I believe I suggested "-vcodec mpeg2video -mbd 2 -qscale 2"
and I didn't change my opinion;-)
ffv1 is lossless, mpeg2video is not and x264 is not
lossless unless you tell it to be.
Both regarding quality and filesize, I would not suggest
a lossless encoding from your low-quality source, but a
high-quality lossy encoding.
(x264 of course allows smaller filesizes than mpeg2video
for the same quality, so you can safely choose it instead.)
