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().

// With browser.newContext()
const context = await browser.newContext({ recordVideo: { dir: 'videos/' } });
// Make sure to await close, so that videos are saved.
await context.close();
// With browser.newPage()
const page = await browser.newPage({ recordVideo: { dir: 'videos/' } });
// Make sure to await close, so that videos are saved.
await page.close();
// [Optional] Specify video size; defaults to viewport size
const context = await browser.newContext({
recordVideo: {
dir: 'videos/',
size: { width: 800, height: 600 },
}
});

page.waitForEvent('console'),
// Issue console.log inside the page
page.evaluate(() => {
