I belive the screenshot API only takes images, if you want to merge them into a video FFMPEG looks like it should do the trick

Actually there is a way to record video. Please read this entire thread (since the first page is old and at the time you could not): http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Native-Development/Display-Capture-API/td-p/1598681/highlight...

Re: [HELP] Use Screenshot API to Video Record Screen?

Hi.

 

There is a screen capture API that records the screen as a video stream but we are in the process of making changes to this API in a future release.  It is not fully documented because it was decided to provide access to select partners at first to get some feedback on the API before making it more widely available.

 

Until these changes have been, all developers who want to integrate this API into their apps should contact me first via e-mail (I am a member of the Developer Relations team at BlackBerry) to explain how it will be used so that I can help you avoid any issues when the app is submitted and undergoes review.  Any apps that get submitted without preclearing their use case first may face  delays in getting approved as we will contact you at that time for more information before approving.  Thanks.
