Video recording

Every test run on the BrowserStack is recorded exactly as it is executed on remote device. This feature is particularly helpful whenever a test fails - it helps you see the entire test in action. You can access these videos from the App Automate dashboard. You can also download the videos from the dashboard or retrieve a link to download the video using our REST API.

Video logs are enabled by default. Note that video recording slightly increases the text execution time. To disable video recording, you need to set the video parameter to false in the REST API request to start Espresso test execution.

curl -u "YOUR_USERNAME:YOUR_ACCESS_KEY" \
