I know this is a necropost, but:

The video I use starts conversion just fine, but a few frames in, it breaks.
I keep getting this error:
Code: Select all
x264 [error]: malloc of size 6954752 failed

What does this mean?

It basically means that c library malloc() function tried to allocate memory more than 64M bytes, and failed.
This can either mean that you have 64M of RAM (that is, a vocore2 lite), in which case you certainly have no other possibilities than to customise ffmpeg or libx264 source code, or you do not have enough free memory, when you can try stopping services (or even boot to single user mode) for testing.
