I think that something that would make it a lot more useful would be a
keystroke log and output capture.  It would be a lot of work to
generate, but a replay of what's on the screen, including the pauses
and typos, accompanied by the audio track, would capture 99% of the
available "wisdom".  Of course there are a few gestures, pointing at
the screen, and maybe hardware adjustments, that would be vastly
clearer in the video.  Those could be spliced in, or the video given a
corner of the screen, as appropriate.
