2. Best Practice

The app is optimized for fast recording
If you want to optimize for relaiability and performance please follow this video guide:


Q : How can I know recording started - if the screen is off?
A : Activate the Vibrate function. The phone will vibrate when you press the Volume Up. Pressing again on the Volume Up will restart recording.

Q : Where are my videos saved?

A : On the App - navigate on the left panel to Gallery

Q : Is Root needed?
A : No. Root is NOT required.

Q: Why does recording stop after ~ 30 minutes?
A: Defined by Android system, 4 Gigabytes limitation. check out howto guides step 9. BVR Ultimate video recording stops after 4GB reached.

Q: The phone still makes shutter sound when starts and finish recording.
A: Check our howto guides step 8. Can I mute the Shutter sound when recording starts?

Q: If my phone stopped recording because the battery was drained, can I recover the video?
A: Video file is corrupt after phone ran out battery. Try splitting the video recording next time to avoid this problem.

Q : Does this app consume allot of battery?
A : my app consumes as little power as can be. while not recording - it is a simple empty service that run in the background.
while recording - it takes less then normal camera because it uses no preview(display is the main power consumption while recording).
Best practice for power consumption :
make sure to run the Setting:Permission wizard to disable battery optimization. you can set it from Settings:Special features:by pass optimization level: 
  • a. none - battery consumption optimized. use it if you do not use the volume button to start/stop recording.
  • b. normal - you care about volume button functionality but not so much.
  • c. aggressive - functionality of the volume button will be optimized. when using this level - if the audio of the recording has a small background noise - Setting:advanced:Set noise reduction: enabled.
