How to record android screen with Android Studio?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I’ve installed Android Studio in the Applications folder on my Mac (I think the sdk is then in the package content), but now I want to record my screen for a demonstration video of an app with AShot.jar, and I have to give up the path to the SDK. When I give the path I think is right, it says the path Applications/Android\ is not valid.

What to do?
Are there other ways to record your android screen?

How to solve:
  1. Connect your Device with your pc via usb.

  2. Open android studio.Ensure that device is connected with adb.

  3. Start click Screen Recording.

  4. Screen Record can record the device display for a maximum of 3 minutes.


The Screen Record Works with Real Android Device and some Emulators.

If the button is in grey and un-clickable means that device not supports video capture.

The Screenshots from my system:



For those of us who need a “Complete Idiot’s Guide” in order to find the elusive “Screen Record” button, here it is:

First, make sure you have LogCat open (Press F6, at least on OSx).

Then you might find that you still don’t see any record button. Just hover on the tiny “overflow” arrow seen in the image below.

You should now see the record button, indicated in the image below.

Congratulations, if your device supports screen recording, just click the button and up will pop a dialog asking you to input resolution and bitrate (since this is an “Idiot’s Guide”, just skip those and click “Start Recording”!).


If you are using Android 4.4 or higher you can use adb:

It can be found in the platform-tools folder under your sdk install folder.
