video/audio passthrough

A.J. Oct 27, 2014 07:52PM CDT

Is is possible to add an option for passthrough (i.e. no re-encoding)? It'd be useful if you're just trying to re-wrap a clip (from mkv to mp4, for example) without decompressing and recompressing it, or changing the audio format of a file without changing the video content.

I second this! Very helpful tool. iFFMPEG has this capability, but it's sadly missing from Adapter

Yes please, just touching the audio and passing through the video data would be greatly appreciated!

Video passthrough with
Audio > AAC 192

In the Adapter console:
> "/Users/username/Library/Application Support/Adapter/ffmpeg" '-i' 'inputmovie.mkv' '-c:v' 'copy' '-c:a' 'aac' '-ab' '192k' '-ac' '2' '-async' '1' '-strict' 'experimental' 'outputmovie.mkv' '-threads' '0'

Hope this helps :)

The manual cmd works but it is not elegant.
We just need a pass-through option from the drop-down list. Is it too difficult?
