That's odd. I gave it try previously, it ran fine on mine. Granted I
only tried it on a very small screen size. (~320x240??) It was a capture
of a SWF file which I wanted to show as an avi. It generated tons of
files though and it really gave my HD a running around.

PS : why is it that this list To's the replies directly to the person
