View Full Version : [Feature Request] Convert - preserve existing

10-18-2020, 10:29 PM
It would be nice to have an option for "Convert to same quality" or "Preserve existing" or whatever that would apply the existing bitrate, color depth etc settings to the new format as exist in the current file.

I tried just using Lossless, such as when converting a WMV to an MP4, but the file size went from just over 200K to north of two MB. Ie 10 times larger.

The idea being that I want to change file format, not resolution, bit rate or anything else, ie without losing any info in the process. Is this at all feasible?

In practice it would be hard to achieve, as each format handles quality differently. WMA at a certain bit rate is not equal to H264
