Maybe your PC isn't powerful enough for it, I record them on my high-end
There is another piece of software you can use, but it only outputs
which are more difficult to edit, unless you try transcoding it in to
mpeg or avi and edit it then.
I record the video without sound then use audacity to narrate and join
the wav and ogg with a script  that uses GStreamer.
By edit I really mean splice in your header and footer. Although you
don't *have to* use a header or footer.
