Video recording

Every test session executed on BrowserStack is recorded as it is executed on our remote devices. 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
DesiredCapabilities desiredCapabilities = new DesiredCapabilities();
desiredCapabilities.setCapability("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");
desired_cap = {
	'browserstack.video': 'false'
}
desired_caps = {
    'browserstack.video': 'false'
}

Access video recording from the dashboard

To access the video recording for your test, in the App Automate dashboard, go to your build.

Focused video on App-Automate Session Details Page

Retrieve a video recording URL

You can retrieve video recording URL for any test session using our REST API:

curl -u "YOUR_USERNAME:YOUR_ACCESS_KEY" -X GET "https://api.browserstack.com/app-automate/sessions/<session-id>.json"
Note: If the content played by the application under test is DRM protected, video recording will be blacked out.
