Using the app
Learn the features offered by Dashcam
Clicking on the Dashcam tray icon brings up the main window. Once it's focused, you will notice that Dashcam is active and recording.
Screen recording stops if you go idle for 25 seconds
From here, you can:
- 1.Capture screen: Start and stop recording manually, like a traditional screen recorder
- 2.Replay mode: Toggle instant-replays, like a car dahcam.
- 3.Settings: Configure Dashcam to capture logs
Let's analyze what all of the above means:
Dashcam records your screen activity using the Capture Screen button.
There are two ways to capture your screen activity.
This will start recording any screen and microphone. You can turn the microphone off by selecting None from the microphone dropdown. Clicking on the same button again will stop recording and create a clip of what occurred.
When running autonomously (dashcam mode), the app creates Replays of your screen activity for you at intervals. You can turn on Replay by clicking on Enable Replays. Every so often, based on your Settings, the automated clips will be cleared from your storage to maintain space.
You can configure error logging in the settings. Once set up, the app can capture all logs and upload them to your personal Dashcam secure workspace for others to see. Logs are synchronized with the clip of your screen and act as evidence showing, what error(s) occurred when, and as a result of what actions.
You can open the main menu to access additional options and settings by clicking the three-dot menu button in the app's right-top corner.
You can see on this menu what account you're logged in as if you have logged in right at the top.
The "Wipe Data" option will clear all screen recordings and clip data from your computer.
Wipe Data will clear ALL your local clip data. Ensure you have uploaded or saved your clips of interest before choosing this option. Once deleted, they will be unrecoverable.
Click on Settings, and the next section of this guide will explain in detail what each option does.
