You won't get full desktop effects in a virtual setup, at least I have not
seen this working a 100% recently. So really this ought to be recorded on
an actual native installation with sane graphics drivers.

Well, it does not need to be tied into the release, however if you want it
to be the video is required before mid-april at the latest.

No. What I would do is have it uploaded somewhere (youtube?) and then HTML5
play it (should be working just fine in qtwebkit). Another option would be
to explicitly upload it as webm somewhere and HTML5 play it. To that extent
I think a recording should be of sensible resolution; one can always scale
down ;)

Nothing comes to mind :)
