so I use Xmedia to crop and select etc the videos and do not want JA to tamper with it afterwards = each individual video I have to remember manually to tick do not re-encode?. I forget sometimes and that messes up my 'system' and takes too much space/processing-time for my liking
Is there a way to make an general JA preference ALLWAYS to have ticked any video dragged in w do not re-encode?? (or at least at album level = settings?). I have not found such general option - but I might be blind
yes thanks that helps for single album project- was just not thinking about entering resolution to get to no re-encoding

just tried it as you suggested = this method may work under album creation (not done a make yet) - but does NOT add the icon on video (and when entering options the tick box for do not re-encode is empty??!!) = I better safe than sorry so I still go in now and tick all boxes.
Think your proposed procedure should be more transparent in use =auto icon/ticking boxes, so I am never in doubt if re-encode will happen or not
If this is a general need for your whole project, why don't you set the video "resolution" setting globally to "Do not re-encode" under Settings - Videos ?
Yes, that works.
But now how can I use that to provide a processed video on the slide page, to keep the size down, but still let the visitor download the original full HD video?
(...he asked, already knowing the answer. )
Ah, one of those items that's been on your wish list for years, to provide the same linking options for videos as for images. With this in mind, you can at least tell André that I don't fulfill all your wishes in a snap
