Screencast captures screenshots and videos of what's displayed in your device screen
This app runs only on rooted devices.
Have you ever wanted to capture a video featuring your personal bests on your favorite Android game? Or a screenshot of your homescreen... or maybe to record a tutorial to show how to make some Android OS tricks. Whatever the purpose, the need is shared: capturing screenshots and videos of what's displayed in your device.
That's what Screencast allows users to do. Using it is as easy as tap on the central home button to start recording. However, there are some parameters you can adjust from settings. Thus, you can set video resolution, video orientation, frames per second (up to 40), timelapse multiplier, record audio (from mic), screenshot format, and many more.
In order to make the most of your device's hardware, you can make a benchmark that will show, for example, maximum frames per second supported. Videos and screenshot taken will be saved on a built-in gallery.
** Does not work on Galaxy Nexus or Tegra 2/3
** Samsung S3: Set recording mode to "High" in settings
** ICS+ devices: Make sure HW Overlay is disabled and "Force GPU Rendering" is enabled from the device's developer options menu
Screencast captures your phone screen at high frame rates into a high quality MPEG4 video with audio. It can also take snapshots of your screen by holding the search key on your phone.
This program includes a gallery to view, play, rename, delete and share your previously recorded videos or screen shots from within the same user interface.
Please contact the developer if you have question or issues, before rating the app low. The developer cannot help you if you only post a review and do not email for support.
You can also hit "Menu" and select "Report a problem" to get support.
**This app complies with the LGPL as it uses libavcodec by FFMPEG for the encoding process. The sources used are from ffmpeg-0.8 release, and compiled without modification.

I very recemend this
This is good but i wish i didn't HAVE to have root for my non rooted devices. But otherwise Good!
This app is great I love it and I don't get no problems with but there are a few bugs but there nothing
Thanks for making this app
It slows my phone down while recording. On play back the video and audio are off. Had it on my HTC Evo 4g and it worked great, but it's not performing well with my HTC One max. I do youtube videos and always list the apps I use to create them. No more free advertising for you screencast. Sprint HTC One max android 4.4.2 Sense 6.
Please sort it out I've used this app before on s3 and worked a perfect now on s4 and don't work at all
Bought this app thinking it would be really handy and come to find out it is completely useless. It only records videos that are just static looking (like when tv tuner is not on a station). My phone is rooted Nexus 5. Please fix this issue as other free apps work such as Rec. Also, would be nice if there was a feature to pause the start of recording so when you hit record it counts down from 10
