Hi Yosuke,

Welcome.
Quality will always suffer when you re-encode an MPEG-1 (or MPEG-2) again to it's own format. You shouldn't re-encode MPEG-1. This is not a KVCD issue, as you will also get poor quality if you re-encode with any template or encoder. Unless you use a very high bit rate, and then that voids the whole purpose, because your target size will be larger than the source, with no gain in quality.
