Record Selenium WebDriver Test Execution Video

Record Selenium WebDriver Test Execution Video

As generic automation the process we usually preferred to capture screenshot of either failed automation test case or screenshot of all test cases as it helps us in debugging and identifying the exact cause of our test cases.

But there are certain situations in our project when we are executing our automation test either using selenium grid or on some remote server or executing as part of the nightly build. In that case if any error or issue occurred during execution it is very difficult and cumbersome to troubleshoot that.

In those situations, or to simply show a demo to the client of our automation script we can video record our execution using Monte Screen Recorder API.

Monte Screen Recorder is java library that helps in creating a video recording of our selenium automation Test.

To use this API we need to download its jar or maven dependency from this link.

Till now only one version for this dependency is present and that I am using it for demo purposes.

Now in the below example, I would be doing a video recording of executing my automation script on google home page and record that in my project structure inside “automationrecordings” folder.

Below is my generic utility class that can be called as per our requirement.

Below is my Test Class.

After execution, we would be able to see video recording generated inside the folder and it can be played using VLC Player.
