I have calculated a transient problem with 50 time steps, time step size 3 seconds and 25 iterations per time step. So my flowtime is 150 seconds. When setting up the animation I chose record after every 1 second. I would expect the video to be 150 seconds long even though I only have 50 frames. However when I save the video and watch it, it is only 2 seconds. How can I get a video of 150 seconds?

It can't save the animation every 1 second because your timestep is set at 3 seconds. The lowest you can go is whatever your single time step is and then you can increase above that if your timestep is too small. In your case your timestep is every 3 seconds, that's when the data is available and that's when your animation is saved.
