gtk-recordMyDesktop outputs .ogv files that seem perfectly fine - they work well in Totem and VLC. However, if I try to edit them in openshot or kdenlive, the editor either crashes (kdenlive) or won't show the video properly (openshot). PiTiVi appears to work but then locks up when it tries to render the video.
Using video conversion tools, such as ffmpeg outputs a video that is a jumble of colours; although it is just about possible to make out some movement.
The only way I've managed to edit the videos is to use DeVeDe to create a DVD .iso, mount the ISO and then edit the .VOB file(s).
This is a bit of a faff; does anyone know of a better way around this?
