One option is to use VNC along with vncrec to do the recording (see the
website:  http://www.sodan.org/~penny/vncrec/).  I think there are some
other recorders also available for vnc, so you might try a google

I have found terrific demo or R package functionality at


Author has told me off-list that he is using SnapzProX (on mac), and
ghostwriter (http://had.co.nz/ghostwriter/) to automate the typing.
Unfortunatelly, I do not have mac ;) Can anyone on the list suggest, how
such a demo (video + automated typing of a script) could be produced
under either Windows or Linux OS? I would like to create such a demo for
presentation as I will not be able to install R on the machine, but I
could play a movie.
