Can anybody see what is wrong with this:

/usr/bin/ffmpeg -f ac3 -ar 48000 -i /tmp/mythar4336/audout -f rawvideo 
-top 1 -pix_fmt yuv420p -s 1440x1088 -r 25 -i /tmp/mythar4336/vidout 
-threads 2 -vf crop=1440:1080:0:0,scale=1280:720 -vcodec libx264 -preset 
medium -crf 20.0 -bufsize 25000k -maxrate 20000k -aspect 16:9 -acodec 
copy -f mp4 /home/public/video/Archive/Horizon - Playing God.mp4


Until a recent ffmpeg update, it used to do exactly what I wanted, but
now it produces the error message: "Option sample_rate not found." I've
googled and found various references to people having to make sure
arguments are in the right order with later versions of ffmpeg, but
my command seems to obey the rules, plus attempts I have made to reorder
have not helped.

Hopefully an expert can point out what stupid thing I am doing wrongly.
