I can hardly watch screencast that are longer than 3 minutes.  I think
the everage is ~4.5 minutes.  One way to improve this screencast might
be to split it into several parts.

If you have access to the source video file, you can use a tool called
subtitleeditor (http://home.gna.org/subtitleeditor/) to add subtitles.
It's only available for GNU/Linux, but there must be similar tool for
Mac or Windows.

That would be ideal, I don't know how far we are from that!

Let's start by doing things by hand, it will make us better understand
what and why to automate/distribute.  And let's not forget to document
this on the wiki - http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Video_Using_Sugar
