Try with -noslices.
That feature has been broken in FFmpeg semi-frequently, it is
not unlikely multithreading breaks it even worse than normal.
It should only be files with older codecs that are affected then,
as slice rendering was only ever implemented for them (and on
modern machines the speed advantages of it are probably negligible).
