Awesome. A while back I bought a video capture card for capturing video games 
and it works great for NetBSD videos as well. The world's most boring Raspberry 
Pi video is at http://youtu.be/Q6q16htgMSI. There's five seconds of black 
screen to start with before I power on the Raspberry Pi, so don't worry when 
you don't see anything at the start. The boot sequence is so fast that you need 
those few seconds to let YouTube get up to speed and so you can fiddle with any 
play back settings. The NetBSD console is only readable at 1920x1080, so you 
may need to play the video full screen. 

This also shows the bug where the SD card can't be accessed by NetBSD. The SD 
card works fine with Raspbian and the firmware files worked with an older 
NetBSD kernel.
