ah well.
the only recording capability that is available for your installation is 
PNM, which creates a portable anymap image, and not really a "film" in 
the traditional sense.

the use-case is typically to write the data to a named pipe and then use 
ffmpeg or whatever to turn that into a real film:

from the commit message:

     1. `mkfifo fifo.ppm`
     2. record frames into `fifo.ppm` with this plugin
     3. encode video with `ffmpeg -f image2pipe -i fifo.ppm ...`

i probably have to add this to the actual documentation.

i'm afraid there is no real video recording backend available on Windows 
at the momemt (there used to be a QuickTime based backend, but apple 
never made this available for 64bit systems - including Windows; also 
iirc the quicktime backends required Gem to be compiled with MSVC which 
i no longer do).
