Description

When encoding a webm/vp8 with default settings, some weird artefacts appear at regular intervals.

Then play out.webm: at t=5s, t=10s and t=15s, one single frame gets "flashy" (just like if bitrate was wrong/very-low for those frames). It's less visible if bitrate is raised but still visible (try adding -b:v 1M).

It's probably some kind of rate control bug in libvpx, but maybe something is wrong in the wrapper (I don't have time to dig this issue) so I'm opening a ticket.
