That would indeed be a very desirable feature. Right now it's not  
supported. Event theater only records events (including voice over)  
and plays back by re-executing the events.

What could be implemented relatively easily is to store a series of  
pictures while playing back, and save the audio as a WAV or similar.  
Then you could use an external tool to create a video from that.

Even cooler (but probably much less simple) would be to use the new  
GStreamer support to encode an OGG video directly from Etoys. That  
could really give "one button publishing". Let's see if someone  
tackles this :)
