If you are having problems with the built-in encoding that the GAP
provides, I would recommend using "Video->Frames convert..." to save
your animation as a sequence of PNGs and then (externally) use
Mencoder to convert those PNGs to video.
mencoder "mf://*.png" -mf fps=15 -o output.avi -ovc lavc -lavcopts
Changing the FPS and output format as needed.
For publishing on the web, you should consider using the Theora format
and either Itheora
(http://menguy.aymeric.free.fr/theora/index.php?l=en) or Metavid
(http://metavid.ucsc.edu/) players. Itheora is more flexible but
Metavid should be compatible with the HTML5 draft standard for online
To produce OGG Theora video, you will need to use 'ffmpeg2theora' to
convert your 'mencoder' output. I have some examples of the Itheora
videos on http://flashingtwelve.brickfilms.com/Website/films.html
