It is relatively simple.
Require the original game and DosBox. In DosBox press CTRL+ALT+F5 for capture video and again press CTRL+ALT+F5 for stop capture. If there are any problems I can do it, tell me only what format.

The original cutscenes on the Z cd seem to be in the JV format.

http://wiki.multimedia.cx/index.php?title=JV

JV

Extension: jv
Company: Bitmap Brothers
Samples: TBD

JV is a multimedia format developed by the Bitmap Brothers and is used in the DOS game Z. No other games are known to use this format. Carries palettized video using BTC encoding and PCM audio.

1 File Format
...etc

Apparently FFmpeg has the ability to decode the JV format:
