Video grabs of ruby curses

NOTE: updated demo 1 on Dec 29 with textarea bug fixes, para wrapping, and a quick-dirty file chooser using the existing message box.

Uploaded some video captures of the test programs.

Note: Textarea had wrapping bugs in demo, subsequently fixed.
Demo 1: full screen demo of most widgets (new one uploaded 12/29/08,  7 MB)
Demo 2: message boxes (4)
Demo 3: tabbed pane
Demo 4:combo’s with different insert policies and vertical alignments.

Note that in these demos, I am showing both tabbing thru fields, and often invoking buttons by using the Alt-combination. No distracting voiceovers, but my apologies that you will see a watermark in the middle.

My registered version of SnapZ Pro 2, hangs my oldish Powerbook, so i had to look for free alternatives. ScreenFlick is the best of what I tried, but leaves a watermark.

Screen Movie Recorder (link) is a good option with no watermarks, but creates a 4 GB file taking 30 minutes to do so. Tried converting it to smaller sizes but go junk.

Screenium creates only a 30 second file, so forget it. If anyone knows how i can use ffmpeg from the command line, to do video grab of Terminal (i supposed /dev/ttys000) (NOT X11), would appreciate that.
