You are using an old, fake "ffmpeg" from a fork of the FFmpeg project.
Unfortunately it is a confusing situation for users. See:

Who can tell me the difference and relation between ffmpeg, libav, and


The FFmpeg/Libav situation

If you want to use the real ffmpeg then you must compile it. If that is
not something you want to do then I recommend using Arch Linux ARM
which does provide real ffmpeg.

Otherwise, if you want to continue using ffalse ffmpeg, then you will
have to request help from libav.
