Does UserMedia records screen on iOS?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Tue Jan 12, 2016 8:43 pm

Hi,
I'm developing an iOS game, in that I want a feature of recording users' screen. I found that UserMedia plugin can be used for screen recording. There is also an example provided in C2. That example says screen could be possible only on Firefox but when I run it on any browser (even on Firefox), I get a message saying "Screen recording doesn't support, try Firefox'.

My question is, Does C2 supports screen recording. If yes, does it support on iOS?

Please help.

For some reason, when running html5 applications in mobile devices' browsers, the UserMedia plugin always answers NO to "Supports user media" condition. It doesn't matter which browser you use, the condition is always false, so it seems "impossible" to use UserMedia features in mobile devices.

However, this can be solved by exporting the project as a native app with cordova. If you do so, the UserMedia works well.

If you just want to record the whole screen, there is another alternative to UserMedia. You could use the Snapshot Canvas system action https://www.scirra.com/manual/125/system-actions capturing a screen shot every 0.X seconds.
