Removed in April git has now added 3 new options for libx264 encoding:
-preset <preset>
-tune <tune>
-profile <profile>

These options are directly mapped to internal tune and presets within
libx264. The old presets files have been removed, please use the new

Such as:
-profile baseline

See "x264 --help" to see available presets, tunes, and profiles
