Perhaps you’re a dancer, trainer, TikTok enthusiast, or someone who just loves their music and video all in one. You probably like to simultaneously enjoy your music while taking a nice video. It’s a bummer however that this is impossible on the system of most mobile devices. Your music automatically halts once you click on the native camera app on your phone and press the red shutter button to take a picture or video. This is because playing music while recording function is disabled by default on many Apple and Android phones. Manufacturers probably figured that majority of users would not want background music interrupting the quality of their videos while capturing them. Well, they couldn’t be more wrong. With the rise of TikTok, Instagram stories and dance videos, the trend out there is including music in videos. Fortunately, there are tricks to getting around this default setting and simultaneously enjoying the best of both worlds. One of the tricks you could try is using a third-party app and using the QuickTake option for the latest iPhones.
1. Best third-party apps for recording while playing music.
A number of third-party apps have mastered the way to get around the restriction. These apps include Ever music, Mideo app among others.
THE MIDEO APP
This is one of the third-party apps that has gotten around the restriction. Mideo app is one of the top 100 applications in app stores. You can use the Mideo app for multiple purposes. To record your music while it plays, to capture videos while the music plays in the background (in this instance, the music is captured in the video), and to play music while recording a video without the background music getting caught in it. The Mideo app has gotten around this restriction to enable you to perform any function you want while enjoying your music on any music player.
The Mideo app is the giant of all video recording apps. The good news is it can be used on all kinds of mobile devices whether android or iPhone. It also takes high-quality videos and it is free. You also learn how to use the control center on any mobile device you own. The control center can be used to restart, continue, or change the music. All videos you take are automatically saved to your phone gallery. Get the Mideo app by opening the app store to start using this amazing function.
Using mideo app on Android and iPhone
Open the app, Play your music from any audio player source. Be it SoundCloud, Spotify, YouTube, podcasts or google music player, the Mideo app supports all. You notice that the music does not pause like it ordinarily should, but you could pause it yourself before proceeding with the remaining steps. If by chance, it pauses by itself, you could resume the audio using the control center. Finally, Start recording your video.
EVER MUSIC APP
This another third-party app that allows you to play music while recording in the background. Visit the app store and search for the ever music app for free. Simply download and open the app to start playing music while recording
2. Apple phone QuickTake option
You can also override this feature with the apple QuickTake shooting mode which accompanies iPhone manufactured in 2019 and of recent. With the QuickTake option, you could successfully shoot videos in the photo mode while your music blares from your phone speakers. To tape your videos, first, play the music you want on your iPhone using any music app of your choice. Ensure that the audio is loud enough for the phone mic to properly capture it. Next, open the photo mode in the camera app. Press and hold down the shutter button or the volume button while you are in the camera app.
The only downside is that the option is not available to all iPhones. If you are in this category, you should stick to using third-party apps. They function as well as the QuickTake option. Point is, no matter the type of mobile device you use, as long as it is a smartphone, you can successfully override this feature. Blast your music while recording a video all day long.
