    Hi there,

    How can I record a video on my z10 with my screen off? I thought I use to be able to do it but if my screen turns off the video stops recording.

    Thanks

    Not sure why you would want to record video with the screen off anyway, surely you need to see what you are recording?

    Try some dashcam apps to see if it works for you.

    Make sure you're girlfriend or wife know what you're doing. That's the only reason why someone would want to record with the screen off

    I think a 3rd party app had a Dark Screen mode for time lapse to save the battery. But it does not appear available for 10.3.1 devices, I think.

    Information is power!

    Or is that knowledge?

    Thanks for the suggestions. I haven't found a solid solution yet. I tried a dash cam app but it kept crashing with the screen off.

    As for reasoning, if I needed to record a situation...mostly for the sake of recording, and I do not care with what's in the video but care more that the video was taken (while doing so discreetly). For example. You may have seen a lot of videos online of cops trying to destroy video evidence or if they see someone recording they could get aggressive. With the screen off, they would not be able to see I was recording. This of course is just one possible scenario. But you get the idea.

    Edit: forgot to mention, if I plan on recording long having the screen off is a real battery saver.

    Save battery, oh master thinker. If he's not watching the screen (ie, it's on tripod and he's in front of camera), it doesn't need to be on.

    Unless it's hidden or just happens to be perched up somewhere as the girl picks the money off the bedside counter & the clock starts ticking.

    Don't be flattered, Stamper tells me everything.

    You can try Silent Camera here

    https://appworld.blackberry.com/webs...ntent/20078681

    It is not possible to record or take picture when the screen is off.

    Silent Camera will hide the view finder. You can control how dark to make the view finder. Works both recording videos and taking pictures.
