Continues recording stops when I exit the app

I heve my cam pan set to continues recording to my SD card. When I hit record it does untill I exit the app or turn the screen on my phone off, then it stops recording. How do I keep it recording if my phone is off or while using different apps on my phone? Thanks

Hi. Do you have “Local recording to micro sd card” option set to “continuous” in the cam settings? If so, it should record regardless of what you’re doing on your phone.

Now, you mention you hit the record button and then exit. There should be no need for that. That button is to record onto your phone itself.

Yes, it only records if I hit the record button in the app.

Are you going to “view playback” in the app to find the footage? And, there is none?

Go to the app and advanced settings and then local storage. What do you see for as card memory available?

When I hit the record button and I hit back on the app it asks me to I want to stop recording

Are you looking in the view playback section for the videos?

What’s the full memory reading. Should have number / number.

The Record button records the live feed or SD card playback to the camera roll/gallery. It only works if the app remains in the foreground on the same screen. Think of the Record button as a “live save” feature.

If you turn on SD card recording in Settings > Advanced Settings > Local Storage, it will record to the SD card without touching the Record button. To play back what’s saved on the SD card, tap the View Playback button from the live stream and use the timeline to navigate to the timeframe you want to view.

Do you find an advantage to setting recording to continuous? I have found record events only is FAR more useful and lets you maintain a longer history by far obviously.

I have the same problem as you

the application stops recording
when clicked on home button
or when the screen closes.

the application must be foreground absolutely

android 7.1.2
last firmware wize app
continous recording sd card
battery optimization off
all permission on.

wifi always on

it,s not normal

It sounds like you are doing the manual recording by clicking the record button on live view. If SD card recording is active you get to that by clicking the playback button on live view. The manual button is a different type of recording which goes straight to your device.

Is there any way to save that playback portion save on the SD card?

Welcome to the forums! If your cameras local recording is enabled, your footage should save to the SD card depending on what your settings are. If you use the manual record button, it saves to your device. Is that what you were wondering?
