Feature Request | Create settings out of media file

Aug 15, 2014 at 12:53 PM
I don't even know if its possible or how much work it would be to pogramm following feature. So please forgive in case I do ask for to much:

Could you think about "reading" the settings out of an existing media file? Following Scenario: I do have episode 1 of a tv show from somewhere and I would like to copmplete the entire tv-show in same quality and size. Could vidcoder in future analyze the first episode-file and create a Preset out of these Information. I could reencode the rest of the Show identical using this Preset.

btw. ... your VidCoder is just a great program. Thank you for your work and effort.

Greetings from Germany.

The settings used to encode a file are just not possible to find by examining it. So this feature is not possible. Also even if you were to find the settings used, it wouldn't result in the same quality output file, since if you use a low bitrate to encode you lose quality with every encode.

But thank you! Glad you like VidCoder.
