Taping the meetings.

Just for the record Maya isn't a video editor... it's a 3D animation and
rendering tool.

On linux I use a $100 package called Main Actor, it's pretty good and
included DV and MPEG output.

Kino is decent for what it does; it just doesn't do very much yet.
There are commercial video editors for Linux, like Maya, but last
time I checked the "Lite" version was around $2000 and the full package
was something like $7000.

iMovie on MacOS is a decent entry-level editor. I haven't tried the
various Windows video editors, so I can't offer any comparisons.
