First I want to discuss the scenario happening in snapchat.
In snapchat when you start recording video and song is running in background; It allows continue that song while recording video and after you record that video you can also able to hear that song in background.
I am using SCRecorder for recording video and capture image with my custom layout . Now in that I want to do just like above scenario but problem is whenever I start recording the video in background song is stopped playing.
SCRecorder is using
Here is what i used to allow background music play with SCRecorder library. Hope this help for you too.
Write this code in your AppDelegate class within didFinishLaunchingWithOptions method -
AVAudioSession *session1 = [AVAudioSession sharedInstance]; [session1 setCategory:AVAudioSessionCategoryPlayAndRecord withOptions:AVAudioSessionCategoryOptionMixWithOthers|AVAudioSessionCategoryOptionDefaultToSpeaker|AVAudioSessionCategoryOptionAllowBluetooth error:nil]; [session1 setActive:YES error:nil]; [[UIApplication sharedApplication] beginReceivingRemoteControlEvents];
After this write below line in SCRecorder libaray's 'SCRecorder.m' file within prepare method after initialising AVCaptureSession.
session.automaticallyConfiguresApplicationAudioSession = NO;
If you are not a SCRecorder library user, then write above line just after initialising AVCaptureSession in your class.
