By default, the Android device doesn’t allow you to disable the camera shutter sound for pictures or video recordings but fortunately, the XDA Senior Member rmkilc has a solution for you.

Silent Camera Mod:

This mod removes the camera’s shutter and video start/stop sounds. It simply renames the sound files so there is .bak at the end of the file name. This mod supports addon.d!Actually, it was built for the Google Nexus 4,  but the recovery script it uses should work on any device running an AOSP-based android 4 or later ROM, as long as you have a custom recovery installed to flash the zip file.

It will most likely not work on devices running manufacturer-skinned versions of android such as Samsung TouchWiz or HTC Sense.

Addon.d:

If you don’t know what is mean by addon.d then know that from the following lines. On some ROMs like CM10.1, there are scripts in /system/addon.d that run during a ROM flash. They can backup and restore apps, or perform many other functions. In this case, it will rename the sound files again when you flash a ROM update. No need to flash the SilentCamera.zip after every ROM update.
