How can I pause, resume or restart my recording in ViewedIt?

Overview

Being able to pause and resume a recording gives you more flexibility with your videos. If you forget your train of thought or have something urgent come up, you can pause your recording and come back to it.

If you made a mistake during the recording and want to immediately restart, you can do so by clicking the 'Restart' button and either record a new video right away or cancel the recording and try again another time.

Solution

While recording your video, you will see the control menu on the lower right corner of the screen. These are for:

  • Pause/Resume
  • Stop/Finish Recording
  • Restart Recording
