How to record video on the N900 with screen turned off

16 December 2011Entry by

Well some of you who would like to record video in secret could now resort to this method to record the video while turning the screen off so that no one could see what you are doing.

NOTE : For personal uses only. Please respect privacy of others

Reference from here : Maemo Forum (1),(2)

First you would have to download files from the attachments. (Must downloaded directly using your N900 and save to Documents)

pycam.txt , pycam.desktop.txt pycam.sh

Once downloaded and saved onto the Documents folder in your File Manager, unzip the pycam.sh.zip file. (Best unzipped using the Unzip Add on for File manager)

After that install everything using this command in the terminal after gaining root

sh /home/user/MyDocs/.documents/pycam.sh

Then you should have the PyCam icon in your list of applications.

Recording would start once the program is launched and stopped when application is exited

Recorded video would be saved in the Videos folder
