it would be nice if you add an option, that let's the window only follow, if the mouse has moved outside the boundaries of the window. As it is now, the window moves on every mouse movement, which makes the whole video appear nervous.
It would also be nice if you could disable the drawing of the window boundaries, as you can see them in the video.

    Martin was working on this. Next version will probably work more
    or less like this.

    --no-frame is the option you are looking for (or turn off
    "Outine Capture Area On Screen" on the gui ->Advanced->Misc. tab)

    i disagree. that might not the option the guy who made the suggestion was lookin for (i guess he already knew about it).
    the point is that you _want_ to know the screen area currently recorded - by now that is only possible by displaying a the mentioned frame (by not issuing the `--no-frame' option). that frame is needed if you want to know what exactly is recorded (esp. when u selected an area smaller than the screen dimensions). this frame becomes even more important if you implement the suggestion btw.
    what the guy wants to say - and what i do experience as well - is that while you have the display of the frame enabled and you move your mouse and thus the frame across the screen, the movement of the frame itself is somewhat delayed and falls into the capture area - that means portions of the frame will become visible in the recording.
    in think this behavior is not intended and should be removed.
