Have you considered adding this info the the mythtv wiki?

You should be aware that the param() method used (which you patched) was
designed to detect different versions of ffmpeg and send the correct

send me the output from `ffmpeg -h` so I can see if I missed any strings
in detecting which parameters to use.
