iOS devices that do not meet the requirements will not display the record option. iOS 10.2 beta currently does not support this feature.
Recording is only available on Android devices running on Lollipop/5.0 or higher. We do not yet have a list of devices for the hardware requirements - if you attempt to record, your device should notify you if it does not meet them.
Android devices that are below the required Android OS will not display the option, however, devices below the minimum hardware requirements may still display the option, but it will not work.
The record/stream function can be accessed from the Clacker Icon in your Account/Overview and from Replays from the Clacker Icon in the top left of the screen. Clicking it will display a prompt for your respective platform to set the video quality. (Note that for Android you will only have the option to record)
After you have done this, the user interface to record or stream will display and consist of the following UI elements:
Record Menu: This will display a general icon, or a bubble recorded from your device camera. It can be dragged around the screen and will display in your recording. Tapping it will hide or display the other Record buttons.
Device camera toggle: Turns on or off the device camera.
Microphone: This will enable or disable your device’s microphone.
Record: Tapping the circle starts the recording/stream, the square stops and saves the video file or stops the stream.
At the end of a match the option to replay it will display which can be selected; doing so will load a replay of that match.
The replay will begin at regular time with the camera focused on your hero. If you would like to record or stream the replay and meet the hardware and operating system requirements you can open the Replay Settings at the bottom center of the screen to bring up the timeline and pause/play it.
From here you can set:
- Where in the timeline you would like to start replaying from (Note that hero deaths and destroyed turrets are marked on the timeline)
- The speed you would like to play it at
- Using the Hero Display button (3 squares followed by 3 lines) you can toggle the hero names, health bars, and portraits. Tapping will cycle through these 3 options:
- Names, Health Bars, Portraits all display
- Health Bars and Portraits display
- No character UI elements display
You may also Exit the replay from here. Taping outside of the Replay Settings UI will close it.
From here you can open the Clacker Icon at the top left of the screen to bring up the recording UI, as described earlier. Once you are ready to record or stream you can hit play then record. Or you can just opt to watch the replay to observe plays and strategies for yourself, if you can’t or don’t want to record or stream it.
Just as in spectator mode you can move the camera around by tapping on the screen, the mini map, or by tapping on heroes or their portraits (if they have been set to visible).
You can exit the replay from the Replay Settings or from the Scoreboard UI.
- Video size will be limited by local memory available and is highly dependent on what device you're recording on, what resolution you're recording at, and what length your recording is.
- Both ReplayKit and Google Play Games recording output in MP4 format.
- To get the camera angles and speed changes you will have to RECORD a REPLAY
- The recordings will be saved to the your device, not our server
- Recording is done on the device so there will be no increase to data usage; however, there will be if you are streaming the replay
- At no time is recording started or stopped automatically
- Currently, streaming can link to Mobcrush
- If you are recording & streaming at the same time during the match it is possible for your FPS to drop. If you just record or stream the replay, your match FPS will not drop, but the FPS may drop during the replay.
