Screencast only captures static images (png from memory) to your /tmp 
(unix/mac) or whatever your defualt dir is.  It is up to you to then use 
the VSE to create a movie format from those static images. This is done 
to minimise CPU time spent encoding video when you want nice UI performance.

However at the moment there are a few bugs in screeencast. One 
particular is that if you change anything in the Last Operator panel on 
the toolbar ( "T" and at the bottom of that is the last operator) it 
will cancel your screencast.
