The files are in a raw Guacamole format. You will need to encode it to a
video to be able to watch them. The guacamole format is not a video, and is
extremley small.
There is a tool called guacenc included with Guacamole that you can use that
makes it into a .m4v file

USAGE: guacenc [-s WIDTHxHEIGHT] [-r BITRATE] [-f] [FILE]...
guacenc -s 1280x720 -r 20000000 <FILE_NAME>

I have installed mencoder on my Guacamole box to encode the file.

guacenc -s 1920x1080 -r 4000000 <FILE_NAME> && mencoder <FILE_NAME>.m4v
<FILE_NAME>avi -ovc x264 -x264encopts bitrate=3000 pass=1 nr=2000 -nosound

This will encode the file using x264 codec into a .avi file.

Just as an FYI a RDP session i recorded of a 1920x1080 RDP session - it went
for 7:24 minutes. 
The raw file was 6.9Mb 
The .m4v file guacenc created was 213Mb
