Is there a way of doing screen recordings on the Dev Alpha Screen?
Is there a way I can record whats happening on the dev alpha, but instead of holding a shaky camera in front of the phone, use a built in function of some sort? Kind of like how you can take screenshots by holding down the volume up and volume down button, but to record a video instead.

It's too bad there isn't this function built-in. My demo video of my app taken with my 9800's camera was... crappy.

Just FYI, this is an open feature request which they've expressed an interest in and were considering. It's a possibility for one of the unleaked features... and even if we don't see it at launch, I would expect it to come along over the next half year or so. (Educated guess?)

if you have a TV card on a pc than can capture HDMI, you can record video pretty easily

The best I could do was indeed put it onto a bigger screen and try to record that screen instead. Though the quality is not as good since I don't have a very good camera either.
Oh well. Was hoping to making a video of the Dev Alpha but I guess I'm going to try and figure out something else.

Anyway, I'm sure it will come... the use cases are simply too compelling and the technical issues too minor for them not to do it some time soon, even if it's not there for us at launch. Maybe 10.1 in that case...
Edit: Ah, I think you figured that the screen view on the right was actually showing what Jeff typed in the middle panel? Unfortunately what we see there isn't synchronized perfectly with what he's doing. As he's starting to type, you can see a moment where his thumb isn't moving, but there are still keys being typed on the keyboard. Now, maybe they simply misaligned the two sequences, or maybe they didn't. I don't have time to compare that closely, but I think it's more likely right now that it was simply done separately with a regular HDMI output technique for recording.

They probably filmed Jeff first the video in the center, then filmed separately the One on the Left and Right and then combined them in some program to make it look like it was filmed in one shot.I wait for the future...to COME back to BlackBerry!

Definitely would need to have a computer with HDMI input, or a DVD recorder with HDMI input. Other then that, it's just recording the screen with a video camera. But at least there is the HDMI option. Not many phones have that.RuneCryption - Unique memory game for PlayBook & BB10, now "Built for BlackBerry".
