Is the problem also reproducible if you use x264 (the executable) 
instead of FFmpeg? Did you try the reference decoder?

While I cannot comment on x264 encoding options, whoever can would 
probably want to see the complete, uncut console output of above command.
(I don't remember a problem report where MediaInfo output was useful.)
