Session video recording vs keystroke logging

Visually, it is easier to comprehend what is occurring during a session when reviewing a recording as compared to keystrokes. However, recordings consume a lot of storage and cannot be indexed for easy searching unlike keylogging. Session video recording is more secure as it does not record the privilege password. It is also less intrusive because no software or tweaking is required on the endpoint system.
The jury is still out on session video recording. It is a good concept but its disadvantages currently outweigh its benefits.
