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 SpeedTrack Racing, my unique 3D racing game with first person behind-the-wheel view AND third person view, a selection of tracks, car paint, 36 singleplayer rank times and multiplayer!

And check out LavaSwitch Platformer, my new challenging, complex platformer with tons of unique levels across 3 chapters! It's the complete opposite to all the generic platformers on Scratch!

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.

Come join the Memes and Trends studio!
In a few months this one studio along with the related topics has had just about the wildest history of anything on the website. It's beautiful.
Just expect to get S P I C E D H A M

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.
