    Looks like the best software to record how to install a PlayOnLinux game. I'll do some tests and see how it works. The cool thing is that it records audio from the game too.
    So later I can record the narration with a mic and there will still be game audio.

    I'm doing a test Drakensang video right now.
    Recordmydesktop automatically saves videos as .ogv which is an open source ogg video container.
    From there I have to figure out how to make it an mp4 or avi

    Question: If the video guide works, where do I upload them?
    Should we have our own youtube account?
    Does Xenforo support video uploading?

    It worked!
    I have a 300 MB video of me launching Drakensang and playing for a few minutes.
    I'll upload to my youtube.com account and then link to the forum

    Here is my test video. You can't see the desktop but I did launch it from PlayOnLinux.
    I'll do some more tests with manual installations in PlayOnLinux.
