Pd doesn't support this directly, but maybe you could stick a proxy in 
between pd and pd-gui to capture/replay sessions.

Something like peerdata (formerly known as multipd) might work:


(But I've just seen IOhannes' reply saying there will probably be 
problems even if you get logging working.)

Other than that, maybe use recordmydesktop to get a video file, not the 
same thing I know...
