Hi, I have asked this question but no one answered it and I think that this is bug.

I want to use VideoWriter with webm output, I am using VP8 codec. It creates VideoWriter correctly and without an error. It creates output file and it puts information about resolution in it, but when I write image into it, it doesn't do anything and output file is always only 7 KiB. I have also tried it in C++ with the same result.

I am using Fedora 19, 64bit. I have added RPM Fusion repos and tried to install every gstreamer plugin, ffmpeg and everything that popped out when I searched "VP8". I also tried it in Ubuntu 13.04 with the same result. When I tried to use different codec (xvid), it worked.

You can try it with code I have pasted on
