Use a video camera to record a video of the screen, upload it to your favourite file or video hosting service and add a link to it to your question.

Unfortunately there's no good way to record the screen content at this stage of display and session management. You may want to look into different means to convey to us what's happening and you're welcome to ask for one.

    @damadam meta is public and can be read by anyone. The reputation restriction on participation applies to posting questions and answers on meta. It is also possible for users with < 5 rep to ask questions on meta by using a restricted format to ask about a specific question of their own on the main site
