    Using the build in screen recording app doesn't allow me to record the system audio output.

    Is there any way around this?

    Ooooh, didn’t know about this on a mac. On the ipad, you can manually tell it (every time) to record sound but it only records the external speaker.

    No only build in mic shows up. No system sound option.

    I installed sound flower extension which is supposed to do this but it's not working and can't uninstall it. Quite annoying.

    Soundflower does work, but you have to do a few things.
    - select in the menu bar that sound out must be Soundflower (2ch)
    - press shift + cmd + 5
    - select video (full screen or area)
    - press settings and select Soundflower (2ch) as microphone
    - start recording
    - after recording, switch audio back to built-in speakers before playback.

    You cannot hear the sound while recording, but it can easily be solved by running "Audio MIDI Setup.app" in Utilities and create a multi-output device where you choose built-in speakers and Soundflower (2ch). Then select this as output in the menu-bar. Note that the volume keys do not work as long as the sound is output via multi-output device, so set the desired volume beforehand.
