You want to use CryptKeeper in the screencast. It's a gnome applet and
uses encfs and fuse. It's dead simple to install and use on a basic
ubuntu setup.

Basically you create a folder which can dynamically grow and encrypt it
with a password.

Once you've mounted the folder with the gnome applet, you use it like a
normal folder. I've been using it on my hd and usb drives for a couple
of months now without any problems at all.

It's not in the repos atm but you can download a deb file for it from
