How to record Gear S3 screen to get a video?

Hi, everyone. I'm struggling to find out how to either record or capture Gear S3 screen to get a video.
Who knows how it's possible. Thanks!

You can Capture Screenshots of Gear S3 by:

Pressing the Home key and swiping from the left of the screen to the right.



But, I haven't seen any procedure of screen recording yet.

It's a console application

No idea why...


But I am not able to capture Videos in Tizen 3...

Gear S3 creates 0 Byte files... and SM-Z400 saves only 1 KB Header... or it crashes and device reboot...

screen_recorder -f AR24 -o 360,360 -m 0 -t /tmp/videoAR24

screen_recorder -f XR24 -o 360,360 -m 0 -t /tmp/videoXR24

Maybe something else work... Found in Google... because screen_recorder shows something like this:

(screen_recorder:3352): GStreamer-CRITICAL **: gst_mini_object_unref: assertion 'mini_object->refcount > 0' failed
last_error(32) code(0) id(0)

My output on my SM-R760...

sh-3.2# gst-launch-1.0 -e v4l2src ! queue ! x264enc ! h264parse ! queue ! qtmux0. alsasrc ! 'audio/x-raw,rate=44100,depth=24' ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! voaacenc ! aacparse ! qtmux ! filesink lo
WARNING: erroneous pipeline: no element "v4l2src"


Maybe someone else can find correct settings faster...
