Your question has already been answered here when you asked last time:
If the default conversion parameters provide too low quality for you,
you must change them. In your case, in order to get the _exact same_
characteristics, just make sure you copy the stream by adding:
 -c copy
 -c:v copy
(for preserving only the video).
