I've tried Mpeg-2, avi, and mov and regardless of the options I choose I can't seem to get the same quality out of the converted file.  Here are the results of my last try.  I also don't understand the Error while decoding stream message at the end.  The output seems to have all of the file in it.

Try this command:

ffmpeg -y -i input.flv -vcodec mpeg2video -qscale 2.0 -aspect 1.85
-async 1 -ac 2 -ab 224000 -ar 44100 output.mpg
