 created the input file. I would guess that the wrong pixel format was used
 mixing jpeg and mpeg luma ranges

 so if there is anything wrong in the encoder it is a bug in FFmpeg as

 so clearly something changed, would at least be helpful to know what.

 (7775992 is from April 2013.)

 FFmpeg behaviour wrt to gray was changed in
 1ba01d3d46e8c200a2527ebafc71d5651084586b in July 2013, see ticket #2684.
 To get the old behaviour, either set input color_range or use the
 extractplanes filter. The patch in comment:11 is another option.
