Please report your problems on sugar-devel, so that we can try to figure
out why Strawberry isn't working on your machines.

I tested screencasting on the XO, with no audio and low quality Theora, at
about 1-2 fps.  At this framerate, the size on disk is actually very
reasonable.  For many purposes, 1 fps is actually plenty, but the results
are by no means beautiful.  Of course, the XO-1 is a bit of an extreme
case, with both slow CPU speed and high screen resolution.  Any other
Sugar machine will surely be able to record at a higher rate.  (The new
Theora encoder is also notably faster.)

I think a screencasting frame device would not be unreasonable.
