Record your monitor
Bit of background... We've bought into some digital signage (life channel), which is very impressive, and currently runs on one PC, with VGA connections to a projector in the dining hall and a plasma screen in another room.
What i'd like to do is make this video available to classrooms around school, I was thinking possibly VNC but obviously the frame rate is too slow to stream video, I also considered fraps, but it seems to lag a bit on playback...
Does anyone have any ideas I can try, I want to either make the PC screen remotely viewable (with sound too) or be able to record directly from the monitor to AVI. [Is it possible to record a vga input with a dvd recorder?]

Run Windows Media Encoder on the machine and you can then pick up a stream from this. It may not give you the quality you need but it's free so it's worth a try!

Try VLC (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/), it can do a lot more than just play videos. I've used it for streaming from several sources, so maybe you can get it to work from the PC display too. Or for a non-streaming solution, maybe CamStudio (http://sourceforge.net/projects/camstudio/) - this can even save flash video for some nice small files.

CamStudio - Free Screen Recording Software
not streaming but does record well
you need their lossless codec for quality, then convert in windows movie maker to something more portable.
