Thread: Record video in background 3GS

  1. #1
    Default Record video in background 3GS
    Is there a way to record video in the background on a 3GS like cycorder? I tried backgrounder but the native video recorder is made to stop recording during interruptions such as a phone call so it just stops recording. Cycorder isn't available on the 3GS...

    These crash:
    cycorder
    videorecorder3g

    These record in the background, but records from the screen instead of camera:
    iVideoCamera
    ShowTime
    Camera Plus Pro
    Qik_Video_Pro
    VideoCamera

    These stop recording when backgrounded:
    Camera
    Camcorder
    VideoSlides

    Sorry, could you elaborate?
    When you say "records your screen instead" do you mean, I could be filming friends at a party, then hit the home button and it would switch over and record what my phone is doing? I'd just like one that runs in the background despite what I'm working on.

    Correct.
    Resolution of the screen recording varied from good to dreadful.
    Sorry about the "s" on "records".
    Last minute changes of grammar often produce typos.

    Keep lookin'.

    Did anybody find anything yet? I'm just hoping someone would create a override in cydia or something for this.
