As Morrie said, there's a lot more to it than just setting the DISPLAY
variable.

This doesn't seem like a good task for cron.  IMO you'd be better off
with screen recording software - that's precisely the job they're designed for.

I don't use any myself, never needed/wanted to, so can't recommend any
but these web pages list several:

http://askubuntu.com/questions/4428/how-to-record-my-screen


All these and more were found with a quick google search:
