    Lightbulb Some bugs and suggestions

    Using version 1.7 (latest as of 06 19 2020)

    When converting videos from MKV to MP4 (copy no encoding), if you have the DSP Effect Delete Source File on, if you stop the conversion halfway through, dBpoweramp Video Converter will delete the original file and leave the partially-converted file.

    Suggestion: Stop DSP effects from continuing if the video conversion is interrupted


    When converting videos from MKV to MP4 (copy no encoding), if there is a DTS XL track or DTS Master audio track and an AC3 track, dBpoweramp Video Converter will select the lower-quality AC3 track instead of the higher-quality DTS Master or DTS XL track

    Suggestion: Keep whichever audio track has the highest bitrate

    Suggestion: When converting videos from MKV to MP4 (copy no encoding), and using Audio Stream: Re-encode to AAC, verify the track with the highest bitrate is being used, that way you'll be converting from say, a DTS Master track vs the AC3 640kbps track


    When converting videos from MKV to MP4 (copy no encoding), and using Audio Stream: Re-encode to AAC, if the track is DTS Master stereo (2.0) this track gets converted to 128kbps. In intense music such as Blood Machines, encoding artifacts are clearly audible due to the low bitrate

    Suggestion: If the audio track is Stereo and over 192KBPS (standard for stereo AC3), or DTS, encode stereo to a higher bitrate but less than the original


    When converting videos from MKV to MP4 (copy no encoding), and using Audio Stream: Re-encode to AAC, and the original audio stream is AC3 at 384 KBPS (standard on DVD), AAC is encoding at 394KBPS.

    Suggestion: If AC3 track is under 448 Kbps, ensure AAC bitrate is set to less than the original AC3 track

    Thanks again so much for an amazing piece of software! Only thing really missing is the ability to have an Image Sequence as input, but that's also covered under the manual CLI
