Hi you. Can QuickTime record screen and audio? The answer is absolutely Yes.

According to your description, you are using QuickTime to record streaming video, and you find that there is no sound in the recorded work. This is because QuickTime doesn't support the recording of system internal audio

It offers the ability to record an external microphone that you have connected, but according to Apple's official rules, the original QuickTime program still can't record any sound from the system at the moment.

However, with the help of the Soundflower extension, your QuickTime will be able to solve its flaws perfectly. Soundflower is a virtual audio data transfer software. In layman's terms, it is actually a virtual mixing console. 

This mixer is built on your operating platform and is not restricted to closed software internals for data transfer. In a nutshell, Soundflower can help us to capture the sound on our Mac system, not just the sound input from an external microphone.

Download and install Soundflower, and choose Soundflower as the audio source. Then you can record a Mac screen with system sound/microphone easily.

Sure, there are other screen recorder options here besides QuickTime - EaseUS RecExperts for Mac.
