Video quality with old HS setup

Hi everyone! Looking for advice on using EmuMovies with Hyperspin (or vice versa). I've been using an old version of Hyperspin in a cabinet for MAME only for quite a few years now. Just recently I decided that instead of traditional themes I'd just use HyperTheme to create my own themes, which would essentially be to just have the preview video snap fill the entire screen. Now that the videos are full screen instead of small, some of them look kinda blurry and/or not of the highest frame rate.
 
This is an old version of Hyperspin that uses FLV files. I paid for a new subscription to EmuMovies, downloaded all new high quality MP4's for all my roms, then used the old video converter I once downloaded from EmuMovies to convert them to FLV's. This didn't really result in any improvement in video quality, though when I watch the MP4's themselves they look nice.
 
Is the video converter perhaps not creating high quality FLV's? Or is there something inherent in the FLV format or maybe in the old Hyperspin that keeps the videos from looking as good as their MP4 sources? I don't really want to upgrade to the newest/current Hyperspin in order to use MP4's if that would be tough for a technology-challenged old guy like me. Any thoughts or advice are appreciated.

FLV is pretty much an old, dead Flash format. I rarely ever see it anymore. It was only ever used because of the small file sizes and on Youtube back in the day. You're not going to get good quality video going from mp4 to flv no matter what unfortunately.

I know it may seem daunting but you really should update your Hyperspin setup along with RocketLauncher. You can always seek help along the way on HS and Rocketlauncher forums. People also post tutorials nowadays you could follow on Youtube.
