Yeah, it's a tar file of the rest of the jpegs. :)
Anyway, there's a lossy colorspace conversion from YUV 4:4:4 to 4:2:0
that happens before the encoding, even with lossless jpeg. Still, that
difference is nearly imperceptible to me, so I'm guessing that you're
doing something else to lose the quality. If you can't get better
results from what RC posted, then you'll have to post the command line
you're using so we can see what you can do differently.
