  • videoFilters (str) – [iOS only] The FFMPEG video filters to apply. These filters allow to scale, flip, rotate and do many other useful transformations on the source video stream. The format of the property must comply with https://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-filters.html. (Since Appium 1.15)

  • videoScale (str) – [iOS only] The scaling value to apply. Read https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Scaling for possible values. No scale is applied by default. If videoFilters are set then the scale setting is effectively ignored. (Since Appium 1.10.0)

  • pixelFormat (str) – [iOS only] Output pixel format. Run ffmpeg -pix_fmts to list possible values. For Quicktime compatibility, set to “yuv420p” along with videoType: “libx264”. (Since Appium 1.12.0)

  • videoSize (str) – [Android only] The video size of the generated media file. The format is WIDTHxHEIGHT. The default value is the device’s native display resolution (if supported), 1280x720 if not. For best results, use a size supported by your device’s Advanced Video Coding (AVC) encoder.

  • bitRate (int) – [Android only] The video bit rate for the video, in megabits per second. The default value is 4. You can increase the bit rate to improve video quality, but doing so results in larger movie files.

Returns

Base-64 encoded content of the recorded media

if stop_recording_screen isn’t called after previous start_recording_screen. Otherwise returns an empty string.

Return type

bytes

stop_recording_screen(**options: Any) → bytes

Gather the output from the previously started screen recording to a media file.

Keyword Arguments
  • remotePath (str) – The remotePath upload option is the path to the remote location, where the resulting video should be uploaded. The following protocols are supported: http/https (multipart), ftp. Missing value (the default setting) means the content of the resulting file should be encoded as Base64 and passed as the endpoint response value, but an exception will be thrown if the generated media file is too big to fit into the available process memory.

  • user (str) – The name of the user for the remote authentication. Only has an effect if both remotePath and password are set.

  • password (str) – The password for the remote authentication. Only has an effect if both remotePath and user are set.

  • method (str) – The HTTP method name (‘PUT’/’POST’). PUT method is used by default. Only has an effect if remotePath is set.

Returns

Base-64 encoded content of the recorded media file or an empty string

if the file has been successfully uploaded to a remote location (depends on the actual remotePath value).

Return type

bytes
