Friend or family member have asked me so many times for help regarding configuring somethings on their Android smartphone(s). Maybe, they are not that techie, perhaps they have migrated to using android from another operating system (e.g. iOS, Java) and are thus unfamiliar with it; the reason could be anything.
Now, if your friend or family member handed over their smartphone to you so that you can help them do some tweaks, it would be straightforward to do that. But what if they are at the place you are at that moment? Wouldn’t it be great if you could Record Video of Your Screen on Android Phone or Tablet showing the entire troubleshooting procedure, step-by-step, on your smartphone and then send it as a video to them? And is this possible?
Yes, it is. You can create a video recording (or screencast) of your Android smartphone’s screen, as well as all the actions performed on it (e.g. taps, menu selections), directly from the device itself. All you need is a free app called DU Recorder. Here’s How to Record Video of Your Screen on Android.
Why use DU Recorder?
There are countless screen recording apps available on the Google Play Store. But for our tutorial, we’ve chosen DU Recorder. That’s because it’s free, lightweight and doesn’t come with any recording time limit or other such restrictions. Moreover, DU Recorder doesn’t have any ads and supports Full HD video recording.

At any given time, you can control the recording options via the app’s widget in the notification shade
Step 4: After the video has been recorded, you can use DU Recorder’s advanced options to tweak it as much as you like. You can trim the video, add background music and images, merge multiple videos, and do a lot more.
