That fixed it. Thx!

FYI: I set the color_range flag to AVCOL_RANGE_JPEG and pix_fmt to
PIX_FMT_NONE, and I still get the error. Also, keeping pix_fmt as
PIX_FMT_YUV420P still errors out. My version of ffmpeg is a few months
old, so that may have something to do with it. I'm probably just using
it wrong.
