problems in colors of recorded video depending on the devices. So it is highly recommended

CaroO Driving Recorder uses a low-level recording engine (Continuous Recording Mode) on
Jelly Bean devices which records video continuously and splits video data into files. In this

engine, CaroO Driving Recorder provides as reliable results as hardware video blackbox.
For devices which do not support the Continuous Recording Mode, we also support a
conventional recording mode using internal video file recorder on Android devices (File
Recording Mode). In this case, seconds of unrecorded video gaps always appear while
creating a new video file. This is a limitation of the internal video file recorder on Android
devices.

work properly on your Jelly Bean device, please try the File Recording Mode. We will keep
trying to support more devices to use the Continuous Recording Mode.
Color Mapping On/Off (Only for Android 4.1 or higher)
Depending on the manufacturer or devices, the recorded video might have a problem of color
mismatch, and the recorded video will not look natural. In order to solve this problem, we
