Thanks for reporting.
Unfortunately there are many ogg theora files that don't play back on
XO-1.75, but they normally fail with an error message:
So I filed a new ticket for this video: http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/12634
The reason that it works in Browse is probably that it is not using
hardware accelerated playback there.
When I saw a case of #12004 before, I worked around it by re-encoding
the video as it had some slightly special parameters. This video would
appear to be similar. It is a 320x180 video somehow encoded into the
320x192 theora resolution. I suspect if you re-encode it so that both
measurements are equal, it will work OK.
