        As in windows for we can capture screen using some API's like DirectShow, but in UWP there is no such way is available for developer. So please provide some solution to this problem.

        On iOS and Android, there are APIs that can be used to programmatically take a screenshot of the entire view. I've leveraged this to make a Cordova plugin that lets the user annotate (draw) on the screen, then take a screenshot and store it on the device and/or email it. I can kind of do this in WinJS using the share charm, but it's clunky in that I don't have a good way of knowing when the share charm is finished, and I can't prefill the subject line of the email when sending the screenshot.

        Even if mediaplayer does not contains copyrighted media (phone recorded video), it is not possible to capture its content.
