GraphEdit uses DirectShow. VirtualDub, CamStudio, and possibly Sony Vegas, use
"Video for Windows" (which precedes DirectShow)

At the moment Xiph.Org DirectShow codecs do not have a "Video for
Windows" implementation.

I do not know why Vorbis works in Sony Vegas. Unfortunately I do not
have access to
Sony Vegas, and cannot say more on the issue.
