That's probably your problem right there.

When you put anything in that field other than "mythtranscode" or leaving
it blank, then you are saying "this is the exact command I want to run to
transcode a recording".  When you do this, the JobQueue doesn't know
what options to pass to the program so mythtranscode just fails.  There
should be some output in your backend logs.

Reset this command to "mythtranscode" or leave it blank and see if things
start working.
