The latest version is Fraps 2.7.4 in both payware and freeware versions,for Windows 2000, XP, 2003 and x64 Editions.
Remember Video capture and editting requires a good spec CPU,plenty of Ram and a fairly decent video card.Here we are running Fs9 and capturing video at the same time,so if your PC is not up to spec dont expect to make a blockbuster.
Here is what fraps recomends

Requires an Intel Pentium 3, Pentium 4, Pentium D, or AMD Athlon, Duron, Sempron, or Opteron processor.
Captures fastest with an nVidia GeForce or ATI Radeon graphics card.

Whats the difference between payware and freeware ?
You only get 30 seconds of continuous video and the Fraps web site in the top centre of your video.
Now I know 30 seconds do'es not sound like a lot of time,but trust me, its plenty.Use up to the 30secs for different views in replay mode.Remember that you can move the tower in fs map mode and still use the replay.
For best results(my opinion
)try not to move the view while the aircraft is in flight as it can make the video replay jerky.
Try this,line up about 3 miles out from your favorite airport and fly in for the landing
Now run the FS replay,and try your different views,ie wing views and different tower positions(tick the replay continuiously box)
Save each of your clips and the use Windows XP Movie Maker or other video editing program and splice your clips together with whatever transition that takes your fancy
Add some music(could be a copywrite problem,but nah) When your happy save the video as an AVI file and get it uploaded via any of the hosting sites about
