Are you intending to re-encode? Do you not want to stream copy instead?

--enable-nonfree is superfluous here since you did not enable any
external libraries that do require it.

Do you really want to be using flv1 as the encoder? It's old and crappy.

Also, I am not familiar with your device, but can it even handle
encoding 1280x720 at your desired frame rate (with libx264)?
