I suspect you meant MPEG2.
But is this a situation where ffmpeg is intelligently picking a bitrate based on the characteristics of the video, or is it defaulting to a low bitrate, given the user hasn't specified one? In the latter case it may make sense for the the user to specify a higher bitrate.
