Windowless movie capture

I am trying to capture video while working through a remote terminal. Though the manuals don't really mention it, I remember this being mentioned at a workshop I attended last year, that it is possible to trick the IDV into capturing movies without actually sitting at the terminal that the IDV is running at. I don't remember what the IDV needs to carry out video capture. Does forwarding X11 data to the remote terminal work?

Thanks for the help
