video record with screen off?

Postby jokeR6 » Wed Jan 30, 2013 7:54 pm

Hello I just bought an Optrix, and after trying VideoSport I will try VideoPro but...
Does VideoPro record video with the scrren off? I want to mean if is it posible to take a video without seeing it on the screen?

As everybody could understand if I have my iPhone on my helmet it has no sense...
I think it will be imposible with the screen locked, but what if without lock the screen it turns black? I have one light app that turns on the led but the screen only shows black....

thanks and sorry about my english (I do not speak german)

Hi,

Whenever the screen is turned off (sleep button), iOS closes any video recording session active. So to my knowledge, that is impossible to implement. VideoPro inhibits the iPhone to go to sleep, so the screen will not lock. I'd recommend to reduce brightness to a minimum to save battery while attached to your helmet. :-)

Grüße aus Köln,
