The demo_movie_save filename (where filename is the name of what you have previously opened in the player and added your camera paths to etc) parameter will open the demo player, and save each individual frame as a .jpeg into your screenshots folder.

This could be thousands of frames, (empty your screenshots folder first), but is fairly quick and painless and achieves the highest quality for your video.

Ensure your game clients video resolution is set correctly whilst ingame before-hand.
(And that its format is 16:9 16:9 not 16:10)

Import the frames into, VirtualDub for example, to create an .avi
This .avi will be choppy but is best quality.
Editing and un-choppying then depends on the software you use.

Gimme a shout if you need any other tips.

Of course, that is a great idea, and I'll make the change ASAP.
