    Probably using an emulator, and a screen recording program like Fraps.

    Oh... I never see the Fraps watermark when they're recording, so that can't be it!

    Edit: Unless desmume has really really good quality?

    If you mean image quality, desmume is very good, yes. And Fraps only show watermarks on free versions.

    FRAPS doesn't have a watermark... the demo version just limits you to 30 seconds of recording instead of watermarking stuff.

    DeSmuME has an built in avi recorder that produces perfect 100% speed recordings no matter how slow it lags.

    Does it stop at a specific time, or does it have a time limit?

    you just have to find the serial on the net.
    otherwise, it's a free 30-days trial.

    Desmume's built-in recording would be better, now that I've tried it and confirm it timescales properly.

    That it does. The only way you'll notice lag is if a clock appears on the touch or top screen during gameplay, like in Pokemon. Other than that, use Desmume's recorder. Using FRAPS or Camtasia will record all of the lag.

    I know that Desmume will change the written framerate to be consistent (I guess by delaying the frame write until it's emulated each time), but does it deal with the audio samples the same way?

    Camtasia is good, if you have a fast computer that is...

    I can test it and put it here if you'd like me to do that?
