    I have a Samsung Ativ s phone. How can I record a video with its camera when the screen is turned off? I've looked for apps but I haven't found any.

    This is not possible. The Windows phone API doesn't allow for this. In fact, if you read descriptions of most apps on the store, there are complaints from the developers stating they can't make apps that run in the background. I'm assuming what you're trying to do here falls under that category.
