Your task

A past GSoC student introduced the possibility of recording a match to a video file; it is highly configurable and you can select a lot of codecs for your video. However when using a particular combination of container, video codec and audio codec, results are horrible and audio in not audible.

Can you tell what's wrong when using WebM + libvpx + vobis?
