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.

Recording / Screen capture with Immersive Headset

edited October 2017 in Q&A and Discussions

Is there an API for Immersive Headset that can allow me to record or screen capture while im in my own app? Something very similar to the Cliff House feature
(I am aware the hololens have that feature)

    Not really sure what you're attempting, but remember your Immersive headset apps actually run on your VR ready computer (laptop/desktop etc). You can already screen capture that with existing apps: Camtasia, snagit, typical screen recording software. So all you have to do is screen capture your mr portal.

    Specifically what are you attempting to do - use the API to capture what your custom app is showing?
