Question about transcoding when copying songs to a device
I need to know what happens when preferred format for a device matches the format the songs already have, but the quality/bitrate chosen in setting/transconding is different the quality/bitrate of those songs? For example, copying a mp3 song with 320kbps bitrate to a device that is set to always convert to mp3, but with 128kbps bitrate chosen in transcoding section of settings for mp3 files. Will the song be converted to an mp3 file with 128kbps bitrate, or will conversion be skipped since the file is already in mp3?
I'd appreciate it if anyone who knows could tell me. I've been trying to copy a whole lot of songs to a device with limited storage, and I needed to convert them to a lower quality. I tried copying a few songs with the aforementioned settings applied, but nothing was converted. So now I don't really know whether the issue is missing backed packages needed for converting files, or just how Strawberry music player is set to behave.
