How To Record Video From Firestick

The Firestick is a very popular device many people love. It is one of those devices that makes life a lot easier. It will plug into an HMDI port on your TV. It allows you to stream your favorite content on your TV. You can use it to stream movies from Netflix, watch videos on YouTube, HBO go, Pandora, Hulu, and many more. To do it, you will need a stable WiFi connection.


While this device has plenty of awesome features, it can’t record the videos you watch. Instead, you will have to use a different program that would make this experience a whole lot better. If you want to start recording videos from your Firestick, you’ve come to the right place. 

We have prepared for you a very simple guide. You will start recording videos in no-time. All you have to do is follow these simple steps. When you are done, you will have your recorded material saved on your TV. Here is what you should do. 

Step 1

Turn your TV on. Go to the “Settings” menu. In this particular example, the menu is on the top menu bar. Select it. 

Step 2

 Scroll through all the options and look for “My Fire TV”. Open it. 

Step 3

Here, you want to enable the ADB connections. To do that, select “Developer Options”. 

Step 4

 The first option is the ADB option. Here you can toggle it on or off. You need this option to be toggled on if you want to record videos. However, enabling this option will allow any person on your network to install apps from unreliable sources. So, you might want to toggle it back off when you are done.

Step 5

Download the “Aptoide TV” app on your TV. To do that, open the Google browser on your TV and type “aptoide tv” in the search bar. The first option should be the website where you can download the app. Press on it.

Step 6

Install the app on your TV. Follow all the instructions. Agree to the terms of use and the app will download pretty quickly.


Step 7

Go back to the home screen on your TV. Open the search bar and type “Rec”. In the search results, you will see the app you just downloaded. Select it. 

Step 8

Once you open the app, you can select the quality of the recorded material. Here, you can choose the resolution of your recording, how much time should it record, and if you want audio with that recording. Toggle the options you like and start recording. To enable these features, you will need a mouse for that. This trick works the same way as “screen recording” on your phone or tablet does. 

Step 9

To see your recorded material, go to the folder you saved the app when you downloaded it. In this example, you go to “Home” and select the folder “Movies”. Here you can find the folder for the app you just downloaded. The app will automatically save the recorded material in this folder.
