I've tried doing this and nothing happens. No errors in any log, no output, nothing. If I choose the "file" option instead of "capture device" some of the files will output to a 10Kb junk file, but none of the conversions I do will work. VLC will play these media files fairly well (seeking is broken).

What a crappy program Cheese is to output corrupt files and not offer any other file type options or codecs.... Now my whole morning doing filming with it is out the window because I have these worthless files sitting on my drive. There's got to be a way to convert these things.
