[h264 @ 0000025867b3dac0] Could not find codec parameters for stream 0 (Video: h264, none): unspecified size
Consider increasing the value for the 'analyzeduration' (0) and 'probesize' (5000000) options
Input #0, h264, from 'result.h264':
  Duration: N/A, bitrate: N/A
  Stream #0:0: Video: h264, none, 25 tbr, 1200k tbn

result.aac: End of file

  • Add -analyzeduration 100M -probesize 100M before each of -i result.h264 and -i result.aac.

  • Although it looks like your aac file is very short.
