    I found this tutorial very useful and successfully created a movie from a demo.

    Tutorial

    "How To Use SR - Method 1 - More compression options - Absolute Best Quality" was the method I found best.

    If you read the tutorial I had posted, it says it doesen't always work using that method. It didn't work for me when I tried it.

    The method I mentioned will record the sound into 1 file, and will save every frame into a .tga image I think. You then use virtualdub to combine both image and sound to create a movie.

    That's probably because they were using the K-Lite codec pack. :P

    Anywho, the method Ankh described is what you want. There's a much more in-depth tutorial here. That's probably the best tutorial, overall.

    But for the love of all things good in this world, don't use a real-time encoder like Fraps (on the right):
