The OGV and OGG container format seems to be supported but only audio is playing. Here's the file info (ffmpeg -i):
Input #0, ogg, from '/leszek/Videos/Screencasts/custom-usplash.ogv': Duration: 00:20:55.20, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 260 kb/s Stream #0.0: Invalid Codec type -1 Stream #0.1: Video: theora, yuv420p, 720x480, PAR 1:1 DAR 3:2, 15 tbr, 15 tbn, 15 tbc Stream #0.2: Audio: vorbis, 44100 Hz, 2 channels, s16, 80 kb/s Metadata ENCODER : ffmpeg2theora 0.21
Hope this helps for debugging. What is intersting is Stream #0.0 that is recognized as invalid. I am not sure but I heard something about skeleton' meta-data that is stored there. The theora video decoder is still missing I suppose. Also there is the new Thusnelda Encoder for Theora. It should be compatible to the older files, so nothing has to be changed in the decoder to support it. It would be awesome to have a encoder also.
I attached a small example video I created on my ZEVENOS box with recordmydesktop. So it might be somehow be a little different then the normal ogg files but it should help ;)
