You need to add a -lavcopts format=[some rgb format] for ljpeg to
work. However this command line is pointless. If your files are jpeg
already, converting them to ljpeg will just make them BIGGER. Instead,
use -ovc copy to just copy the jpeg files into the output file as
mjpeg frames. This should work as long as they were created with just
normal baseline jpeg settings, nothing odd/special.
