i was exactly thinking that yesterday that one of the reason
of the failure of linux is that people update
components without testing the whole system,
yesterday, an update of java fucked a few things here...

so why don't you stick to stable versions ? ( e.g. hardy here )

the updates of libquicktime have always been problematic,
and frankly boring...
no i have no time to test on 10 flavors of linux...
not to speak of osx...

theora's interface is much more stable, surprinsingly,
so why don't you use it
it it's just for recording?
