I see the builds at http://firefogg.org/nightly/ were updated  
yesterday. I transcoded the same videos with the same settings using  
the latest macosx build, and the black borders have disappeared.  
Whatever was causing the problems has been fixed since.

So consider this bug closed. :)

Thanks for all hard work,
