VMware Workstation makes it easy to record videos of virtual machines. However, my setup is using ESXi - I access the console through vSphere. I would like to record a video of the virtual machine, but can't seem to find a way to do this through vSphere. Any ideas?

(Of course, I could just install screen capture software on my own workstation, which is running the console - but I believe I'll get much better results capturing it through vmware itself. I don't want to install any software on the guest machine.)

vSphere does not feature video recording capability like Workstation I'm afraid..

A screen area/window capture tool on the administrating machine accessing the vSphere client might give better results.

If im not mistaken you can set up VMWare work station to connect to your vShpere server as a client and be able to open your console to be recorded. Just click on File and then select add server and enter the information for your VSpere vCenter server.
