Wow. You're supposed to copy the text, not send images.

I have NO idea whatsoever what the code is checking there, and whether
it has anything to do with your issue.

That said, as far as I can tell from the code, those messages won't
come if you choose "-vsync passthrough" or "-vsync drop". (That's just
a suggestion to try, by no means meant as a solution. Sorry.)

As questioned before: Have you tried stream-copyig instead of recoding
to flv1?
