many of these things are useful for MAME tho.

for MAME I think we're eventually just going to have our own format tho, especially if we start dealing with frames in terms of lines or sync signals etc. rather than bitmaps. Maybe direct to avi/mkv as a backup option, but if you actually want a capture of the video output in full then the systems MAME emulates can already do a lot of nasty things that don't fit well in .avi. Of course that would mean having some tools to do the post processing and conversion to other formats too, but if you want to actually record without loss it gets messy and that's before we even factor in other elements such as the artwork, which get rendered horribly even in screenshots right now.
