We provide support for browsers like Chrome, Safari and Edge to record/film the computer screen.

We would like to know your opinions/ideas for testing this features.

What can be possible tests that we can perform?

  1. Test with selected tab only, and make sure that when you switch to another tab, it does not get recorded.
  2. Test the recovery testing, when a test is in progress and browser crashes, what happens?
  3. Test the recording for more than 30 minutes.
  4. Analyze the file size of recording.
