Videos

Playwright can record videos for all pages in a browser context. Videos are saved upon context closure, so make sure to await browserContext.close().

const context = await browser.newContext({ recordVideo: { dir: 'videos/' } });
// Make sure to await close, so that videos are saved.
await context.close();

You can also specify video size, it defaults to viewport size scaled down to fit 800x800.

const context = await browser.newContext({
recordVideo: {
dir: 'videos/',
size: { width: 1024, height: 768 },
}
});

Saved video files will appear in the specified folder. They all have generated unique names. For the multi-page scenarios, you can access the video file associated with the page via the page.video().

const path = await page.video().path();
note

Note that the video is only available after the page or browser context is closed.
