Well, there's two ways to get what you're looking for.
1) mkmovie can be run entirely from the command line. Create a file
named Curses.pm (it's entire contents should be the line '1;'), and run
it from the command line.
2) Remove the code from mkmovie. It CAN be done, but I'm not really
willing to do so myself, for one reason: I put it in because I use it
myself. Taking it out would actually remove functionality that I use
day-to-day when I use mkmovie.

Now THAT is cool. I would have loved to have gotten raw output at high
speeds. Reduces the need for the transcode step. Mind you, the transcode
step works, but on machines with heat problems (read: mine), it makes it
very difficult to get things to work reliably.

I'll grab it in the next couple of days. I've got far too much else
going on right now to review it right away. Still, it would be nice to
get the YUV format export...
