DirectShow based video conversion (e.g. from MKV to MPEG2) will
typically not support 2-pass encoding, resulting in inferior picture
quality in any case. Sorry, but i guess we can not recommend this method.
Anyhow, we are looking at a new program called MediaCoder
(http://mediacoder.sf.net) based on Linux' mencoder, allowing for great
flexibility and perfect quality.
