Hello Rustom,

You could try running gnome-session. Seems to work for other people: 

The problem with running multiple Gnome sessions as the same user is 
that Gnome wants to start a lot of Gnome related services and this can 
cause weird behavior. That's why I use a minimal window manager myself 
as the host in which I run Xephyr.

And for ffmpeg to support h.264 you have to compile it yourself as most 
distro's do not ship ffmpeg with support for h.264.
