The Scratch video recording needs to be improved

When you click File in the Scratch editor you can record a video of your project. However, it has quite a few significant drawbacks:

  • It can only record up to 60 seconds
  • It records in an obscure file format (.flv) that can't be opened by default using a normal video player on a PC
  • The recording lags the project severely

All of these make this recorder very unfavourable to use - it would be great if the time limit could be extended, it could record in .mp4 and for the lag to be reduced.

Check out Life Raft Survival, my new advanced sandbox survival game with crafting, building, transportation, weather events, tropical storms, and more!

In the game you're stranded at sea after a mysterious crash and must survive in an unforgiving tropical island environment collecting resources and crafting, in an attempt to finally be rescued.

I feel like it's easy enough to just use a separate recording software: QuickTime comes built in on Mac and Windows probably has one as well.
But there are problems with recording software as well (e.g. need Soundflower to record system sound on Mac etc) so semi-support.

Support,why you should record a video if you can't use it?

CONSIDER READING THIS, PLEASE:
Don't write things someone already said. It's useless.
If you want to point a duplicate, please don't write just “Duplicate” when you don't have the link. At least say that you can't do it because -reasons-. Writing it and then going away does not help.
Don't write “I agree”, “this” or just quote without adding something constructive. It doesn't help.
No supporting because “you can do this elsewhere” is not a valid reason. If it was, the suggestion forum wouldn't exist because you can do everything elsewhere.
A simple workaround is not, never was and will never be a reason to no-support a suggestion. There are plenty of blocks with simple workarounds in Scratch right now, and there's a reason if the ST still added them.
No supporting because “it can turn into a competition” is not a reason, since it can happen everywhere (such as follows). Post count: 1900+

There are many other pieces of software, such as OBS Studio (free) or the inbuilt screen recorder that comes bundled with Windows 10. Both are fairly lightweight and are good alternatives.

Yeah, the free version of bandicam has ten minutes.

do you like siri, alexa, cortana, or google assistant, but can't buy an iphone, echo, or google home?

then try alice!

alice is a wonderful virtual assistant that works on linux and is tested on raspberry pi*
she can play music, search online, answer questions, tell jokes, give you the date and time, and plenty of other things

*you may need to install additional software like python 2, libttspico-utils, and timidity
