Thanks for the "webcam" hint -- by changing the Video Driver to JPEG Webcam
instead of Video4Linux2 JPEG, I am able to see the Video and hear the Audio
correctly.   But I have tried many, many combinations of FFmpeg, like mp4,
y4m, and yuv and always still get "bad file format".   Also, when trying
without ffmpeg using "MPEG stream" (had to force this) and JPEG Sequence,
and so on, still get bad file format.  Running out of ideas to test on the
laptop and do not want to boot the desktop where I saw it work a few years

In Preferences, Recording, if I just enable Audio, I can record to mp3 and
flac and it creates the Audio file which then plays back just fine.
