it's a bug of asfrecorder.
it writes headers for multiple video sterams, but really saves only one
video stream. mpalyer tries to play the first video steram from teh header,
but usually asfrecorder really uses the last steram, others are dummy.

but this should be fixed in 1-day cvs version.

seems to be fresh enough... upload the first 2MB of this file for us!

and try -vid 2 or -vid 3 etc. usually -vid 5 or -vid 6 works.

but it should work without -vid, so it's a bug.
