“File size = bitrate (kilobits per second) x duration”, so if you want to generate a file with small file size, simply adjust the video bit rate to a lower value. However, to ensure a good playback quality on your device, you’d better set the video bitrate to a value not lower than 2,000 kbps.

Step 3: If necessary, you can click “Settings” to modify video and audio parameters like encoder, resolution, frame rate, bitrate, aspect ratio, sample rate, and audio channels. You can also “enable 3D Settings” to add 3D effect to your source media.

Step 4: Click “Convert” to start creating optimal files for S8 Plus
As soon as the conversion is complete, click “Open Folder” to get the generated AAC MP4 files that are suitable for playing on your S8 Plus. No audio lost issues will occur any more.
