Videocapture applescript needs clickdrag.m to do its mouse clicking.

CLI video capture for iOS: the applescript uses the clickdrag tool to select the given window.

  • To start recording Simulator: osascript videocapture.scpt start Simulator 1 /Users/username/bin/clickdrag
  • To stop recording and save movie: osascript videoccapture.scpt stop /Users/username/Movies/somename
  • To stop recording without saving movie: osascript videocapture.scpt stop

Used by for automatic recording of test execution in cucumber.

Probably, if I renamed 'videocapture.scpt' to 'videocapture.applescript' and put a #!env osascript line at the start, it would be better.
