I could be wrong, but that's actually (in ffmpeg time frame) rather old now.

with libx264 (0.125.x) and am stuck trying to encode an h.264 file
with .mov container to playback in quicktime.It plays back the audio
fine, but the video is black.

>>ffmpeg -y -i input.mov -acodec libfaac -ac 2 -ar 44100 -ab 80k -vcodec libx264 -s 640x480 -b 670k -g 30 -r 15 output.mov

There is a "baseline" libx264 profile, or something like that, that's
supposed to make more compatible h264 vids, maybe try that?
