When trying to play CrankyGeeks show from URL above (converted just with ffmpeg2theora without any special parameters), playing suffers in the beginning (that's another bug already filed), but then in the 18th minute playing just slows down and stalls. Just nothing happens. Needless to say that totem (with gstreamer) just plays the whole movie without a problem.

Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
1.download the file from URL above
2.ffmpeg2theora crankygeeks-165247-07-15-2009.mov
3.File/Open and play it
Actual Results:  
Playback stutters couple times and finally it gives up in the middle.

Expected Results:  
Just plays as well as totem does (I would venture to say that FF should use platform specific mean of playback, GStreamer here, anyway, but that's besides the point)

And yes, I should probably say, that ffmpeg2theora is
ffmpeg2theora-0.24-1.fc11.x86_64, using libtheora-1.0-3.fc11.x86_64, libogg-1.1.3-11.fc11.x86_64, libvorbis-1.2.0-7.fc11.x86_64

The same effect with converted http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp4/twit.cachefly.net/odtv/0722-sn206.mp4 and firefox-3.5.1-1.fc11.x86_64
xulrunner-, ffmpeg2theora-0.24-1.fc11.x86_64, ffmpeg-0.5-2.fc11.x86_64, libtheora-1.0-3.fc11.x86_64, and libvorbis-1.2.0-7.fc11.x86_64
