@simon_tomes very interesting video and thanks so much for sharing!
I always say in our company that if a picture is worth 1000 words, then a GIF/video is worth a lot more!
i regularly record videos of bugs that take many steps to replicate so it saves me some effort when typing it up and also there’s video evidence of the issue and all mouse clicks are recorded which should help developers with replication and for them to dev-test their fix has worked. The software I use is Bandicam … highly recommended.
In terms of recording exploratory sessions, I would definitely think about that if I want to demo something to someone else … like for training I can see how they’d be very useful to a newer tester to see what an oul crusty tester like me does and the thinking process. It’s like emparting thinking process which would otherwise only come through the newer tester gaining more experience or having practical sessions. To have a library of these recordings could be good…
