then switched to that x server using this function keys:

capture (DISPLAY should be correct for what you want to do)
glc-capture -g -s compiz --replace

(export to a series of images)
glc-play ./compiz-21933-0.glc -p 1 -o compiz%010d.png

(render into video)
ffmpeg -r 30 -sameq -i compiz%10d.png final.mp4
