Record my desktop is really good!

i used it few weeks ago to make a presentation ...


(sorry to use youtube, the next time i'l use vimeo that's more foss oriented)

that's OssimPlanet that display maps generated on the fly by Grass.

i had only problems to record my second screen at the same time .. but i think will be easy to fix
