Ksnapshot is pretty good for stills (though I wish it wouldn't take
a fullscreen shot when I first launch it, since I rarely want one, and
it just wastes time).

I've used Xvidcap for taking video snapshots (I put some up of Tux Paint),
and it worked pretty well.  Knowing some mencoder-fu might be useful, though.
(Apparently, some Win32 users can't watch the AVIs it generated.  What-the!?)
