I may miss something but your command line looks as if 
you are passing FFmpeg-specific encoding options to 
x264. This may have worked in the past (although with 
limitations), nowadays please use -x264opts to pass 
the options you would use with the x264 executable 
1:1 to ffmpeg (which passes it to libx264).
