[FFmpeg-user] screen capture - small files

Hello all!

Than you all for the feedback on my question regarding small files. I have now landed in this command:

ffmpeg  -t 5 -f avfoundation -i "1:0" -pixel_format nv12 -c:v mpeg4 -c:a aac -strict -2 -framerate 3 -r 3  -b:v 1024  -ac 1 -sample_rate 22050 outfile.mp4

However, it is not quite there yet. What I am missing is audio played normally over a video that plays in 3 fps. With the above command all audio seems to be captured at ”3fps” and then played much faster, like 24 fps or whatever. Anyway, the audio plays quickly in the beginning and then silence.

So is there any way to capture audio during the whole session, in sync with the video which is captured at 3 fps?

(As you see i am not a power user… this is alien to me… ) :-)
