Vnc2swf: Now here’s one for the cool ideas bin:
Recently Macromedia Flash(TM) is becoming a kind of de facto standard of animation distribution format. Vnc2swf is a recording tool for VNC, a protocol to manipulate remote window systems via network, developed by AT&T Laboratories Cambridge. It records VNC sessions and generates a Macromedia Flash movie file (SWF). It can be used as an X11 recorder or a Windows desktop recorder.
I haven’t tried it, but it sounds pretty cool.
