Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Record video and use PhotoCapture in Unity app in HoloLens at the same time

I'm working in a Unity application to scan QR codes with HoloLens. It works fine and it does what I need, for I need to record a video demo, and whenever I use PhotoCapture to take a photo of the QR code and scan it, the Cortana recording stops. Is there a way to record video and use PhotoCapture at the same time without canceling the recording? Videos like this show that is possible somehow:


I also tried the live stream on the HoloLens companion app, but once the live stream starts, my airtap does not take any PhotoCapture, it looks like the live stream "locks" the PhotoCapture instance.

I really need to show a demo of my holographic app, while taking PhotoCaptures, is this really possible as of now?
