Android application which records movies silently in background. You can record while browsing web pages, playing game, using navigation or even with screen turned off. Simply press application icon and continue using your phone.
Unfortunately on some devices it is not possible to disable shutter sound. In some counties legal obligations forced device manfactures to play sound even if all devices' sounds are disabled.
On some devices front camera returns wrong information regarding it's rotation. That manifest itself with videos being rotated 90 or 180 degrees. To fix it, set proper rotation in 'Recording rotation' in 'HVC Settings'.
This problem appears most frequently on Nexus 4 and Nexus 7. If movies are not visible after connecting your device to a computer please restart your phone or tablet. More technical information about this problem can be found here and here.
To make file smaller please decrease video quailty. To do this please check if you have Hidden Video Camera in version at least 1.5.1. If not please update it first. Then go to settings and choose "video quality" option.
Make a test: record a movie with screen turned on, then record another movie with screen turned off. If the one recorded with screen turned off cannot be played it means that your device is not able to record movies without screen being turned on.
This problem will appear on devices which have both internal memory and SD card slot. Unfortunately
Android system provides straightforward access to one memory only (it is called primary storage). It is up to
device's manfactuler to decide which memory is primary (and in most cases it is an internal memory). Unfortunately there is no easy way to get to secondary storage (and very often this is SD card).
However Hidden Video Camera allows to manualy set movie's directory path so if the user knows what is secondary storage path is should be possible to record movies directly to SD card. Path can be set in Settings -> Movies directory -> Directory path (by default filled in with path to primary storage)
If you are not sure what is the path to secondary storage then:
This problem is almost always connected with the way device's memory is formatted. If it was formatted with FAT32 file-system then unfortunately it is not possible to use files bigger then approximately 4GB. It is not an application limit but it is file-system restriction. However you can format your memory with other file-system like i.e. exFAT to overcome this limitation.
Please be aware that it depends on particular device if file-system other then FAT32 is supported.
More information could be found over the Internet under a term 'Android 4GB file limit'.
