bullshit as long as you are quoting also the line from the OP
without any codec specified and "-f flv" because ffmpeg is chosing
the codec by the extension/format and FLV IS A CODEC

what d you think si trying ffmpeg to tell you here:
>> Duration: 00:04:37.40, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 523 kb/s
>> Stream #0.0: Video: flv, yuv420p, 480x270, 459 kb/s, 25 tbr, 1k tbn, 1k tbc
>> Stream #0.1: Audio: mp3, 44100 Hz, stereo, s16, 64 kb/s

what do you thin does this mean after typing "ffmpeg -codecs | grep flv"
EVSD  flv  Flash Video (FLV) / Sorenson Spark / Sorenson H.263

in other words: you should not use ".flv" as extension if you use H264
and take isteand a mpeg-container!
