I didn´t find the issue on the videos, most of the videos are from the US, but not from DE.

You are welcome to create a Fedora video if you like you can also join the fedora video group if you like there is no need to ask permission.

You can try the desktop recording feature - not sure if it will work during installation: Screencast recording

Control+Shift+Alt+R keybinding starts and stops the recording. (Note: this functionality is currently missing in some distribution packages.) A red circle is displayed in the bottom right corner of the screen when the recording is in progress. After the recording is finished, a file named 'shell-%d%u-%c.webm' is saved in your Videos directory. In the filename, %d is the date, %u is a string that makes the filename unique, and %c is a counter that is incremented each time a recording is made within a single gnome-shell session.

It's a legal issue and not a problem of how to do the recording. But your answer still is valid, of course.

Legal issue? man! Is the country banned by USA? please share the law about "you need to ask for permission"...

The problem is Germany, and they laws of copyright, i will give you an example, for a few months they close the Universities use of electronic copies of books and study materials.

Most of the people that answer questions here are simply Fedora users and not affiliated wtih Fedora itself. Thus, they do not have the authority to answer your question. You should probably email directly to ask your question, as they would be the ones with the authority to answer it and give you what you need to stay on the right side of the law.
