And as of about a week ago, it is not supported in nuvexport at all.
At this time, the supported version of ffmpeg used by nuvexport is the
one built from the source of ffmpeg that is frozen into the MythTV
source tree.  This is because ffmpeg is notorious for changing their
command-line options with no warning.  So, the nuvexport in git
(http://github.com/MythTV/nuvexport) will only work with "mythffmpeg"
which is built from mythtv's code tree.  This is built in both the
master branch and fixes/0.24.

Anyways, you did read the errors wrong :)  The previous version
required 0.5.  0.6 was never directly supported.
