[Freedom-misc] WinFF for Rockbox : file size doubled

I converted a 26 Mo .mkv using a preset for Rockbox in WinFF.
The converted .mpg is 52 Mo, and the quality is less than the original (which  
is normal, plus is good enough for the targeted device).

Do you know any way to fix this without reducing image quality (and hopefully  
sound as well) ?

Here's the command in the FFmpeg tab, wich is the default for the preset iPod  
video fullscreen:
/usr/bin/ffmpeg -y -i "/path/to/originalfile.mkv" -acodec libmp3lame -b:a  
128k -ar 44100 -vcodec mpeg2video -filter:v scale=w=320:h=240 -b:v 400k  
-strict -1 "/path/to/convertedfile.mpg"

Handbrake didn't work (has wrappers in mp4 and mkv, even for mpeg-2).
