Thanks.  So I have tried multiple different baseline, tried scaling 
different sizes, etc.  Tried even grabbing the latest and greatest 
ffmpeg version (and x264) and the problem still existed.

In the end I found a working solution, albiet not with ffmpeg.  I 
downloaded HandBrakeCLI and built it.  It encodes the videos just fine 
and they play on all systems.  It appears that HB includes its own build 
of h264 so I dont know if the problem is an ffmpeg problem or an h264 
problem.  I dont have need the options with HB, but right now its the 
only working solution I could come up with given my limited knowledge of 
video encoding.
