[FFmpeg-user] YouTube VP9 vids play in VLC, but ffmpeg VP9 vids won't. Why?

So I have downloaded a VP9 WEBM video from YouTube. The file plays in VLC.
Now I'm trying to encode a VP9 WEBM using ffmpeg and libvpx-vp9. I have
carefully looked at a couple good guides (from the ffmpeg and WEBM sites),
but no matter what I've tried so far, I cannot encode a video that will play
in VLC. Only the audio will play. I have a recent build of ffmpeg.
(For what it's worth, the video does play in Firefox, but not Chrome.)
I'm not asking a question so much about VLC (this isn't the place for that)
as I am about how to encode a VP9/WEBM video exactly the way YouTube does
it. Any suggestions? Thanks.
