What word(s) can be used to discriminate between an audio recording and a 'video' recording? For example, I used an ipad to record my students' group work, but I think that if I said, "I recorded my students' music", that could easily be understood as an audio recording. But I didn't 'videotape', because I used an ipad, however it is both audio/visual. Should I just use the word filmed? Like, "hey, let me show you a film I took of my students?" I feel like that sounds so old fashioned. When we watch Youtube what are we watching? "Do you want to watch a youtube video"? Should we just agree that recordings that show visual are videos?
It is understood that a video recording would usually be accompanied by sounds ("audio"). When we watch Youtube we are usually said to be watching a 'video'. If it is of short duration it can be called a 'video clip'. In British English, the act of recording a video is often called 'videoing'.
