Good thing you made this thread finally! I have not had any problems after some updates on my samsung galaxy tab 2 with cm 10.2
And gpu+ is faster for me that normal gpu rendering but cpu rendering is fastest, i don't know why. I don't know why other screen recorders are so slow compared to this but i am glad i found this some months ago.

Also there will be recording app called everplay for android but i don't know when because its gonna take some time to make it possible record without root but its for ios already. When it will be released for android i should record sound too like on ios, so you could get code from them to record sound. But even mic make my tab lag more.

Thumbs up
Love it! Best functioning, and looking, screen recorder out there.
Still I am dieing for the audio recording feature, I know its not easy or even possible but it is the single and only feature this app is missing from perfection.

I'm not too familiar with the new features in Android 4.3. Why can GPU image transformation be faster with 4.3?
I looked on the official page, but i'm still not sure.

The official 4.3 news page says something like this:
Quote:

Android 4.3 builds on the performance improvements already included in Jelly Bean — vsync timing, triple buffering, reduced touch latency, CPU input boost, and hardware-accelerated 2D rendering — and adds new optimizations that make Android even faster.

For a graphics performance boost, the hardware-accelerated 2D renderer now optimizes the stream of drawing commands, transforming it into a more efficient GPU format by rearranging and merging draw operations. For multithreaded processing, the renderer can also now use multithreading across multiple CPU cores to perform certain tasks.

Is the multithreaded processing the additional benefit of using GPU image transformations over using the CPU?

P.S.: btw. I like the app, keep up the good work!

It's not exactly about multithreading. GPU and GPU+ image transformation modes use OpenGL ES 2.0 to process the screen content (scale/rotate/change color format) in contrast to CPU mode which simply copies different color values from one memory buffer to another.

The difference between GPU and GPU+ modes is quite subtlr. GPU+ takes advantege of a new internal API introduced in Android 4.3 which allows to eliminate some inefficient OpenGL operations. This change is not advertised in release notes as it's quite a minor change in an internal API. If every such change was included in the release notes it would quickly grow to a size of a novel My hunch is that this changes are being added to allow some new features of Chromecast in the future... but this is just a speculation.

What happens if you try recording in portrait mode?
Note that some video players ignore rotation metadata included in the video and always display it horizontally. Default Android player and YouTube can handle metadata correctly and display portrait video vertically.

I would agree with another poster, if its ever possible to just record audio output people would make you a god lol.

That and using two programs that use the mic at the same time . i should have known you would be on this site haha.

Also, it seems I get really inconsistent file sizes with only the frame rate setting, like one file is 12.2 mb but is 8 minutes long (vlc says 8.548 fps) and another one is over 800 mb and is 11 minutes long, but has 75 fps from what vlc says. Strange i think

This is expected behavior. File size is proportional to frame rate. At 8fps encoder needs to store 8 screenshots a second, at 75fps 75 screenshots needs to be encoded. So 10 times more screenshots requires around 10 times more storage space.
