Yeah, that's what caused me to run into this type of problem a few
months ago - I just thought I'd already cleaned up all traces of having
done that before.  Guess not...

Thanks, that was it exactly.  I managed to pick up on that after stubbornly
continuing to try to figure out what I was doing wrong after sending my last

Is the theora release's version of VP3 subject to any particular 'format'
restrictions, such as being limited to a particular set of framerates,
bitrates, frame sizes, or whatever?  I assume the example encoder takes its 
settings (framerate, size) from the incoming yuv4mpeg stream?  

Presuming I can get things worked out, would it be helpful for me to post
a sort of micro-howto?

And, yet again, thanks!
