There is neither a known encoder nor a known decoder that
supports the "baseline" profile, 77 is "constrained baseline"
which is supported by all encoders and decoders.
(constrained baseline is a strict subset of baseline, so 66
is not a wrong value, just a useless one. You can patch
x264 if you need 66, short googling did not reveal an
option to force this value.)

This is what I tried to explain yesterday.

Please find out what top-posting means and avoid it here,
