How to Record with Music

iOS and Android devices, by default, are programmed to pause the music whenever you record a video. Why? Well, the device manufacturers figured that this is the desired behavior for the majority of users, and it wouldn't be worth the trouble to add new settings for the feature. Therefore, only an app could fulfill this purpose; Mideo is that app.

Below, I'll explain how you can use Mideo for various purposes, like how to record the music while music plays or how to play music while recording a video, whether you're a dancer, weightlifter, drummer, or singer - check out some user reviews below.


How to take videos without pausing background music:
  1. Play audio from any source (Spotify, Apple Music, Podcasts, YouTube, SoundCloud, etc.)
  2. Pause the music if you want, or keep it playing - it doesn't matter.
  3. Open the Mideo app and start recording. (Notice how your music doesn't pause! If it does, resume the music using your headphones or with Control Center [see below])
  4. While recording in Mideo, you can use Control Center to restart, resume, or change the song.

How to record videos with the background music in the video:
  1. Play audio from any source (Spotify, YouTube, etc.) to a speaker (either an external speaker, or your iPhone speaker)
  2. Pause the music if you want, or keep it playing - it doesn't matter.
  3. Open the Mideo app and start recording. (Notice how your music doesn't pause! If it does, resume the music using your headphones or with Control Center [see below])
  4. While recording in Mideo, you can use Control Center to restart, resume, or change the song.

Mideo Take Videos with Music Reviews - I don’t like it. I LOVE IT! Ok, this does exactly what it says, but here is what earns it the 5 stars. I messaged the dev, Will Said, and his response was quick and to the point. Part of what makes an app great is how well the developer listens AND responds. Without response, people are left wondering if their questions & comments had been heard. I think it’s important to reward good developers as I most certainly chastise the ones who don’t care. If you have suggestions, if there is something you don’t like, let Will know. I’m not saying he will make those changes, but I’m pretty sure that he will respond to you one wY or the other. Take care and enjoy. I hope my review is helpful.

Great Value
Mideo Take Videos with Music Reviews - Finally!! Thank you for FINALLY making an app like this! This is super helpful! Especially for dancers who struggle with having to record and have music play at the same time! Easy app to use also!
Dancers
Mideo Take Videos with Music Reviews - So happy. I am an Olympic weightlifter that lifts alone on a military installation and required to use headphones. I have to record my videos for my coach and whenever I would record my music would stop and I wanted music. This app helped. At first it didn’t seem to work with my Fit Rafio account but with the quick response and effort from will he figured it out in no time. Super fast responses.
Weightlifters
Mideo Take Videos with Music Reviews - Game changer for powerlifters! I love this app. I like to crank music during my sets to stay in the zone. If I want to record my form to check for imbalances and not having music always threw me off. My only problem with this app is if you go to stop recording and accidentally hit record again, the set you just recorded doesn’t get saved. Is there a way the developers can prevent this from happening? Maybe an alert can pop up asking if you want to save the previous recording before recording a new one? Or, how about something in settings where you can choose to always save a video once you finish recording without always having to tap ‘use video’ at the end of every set. Developer Response, Update - Version 5 now makes you have to tap Retake twice for confirmation before deleting the video.

Mideo Take Videos with Music Reviews - Excellent app. You solved a real problem for me. I get to share my lift achievement with folks because of you (I can’t hit a max without music). Thank you.

Mideo Take Videos with Music Reviews - Just What I Was Looking For! This App is great! I am a drummer using an iRig2 to record drumming with music. This app allows me to record my drumming with a song playing simultaneously with a click of a button. I had an error saving videos, emailed the app creator, and he fixed it with an update in just a day!
Drummers
