How to capture video of the game? 02/15/2012 06:24 AM CST
I know how to take a video of gameplay of one of my download or browser games, have dozens posted on my YouTube channel. Is there an easy way to take a video of playing Tiny Heroes? I found instructions for how to take a screen shot, but haven't found any for capturing video without resorting to a separate camera.

Unfortunately, at least to my knowledge, there is no way to record what's displayed on your iDevice, be it a game or otherwise. We capture all of our footage using a Mac-based simulator that comes with the development package from Apple.

I'm not terribly surprised at that. That's how I captured video and took screenshots of the example Android game I developed. It's so easy to do using a desktop and an emulator.

Apparently there IS a way to do this, using the iPad 2 (not original iPad, which is what I have), a special dock from Apple, and a computer that has a PCI card that has an HDMI port.

YouTube instructions for Mac:

for PC:

Yet another incentive for me to upgrade my iPad. Waiting to see if the price drops in March when Apple is expected to announce the iPad 3. Or of course, if iPad 3 has way cool features....

Ok, got my iPad2, installed the AVerTV card into my PC, bought the HDMI cable and the special other cable thing from Apple, and actually managed to use it all with SnagIt to capture the video! Still trying to figure out how to get the sound too, but my first walkthrough is up on YouTube now. This one is Dungeon #4, Colosseum: http://youtu.be/fnxYsFtivLE

Not sure how many of these I'll do each weekend, but since I'm starting with a fresh device I have to do all the normal levels, and start unlocking the achievements. I'm about halfway through with Sorcerer's Keep now, and have perforator unlocked. The defense pack was automatic, but I probably won't purchase Gauntlet or Funhouse 2.

Any ideas of where the best place would be to post links to my walkthroughs? Other than just giving the correct single link in a thread about that level of course.

I think you'd get maximum exposure and help the most people by creating a signature for your forum profile that links to your youtube channel, or a play list with all of your videos in them. :)
