Capturing a video of your tablet’s screen is a question that we often encounter. Right now, we’re still sort of in the “Wild Wild West” as far as capturing the screen of your tablet is concerned (the API of the popular mobile OS’s, which is how applications “talk” to the operating system, do not presently allow for screen video capture). However, there are some methods currently available that, while not exactly simple, do offer a good result in the end. The video below outlines one of these methods, and while it was made last summer, the information is still relevant.
