Configuration

iOS

With iOS 10 and higher you need to add the "Privacy - Camera Usage Description" key to the info.plist of your project. This should be found in 'your_project/ios/your_project/Info.plist'. Add the following code:

<key>NSCameraUsageDescription</key>
<string>Your message to user when the camera is accessed for the first time</string>

<!-- Include this only if you are planning to use the microphone for video recording -->
<key>NSMicrophoneUsageDescription</key>
<string>Your message to user when the microsphone is accessed for the first time</string>

Android

Add permissions in your Android Manifest (required for video recording feature)

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECORD_VIDEO"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />

Usage

import VideoRecorder from 'react-native-beautiful-video-recorder';
....

start = () => {
	this.videoRecorder.open((data) => {
		console.log('captured data', data);
	});

render() {
	return (
		<View>
			......
		  <TouchableOpacity onPress={this.start}>
