The recording of the files is performed in real-time so the files’ recording will be exactly the same duration as the content you want.

How to use
First of all, to make AirPlay Recorder work properly, you will need to synchronize your device with your computer since you need the features that Airplay function offers, similar to mirroring functions for other apps. For a great performance, a 5 GHz Wi-Fi router is recommended.

In this case, AirPlay Recorder gets the information directly from the computer, which ensures that the information is right and without failing in the recognition process. For recording the content you only need to press the big red button in the touchscreen to start the recording process, and that’s all you need once the app is synchronized with your Mac or Windows computer.
