Please help me with the settings ! I drop a DJ mix (xxx.mp3 150 MB with artwork - 1 hour) with a still picture into Shotcut, select ‘Youtube’ and export the video but it save me a 7 GB .mp4 file (with a distorded/saturated sound with PotPlayer - OK in VLC)…!
How to conserve the original mp3 sound (no re encoding if possible) and only add the still picture for a rapid encoding and light file size.
Writing MP3 audio into an MP4 container with ffmpeg creates a file that is not playable with some media players. For highest quality audio, change the audio format to lossless (ALAC for MP4) which would be as good as no re-encoding. Otherwise, choose AAC or AC-3 for compressed audio.
Thanks but if I choose Alac or Flac I get an ‘aborded’ message when I try to export…
I still wonder then what are the settings to get the ‘video’ with a still image and a mp3 file with a reasonable file size…
Here is what I try to achieve (was done with a web service which no longer exist) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sioI4NfF_o0&t=2851s
Thanks, I tried ‘default’ and indeed I have a .mp4 file with reasonable size BUT I have no image !
In my original .mp3 file there is an artwork embedded which I see in Shotcut but it doesn’t appear in the video… Can I put manually the artwork .jpg in Shotcut somewhere ?
