Recording Video

To start recording a video you can press the "Start recording" button or call the StartRecording method of the RadWebCam control.

WPF RadWebCam Start Recording Video Button

To enable video recording set the RecordingFilePath property of the control. This is the path to the video where the recording will be stored.

Set the recording file path in XAML

<telerik:RadWebCam RecordingFilePath="C:\temp\video.mp4"/> 

Set the recording file path in code

string videoFileName = Path.Combine(Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.Desktop), "video.mp4"); 
// If there is no "video.mp4" file, such file will get created. If the file exists, it will get overridden. 
radWebCam.RecordingFilePath = videoFileName 
To stop recording, press the "Stop" button or call the StopRecording method of RadWebCam. This will stop the recording and close the file stream.

Stop capturing a video

You can indicate that the camera control is recording via its IsRecording property.

Setting the IsRecording property of RadWebCam will also start or stop the recording.

Elapsed Time Format

The control allows you to replace the default elapsed date-time format. To do this, set the VideoRecordingElapsedTimeFormat property of the RadWebCam control.
