You need to specify your input options before the inputs, and your
output options before your outputs. By using "-vcodec libx264" before
your audio input, you are trying to tell ffmpeg to use libx264 to
decode the audio - which it cannot do.

You need to place "-vcodec libx264" after the inputs:
$ ffmpeg -f dshow -i video="screen-capture-recorder" -i audio="virtual-audio-capturer" -vcodec libx264 -r 25 -crf 10 -acodec mp3 output.mp4
