That's the HLS fixes that have gone into trunk but have not
yet been backported to 0.25.  If you compile from source, you
can try bumping up the profile level in avformatwriter.cpp,
but you'll probably want to upgrade to 0.26 when it comes out.
the current master branch uses AAC audio instead of MP3 and
has some logic in it to set the h264 level based on the
output resolution, so it tries to adapt to the best quality.
This was a simple solution for now, allowing the client to
specify a profile level to use will probably come later.

If you want to update your source and recompile, you can
change c->level on line 430 to 30, 31, or 41 depending on
your hardware devices.  30 is fine for iPhone 3G and up,
31 for 3GS and up, and 41 for iPhone 4S up and iPad 2 and up.
