Is there a way to record passthrough mode through the rift s?

I'm trying to record passthrough mode through the rift s, but when I use oculus mirror and go into passthrough mode it just turns black.

Is there any way I can record it?

    No, not easily. You should find a Youtuber that has posted video of passthrough and ask them.

    I believe this was intentionally blocked from VR apps, to avoid privacy concerns (allowing apps to access the external cameras to spy on users). I have seen some videos from YouTubers showing the passthrough view, though I'm not sure how they managed to capture it--maybe some sort of DisplayPort splitter?
