ffmpeg makes my video go wierd

Asked by samuel

I was using ffmpeg to convert some videos recorded using gtk-recordMyDesktop, which are in the .ogv format first I used this command:

ffmpeg -i video.ogv -vcodec mpeg4 -sameq -acodec libmp3lame video.avi

However the outputted video.avi had random grey pixels all over it, movement was distorted, and the whole thing was very pixelated, I also tried the simple:

ffmpeg -i video.ogv video.avi, and it didn't work, any help much appreciated thankyou in advance
