Requires Audio library v1.70+: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/updates-to-internal-libraries.59340/#post-635852

Based on FileProvider example and class: Sharing files from your app with File Provider

B4X:
video.Initialize("video") 'video is a process global VideoRecordApp variable.
Dim folder As String = Starter.Provider.SharedFolder
Dim FileName As String = "1.mp4"
video.Record3(folder, FileName, -1, Starter.Provider.GetFileUri(FileName))
Wait For Video_RecordComplete (Success As Boolean)
If Success Then
   'Example of playing the recorded video
   Dim in As Intent
   in.Initialize(in.ACTION_VIEW, "")
   Starter.Provider.SetFileUriAsIntentData(in, FileName)
   in.SetType("video/*")
   StartActivity(in)
End If

I have tried this for video.Record3(...) and it fails.
What I have done:

1. In my Manifest
B4X:
AddApplicationText(
  <provider
  android:name="android.support.v4.content.FileProvider"
  android:authorities="$PACKAGE$.provider"
  android:exported="false"
  android:grantUriPermissions="true">
  <meta-data
  android:name="android.support.FILE_PROVIDER_PATHS"
  android:resource="@xml/provider_paths"/>
  </provider>
)

CreateResource(xml, provider_paths,
   <external-files-path name="name" path="shared" /> 
)
2. I have FileProvider v1.0 added to the project
3. In Starter,
B4X:
Provider.Initialze
4. Using your sample code provided above
B4X:
Dim folder As String = Starter.Provider.SharedFolder
Dim FileName As String = "1.mp4"
'videoRecorder initialised elsewhere
videoRecorder.Record3(folder, FileName, -1, Starter.Provider.GetFileUri(File.Combine(folder, FileName)))
I get the following error:
B4X:

I have also tried
B4X:
...
videoRecorder.Record3(folder, FileName, -1, Starter.Provider.GetFileUri(folder, FileName))
The error is similar.

I currently use this same code for recording audio and using the file Chooser and it works file.
