Your mistake is in -acodec libx264.

Type ffmpeg -codecs in cmd, and look in libx264:

EV     libx264         libx264 H.264 / AVC / MPEG-4 AVC / MPEG-4 part 10

You'll see "EV", where "E" means Encode, "V" means Video codec. There's no "A", which means that you can't use libx264 as audio codec. Consequently -acodec libx264 is false.

Now the answer – try to use another audio codec, e.g. aac, the built-in AAC encoder:

ffmpeg -i recod_audio.wav -i recod_ideo.flv -c:a aac -strict -2 -c:v libx264 output.flv

Or MP3:

ffmpeg -i recod_audio.wav -i recod_ideo.flv -c:a libmp3lame -ar 44100 -c:v libx264 output.flv
