Possible Codec Issues?

I have some video files that I'm trying to convert to .ogg or .mp3

They play fine in Video under Gnome 3.12, but they're all messed up when I load them into AVIDEMUX or AUDACITY.
They either have garbled audio or they skip.

I've checked that I have FFMpeg installed / however gstreamer-FFMpeg is not.

Any ideas why Playback in Video works, but under the editing programs I'm having problems?

Thanks.

Works for me.
Is there anything interesting in the logs or in the console when you start audacity from the terminal?

Audacity makes several ALSA references, but I'm on PulseAudio.

Both Gnome Video & Banshee play the file correctly however GVideo says the audio track is Vorbis and Banshee says it's MPEG1 layer1.
I didn't encode the original files, seems as though the metadata is corrupt.

Perhaps there's a way to just point the output of Banshee or Gnome Video to a file?

Try the usual

'command' > 'file' 2>&1

The result from terminal plays the file, but writes a 0 byte file as output. I'm thinking I'm going to have to use something like ardour that can reroute the audio to the file.
