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.

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 alexa but don't have an echo? do you like cortana but don't have windows 10?
do you like siri but don't have an iphone, mac or tablet?

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, tell the date and time, and pretty much anything siri or alexa can do except for make phone calls

*you may need to install additional software such as libttspico-utils and timidity
