I don't know if it will improve your colors, but you can use the -q
parameter to control the compression. -q 5 seems to be the default, using
values less than 5 increases the quality and file size. You can also try
grabbing your frames to the lossless bmp format by using the .bmp file
extension instead of .jpg when typing in your output file name - and
subsequent compress the bmp to jpg using your favorite jpg compression
