What you're talking about doing is expanding mpeg - that is at best 1/3 the size of the orginal video - and then crunching it back down to the 1/3 size mpeg again.

It really goes without saying - you're going to lose a considerable amount of quality.

I can help you out, but not with all of them - I have too many projects in the hopper. If you want to send one or two of them to me, I'll reauthor it with the alternate audio, and I won't re-encode the video.

PM me if interested.
