ffmpeg has supported libvpx 1.5.0 for a very long time, and still does.

Who says that, and what does it say?

ffmpeg needs to be compiled with support for libvpx. Perhaps yours
isn't, but I cannot guess without more detail.

If simplescreenrecorder uses the same ffmpeg libraries as your ffmpeg
command line tool, you can check with
$ ffmpeg -codecs
and check whether libvpx is listed.

(ffmpeg 3.2.4 is very old. If simplescreenrecorder supports anything
recent, please try to use a new version of ffmpeg.)
