For demoing an Augmented Reality app, I would like to do a screencast of the Android device's screen (HTC Desire S).
The open source project androidscreencast works fine, except for the camera view. The overlays on top of the camera show through, but the actual camera view itself just shows up black. I have the same issue with the ddms tool that comes with the Android SDK - I can capture the screen, except for the camera view which appears black.
Here's the image I get using the ddms tool if I try to capture the screen when I have the normal camera app running: http://twitpic.com/83uztm
Please does anyone know why this is and how to get around it? Is it some kind of security feature, or a bug?
I came across something earlier that looked like a code workaround someone had come up with, but I don't have access to the app's underlying source code, so I need a non-programming method of getting this to work.
