Let me mention A) a]: You can record inside Gem with [pix_write]. It
stores each frame as a separate image file and doesn't require as much
CPU as recording directly into a compressed movie file. You can then
later render an optimized / compressed video from the files with tools
like avconv or ffmpeg.
