Screen Capturing Application Bounty

New suggested bounty open, please donate
AmigaOS is crying out for software that allows the user to record what is going-on on their screen.
With YouTube popular as ever - many AmigaOS users want to show off their operating system, and the applications and software available. At present AmigaOS users are expected to point a camera at the screen - this results in making AmigaOS look very un-professional and less appealing to potential customers. This is unacceptable.
This bounty is to produce a screen capturing tool that sets to achieve much higher recording speeds as well as recording audio than current implementations. The software should take complete advantage of new features found in AmigaOS 4.1 and AmigaOS 4.2 (when available) to record the display at the optimum speed.
The developer who accepts this bounty may choose to exploit the capabilities of the Radeon HD graphics card series as found (optionally) in the AmigaOne 500 and (as standard) in the AmigaOne X1000.
The developer should also aim to fully exploit Gallium/Mesa when it becomes available - again to make sure the Screen Capturing Application is realising its full potential.
