I had problem too with videotoolbox encoder, and I didn't figure how to
make it work, so I built a version of ffmpeg without videotoolbox and with
libx264, to be sure libx264 was used as default encoder for h264.

Here is my configuration options if interested:

 ./configure --disable-videotoolbox --disable-audiotoolbox --enable-libx264
--enable-libfdk-aac --enable-nonfree --enable-gpl

... this removes also a lot of OSX frameworks dependencies (you have to
configure/compile/install libfdk-aac and libx264 before compiling ffmpeg)
