I am trying to capture a certain region of the screen (actually its specifically a number of visible windows) on Windows XP with FFMPEG but I can only find options to capture from X11:

Is there any way to do it using the win32 binaries on Windows XP? If it can't I am open to any hacks like making various windows X11 accessible some how?

You can do it using FFmpeg and screen-capture-recorder-to-video-windows-free.

Sample command

ffmpeg -f dshow -i video=screen-capture-recorder -r 24000/1001 -q 1 out.avi

I was searching for the same thing. I found that ffmpeg can't capture from the Windows screen.

However, you could try ImageMagick which works on all platforms.

Note ImageMagick will capture images not video. –  Steven Penny Jul 24 '12 at 21:46
