You did not use any quality option, use -crf to select 
constant quality (lower is better iirc).

Note that you are transcoding a very large file with 
a common codec (it is expected to play with wmp) into 
a slightly unusual codec that needs some cpu to decode 
in real time (very little cpu for today’s desktops, a 
lot of cpu for today’s mobile devices) in a container 
that is not well suited for h264.
