Your ffmpeg does not support any H.264 video encoders, so it defaults to using the encoder named "mpeg4" which produces MPEG-4 Part 2 video. I doubt it is supported by HTML5 video players which I'm assuming is the type of player you are referring to.

If you compiled ffmpeg then update your ffmpeg source (3.3 branch is old and most users should use a build from git master branch anyway) and re-compile with: --enable-gpl --enable-libx264. Or just download a new build from: https://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/

You can remove --enable-postproc.

Also, consider adding the "-movflags +faststart" output option to your command.
