How can I rewrite and change app_inventor after sound record to user My Documents

Hello great Koders I have an app that uses sound record component and keeps the 3gp file into user’s My Documents as you can see the blocks and the screenshts here.

Then it saves the recorded file as app_inventor_1585895679025.3gp

Please can I change this to a specific name such as magic_radio or sky_news

Thanks for your help you will provide

Are you using an external extension?

No I am using kodular component

Is there a property “Save file as”?
I have never used this component so I am not very familiar with it.

Property are only these

What is the SAVED_RECORDING property set to in the designer?

Like this?

Was that the default path or did you change that?

It’s the default path.
And also the property have a block description.

It is a default I didn’t change anything.

It says MySound, so why does it save like app_inventor_…

Try to set the “saved recording” path too at the blocks before you start the record.

But is it possible to rewrite or set blocks to save as etc?

Sorry @Mika how can I do it :point_down: :point_down: :point_down: :point_down: and get this :point_up_2: :point_up_2: :point_up_2: :point_up_2:

Before saving, set the path to e.g. /mnt/sdcard/SkyRadio/recording_{current date and time}.3gp

Try it like that

I think there is a bug at our component.
Why? It looks like the path is not set correct if you don’t set it with blocks.

I don’t know because I have tried it but not working

Maybe you can share a apk?

Hello @Mika here is an apk as you suggested Sky_News.apk (5.8 MB)

Every time I try to record this is what I get

and these are the blocks
