produces ogv files which can't be transcoded properly

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gtk-recordmydesktop

After recording an ogv session, the file produced can be played with vlc, but can't be converted to avi or mpg with ffmpeg or by uploading to any video sharing service. The resulting video always looks like a grey smeary blur of pixels.

What I expected to happen was: transcoding the file to result in a working video file, and uploading to a video sharing service to produce a video which works properly.
