a higher quality video then you can select a higher resolution so I'll select 1080p and just below that you can also adjust your video quality which is the video bitrate now if you really want the best quality recording you can get from your device then pick the highest megabits per second that's available for your device you can see here that we've got 12 that we could pick and then the entire video is locked down and capturing at 12 megabits per second but that'll also make a huge video file but in the case of most screen recordings I'd recommend you leave this at Auto because it would automatically adjust depending on what you're actually doing with your phone while you're recording so we'll leave that on auto and once again we've also got control over our frames per second so what I recommend here is that you don't leave this on auto and that you lock down your frame rate to 30 frames per second for most standard screen recording or if you're going to be recording gaming then pick 60 if it after a smoother video now there's a heap of other settings in here that aren't critical but they're definitely worth looking at or at least knowing that you've got these options available to you like you can turn on or off audio recording you can show the touch marks on your screen so that later when you're watching back you can see where you've pressed on your screen and you can also select where you actually want the video saved so heap of options in there we're just covering the critical ones to get you the best results so we'll go back out of this now and we'll tap on the recorder icon on the side and we will select camera just to show you what that looks like so you can actually record your phone screen and have your camera recording at the same time you can also reposition and move around and scale up and down the video as well so you've got quite a bit of power in here to create some really awesome screen captures when you're ready to record select back on the camera icon and press record it will do a quick count down from 3 seconds and then your screen is recording now while you're recording that little icon disappears so it's not going to be in your actual recording so just stop the recording you just need to swipe down into your notifications area and hit stop and there's one other feature in here that's definitely worth a mention once you've finished your screen recording click back on that camera icon and open up settings now if you come across to the tools page you'll see in here that you can edit your video you can merge videos together you can transfer your recording to another device or computer on the same Wi-Fi network you can stitch your images blow your images and crop your images all from within this one app so that's pretty cool so there's two ways that you can record your Android device screen if you found this video helpful make sure
