Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu if you are uncertain if they are bugs. For help on reporting bugs, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs.

Did you install ubuntu-restricted-extras ?

This will give a tonne of codecs.

Here is how I ran a simple test :
recordmydesktop

strace -f -o strace.txt vlc -vvvv out.ogv > log.txt 2>&1

I will attach the files.

Can you help with this problem?
