How do I capture video or screenshots on my Android/iOS/Windows Phone device?

There are many ways to make a “mirrored’ video of your device and each platfom/device can be different (I'll write about it in future). In general, external videos are the best way to go. Here are some tips on how to create a good external video of your mobile device.
If you have ever tried to take a video of a bug on your phone or tablet (Or if you are a test lead or developer trying to view them) you know it can be a challenge. If you you don’t know what you’re doing, your video can difficult to view and understand.

This is my first instructional video and it’s simply awful  Hopefully these tips will help to ensure your audience can get the full value from your videos.

One thing I want to point out. When I was using my iPhone to take the video of the Kindle, you’ll notice that my phone is in the portrait position. Videos taken in this orientation are saved sideways when you try to view them on a computer. To overcome that problem, simply make sure your phone is in landscape position when you are filming.
