How To Record USB Audio And Video At The Same Time On Android

If you’re a YouTube musician, or just a videographer, this is an excellent technique for recording hi quality audio simultaneously as video on your android smart phone. I am running MIUI (, which is actually Android 7 on my Xiaomi Redmi 5a. On the video below I ran directly out of my mixer into my Behringer UCA202 Audio Interface. 

So how do you get it to work? Well first you’ll need a micro USB to female USB adapter like the one below.

Then finally you’ll need the app, Open Camera.

Once you have open camera installed, go into the video settings and select “use external microphone if available”. Now before you attempt recording there’s still one more thing you need to change or the videos will most likely not record. Go into Android’s app permission settings and under Microphone, find the Google App and turn off it’s access to your microphone. For some reason this interferes the recording (probably due to google spying on you all the time) haha.

Once that’s all configured, you should be able to plug in any USB audio interface or microphone and record video with great sounding audio!
