This is a feature request not a bug.

Can we have some hooks/events to get notified when the user start/stop/pause the video recording?


picker.TakeVideoAsync (new StoreVideoOptions
            Directory = "Xamovies",
            DefaultCamera = CameraDevice.Front,
            DesiredLength = TimeSpan.FromMinutes (5)

As it stands, Xamarin.Mobile uses the system UI for the camera. In the case of every OS except for iOS, this is actually a completely separate app and it would not be possible to expose such an event.
