Video Screen Captures in VirtualBox

A couple weeks ago, Oracle released VirtualBox 4.3.x and with it the ability to take video captures of whatever is going on in a VM! It has always been possible to take screen shots of whatever is going on in a VM, but taking videos is something new.

If you look at the Display options of the Settings panel, you'll notice a new tab entitled Video Capture.

From this panel you can modify various parameters related to the capture, and you can toggle the capture on and off. You can also toggle the video capture from the buttons at the bottom-right corner of a non-full-screened VM, or via the Devices menu for a VM that is full-screened.

Here's a video I shot of a *.vmdk image I created using Yocto (core-image-minimal) booting up:
