Within the script, and before the line that calls ffmpeg you might try
putting in 3 echo commands to see if the value is actually being seen.
You also might need to put "" around the variables in the line calling
ffmpeg (such as "$1" ) although that does not seem it should be needed.

#!/bin/bash
echo "this is value 1: $1"
echo "this is value 2: $2"
echo "this is value 3: $3"
ffmpeg -i $2 -b $1 <other options> $3

I just tried it on my FC5t3 x86_64 box and the values were passed 
properly.  I did not try it with ffmpeg but the echo worked and 
passing the values to the called command also worked.
