Hi Chetan,

As far as I know there is no direct way to grab video from emulator. We can try another way to make it possible (just a guess), by capturing images from camera at particular interval (may be a fractions of seconds) and save all those image files on external/internal media and send them all to server and delete all temp images. On server side we can provide a logic to embed those all images in video.

Hey dude this is just a guess, I have never implemented it. One of my friend developed a code to grab images and then convert it to video with Java. He had to handle around 440 images per minute and clarity of that video was also poor.

Anyways good luck bro.

Edit - refer this link, i just Googled it.

Thanks & Regards

If the video quality is poor then I will not prefer this option .
Thanks for your reply.

Hi Chetan,

Video clarity was poor due to low image resolution and high video resolution. He made it for computers, here its totally different thing. Try your luck with low resolution sized images.

Thanks & Regards
