Comment 9 for bug 522812

for the theora sample I have on my laptop, I get this output:

moreover, 10 non-garbled ppm files gets created for me.

perhaps either I or you have a funky theora file to test. Perhaps you
get better results by using the 'libtheora' codec instead of the
'theora' one?

In any case, this is not the right forum to discuss such
questions. Please try on the libav-user mailing list.
