Remote Professional, the perfect tool for remote controlling S60 and UIQ based smartphones, can now record videos for online video sharing sites like YouTube, and Flash Video web players by using its own Flash ‘ScreenVideo’ Codec.

The new release of Remote Professional now includes improved support for recording videos from the screen of a Symbian based smartphone (S60v3, S60v5 and UIQ3.)

By offering its own built-in Flash Video Codec, Remote Professional can conveniently record lossless FLV videos for web publishing (YouTube, and others.)

The new video recording feature now allows to capture screen orientation changes as well as adding a phone skin to the recorded video. The video frame rate, size and background can be freely configured. For video editing, Remote Professional can save an uncompressed and lossless AVI movie.
