Here's something done on these:
http://www.ziddu.com/download/8669672/hello.avi.html

Used the updated Qemu to boot MC-2.9rc4 with KVM, captured to png with xvidcap, encoded to xvid with mencoder and muxed to mkv with mkvmerge.
Or, the best quality for the smallest size for this codec ;). The mkv is renamed to .avi because .mkv was somehow a disallowed extension there.

Apart from myself appearing to be unable to download mentioned .avi-file...
Are there any particular reasons with xvidcap to capture to .png first and
then use a different app to encode to a video format, versus choosing one
of the available video output formats in xvidcap and capture to a video
directly?

I simply prefer to do so.

- less cpu overhead not needing to encode while capturing
- more control of encoding parameters
- lossless editing at frame level if desired

Ah, thank you very much curaga, that's making it pretty clear.
Had just been wondering, as until now i had always been using xvidcap's builtin abilities (respectively
those of whatever dependencies it comes with anyway).
