Many people want to create videos of a SuperTuxKart race. Be it because they want to report a bug, show off a new feature, or just to post it on youtube. To do this atm additional software needs to be installed, and very often there are problems (performance, sound missing, ...). This project is about adding a built-in video recording feature. Anyone would just need to press a start and stop button, and a video is automatically created (similar to the already implemented snapshot feature).

In order to get good performance, you may need to compress frames on the GPU before fetching them. Using the hardware encoding support in latest graphics cards would also be acceptable, but a solution that works on a wider range would be preferred.
