Video recording

Every test executed on BrowserStack is recorded as it is executed on our remote machine. Video recordings are particularly helpful whenever a test fails as they help you retrace the steps which led to the failure. You can download or view the video logs in full-screen mode from the dashboard.

Video is enabled by default. To disable the video, use the browserstack.video capability

Capability Description Video
browserstack.video Enable/Disable video recording of your test true, false
Default: true
desired_caps = {
    'browserstack.video': 'false'
}
DesiredCapabilities desiredCapabilities = new DesiredCapabilities();
desiredCapabilities.setCapability("browserstack.video", "false");
desired_cap = {
	'browserstack.video': 'false'
}
var capabilities = {
	'browserstack.video': 'false',
}
DesiredCapabilities capability = new DesiredCapabilities();
capability.SetCapability("browserstack.video", "false");
$capabilities = new DesiredCapabilities();
$capabilities->setCapability("browserstack.video", "false");
