as far as i know, the biggest problem is that putting vorbis audio in an
.avi file is  not a good idea... vorbis audio is a variable bitrate
audio format and avi doesn't like it ( as i know there are ways to put
cbr audio (either mp3 or ogg ) into an avi file, but those methods rely
on some bugs-or-what in the windows architecture or something like that )..

to summarize : there's no correct way to put vbr audio into an avi file
=> most people who want to put vorbis as audio experiment with the other
way : put divx (xvid whatever) video into ogg.


p.s:of course i can be wrong...(but idon't think so ) :-)))
