Just started ffmpeg per your suggestion like so:

ffmpeg -i The_Previous_River_Trip.mp4  -s:v:1 1920x1080 -vcodec 
mpeg1video -q:v 1 -y The_Previous_River_Trip.mp4

and it is proceeding - but with a lot of messages like these:
warning, clipping 1 dct coefficients to -255..255:02:37.06 
[mpeg1video @ 0xa618f00] warning, clipping 1 dct coefficients to -255..255
