[mythtv-users] trouble with ffmpeg and mpeg4 codec

I am using ffmpeg (and mencoder) from the command line to convert video
to a small format for my PDA (as I mentioned in another thread). I
decided to try a different codec from the default in ffmpeg, in fact I
am trying mpeg4. The command line I am using is
ffmpeg -i infile -vcodec mpeg4 -b 200 -ab 96 -s 480x270 outfile
and ffmpeg accepts that. It starts converting, but if I try playing the file, gxine tells me it is a 1x7 mpeg (libmpeg2) (and shows no picture).
I uninstalled, then reinstalled ffmpeg using urpmi. The rpm it is installing is ffmpeg-0.4.9-0.pre1.5mdk.i586.rpm.
Is this version broken (if so how can I get one that's not)?
Any other ideas?
