If you're not happy with the quality of your screen capture, just write out the frames as bitmaps then put them together after with a video tool.

Half day coding this up, tried it, crashed, then I did the math. 30FPS * 1920 * 1080 * 3 bytes per pixel = 178MB/s. That's a lot more than the 40MB/s my disk drive can do. Tried a few different things. The best I could do is about 15 seconds of video using PNG with fastest compression and 512K chunk disk writes before it runs out of memory and crashes.

Oh well, at least the game can take its own screenshots now. And I have a shiny new "crash the game" button.

Looks like libavcodec is the way to go with this.

No! This is the perfect excuse to get 64GB of RAM installed :)

A better excuse is the hours terrain processing takes, but yes.
