This skill will record your screen to a video file. You can use ControlCommand() to start, stop the recording or simply press the skill buttons. This skill will record in the WMV1, WMV2, or H263P formats. This can be used to generate video snippets for tutorials or demonstrating how to perform certain tasks. Upload the video files to YouTube and share with the community.

Is this what you are using during your hack nights DJ? I've noticed you broadcasting from your computer when ARC was not running or perhaps I am mistaken.
For broadcasting, I use OBS Studio during the hack nights. 

This robot skill i will use for recording tutorials and such to answer questions on the forum (if needed)
