[APP][4.0+][ROOT] SCR Screen Recorder
This is the official SCR Screen Recorder thread.
There are already couple threads scattered on different devices forums but I wanted a central place to gather feedback etc.
SCR Screen Recorder allows you to record great quality screencasts directly from your phone or tablet. It uses hardware accelerated video encoding to achieve best quality screen recording on any device. It's the only video recorder on the market supporting Tegra device including Nexus 7.

(With the Free edition you can record maximum 3 minutes screencasts and the SCR watermark is added to your video. Buy the Pro version to get unlimited screencast length with no watermark.)

I’m getting error message when I start recording, what should I do?
Try changing the resolution or switching between CPU/GPU image transformation mode. Some devices don’t support all settings combinations. If you can’t get any settings to work please tap “Report” button on error dialog and send a full report email including system log.
The recording works fine except the strange colours
Select “Inverted color fix” in SCR Settings.
Video contains some random colors instead of my screen
This is caused by device video encoder crash. It usually can be fixed by changing Resolution.
The video is sideways, how do I rotate it?
Just like default Android Camera app SCR checks the screen orientation when the recording is started and adds orientation metadata to the video file. Some video players (e.g. VLC) ignore orientation metadata and always display video horizontally. YouTube nad default android video player can detect orientation metadata correctly and play vertical videos. If you want a video to use vertical frames instead of rotation metadata select "Vertical frames" in SCR settings. Note that hardware video encoders and video players on many devices don't support vertical frames especially on high resolutions.
I uninstalled SCR but touch indicators don't get removed
Showing touch indicators is an android hidden feature which gets simply enabled by SCR. If you want to get rid of it after uninstalling SCR you can use this
app or go to “Settings” => “Developer options” => “Show touches”.
My phone gets really laggy when I start recording
Phones hardware is not designed to record HD video and play 3D games at the same time so I have to push the limits. There is always going to be some slowdown. You can reduce a lag by reducing resolution and frame rate. Lower frame rate and lower resolution means that your phone needs less power for video encoding and has more spare resources to run other apps and games. If you’r running Android 4.3 try GPU+ image transformation mode which is much faster on some devices.
