x264 is the video encoding format. It shouldn't make any difference what 
video codec is used for playing the audio part.

Do you have a url to a example, I can use to test?

No, there isn't a missing option. The problem is, there are no ffmpeg 
releases since a long time. Last release is so old you can't use it for 
most things today and depending programs need more recent versions. I'm 
building from the ffmpeg development tree from time to time and there 
may be on or the other problem at my checkout time.
