why is this happening?

$ ffmpeg2theora /dev/video0 -f video4linux2 --inputfps 15   -o - |
oggfwd  myhost 8000 mypass  /test.ogv
[video4linux2 @ 0x196b8c0][3]Capabilities: 4000001
[video4linux2 @ 0x196b8c0]The V4L2 driver changed the video from
384x288 to 320x240

and it dies thereafter.

i work around this using ffmpeg:

ffmpeg -f video4linux2 -t 60 -s 640x480 -r 15 -i /dev/video0 /tmp/blah.ogg
cat blah.ogg | oggfwd  myhost 8000 mypass  /test.ogv
