Francois, the xfce webmaster used a VNS sesstion to record what he was
doing, he then converted them to swf format. I assume he used this [1] tool.

As for other formats, I can only imagine. But I assume somewhere there's
a program to convert between vns and video or swf and video, from there
you can just use mencoder to re-encode it to yuor desired format.

Whilst this is not the approach that was taken, you may also like to try
Wink [2], it is my undersranding that they're currently beta testing a
Linux version.
