I am not quite sure what you meant by playing a “pre-recorded flight or something”. One X-Plane 11 feature comes to mind is the “Let A.I. Flies Your Aircraft” option. In which you can start from an airport gate, sit back, and X-Plane will do the rest. During the flight, you can place yourself in the passenger seat, or move your view about to any internal or external view.
X-Plane’s Replay feature is available and you can choose and move your view during playback. However, the segment is not recorded (not stored). Other than that, X-Plane has a Video Recording feature. You can playback the recorded video file, but is not interactive during the playback.
