Overview

scrcast

A fully, featured replacement for screen recording needs backed by Kotlin with the power of Coroutines and Android Jetpack. scrcast is:

  • Easy to use: scrcast's API leverages Kotlin languages features for simplicity, ease of use, and little-to-no boilerplate. Simply configure and record()
  • Modern: scrcast is Kotlin-first and uses modern libraries including Coroutines and Android Jetpack.

Download

scrcast is available on mavenCentral().

Quick Start

scrcast provides a variety of configuration options for capturing, storing, and providing user interactions with your screen recordings.

Configuring

val recorder = ScrCast.use(activity)
recorder.apply {
    // configure options via DSL
    options {
        video {
            maxLengthSecs = 360
        }
        storage {
            directoryName = "scrcast-sample"
        }
        notification {
            title = "Super cool library"
            description = "shh session in progress"
            icon = resources.getDrawable(R.drawable.ic_camcorder, null).toBitmap()
            channel {
                id = "1337"
                name = "Recording Service"
            }
            showStop = true
            showPause = true
            showTimer = true
        }
        moveTaskToBack = false
        startDelayMs = 5_000
    }
}

State

interaction with MediaRecorderis abstracted in a easy to use and manage interface, via explict state-changing accessors.

Start

recorder.record()

Stop

recorder.stopRecording()

Pause

recorder.pause()

Resume

recorder.resume()

Callbacks

State changes are emitted via RecordingCallbacks as a single interface or via a discrete lambda onRecordingStateChange

Completed recording output file is also emittable in RecordingCallbacks via

fun onRecordingFinished(file: File)
