Thanks for the free app. It would be awesome if the user was able to choose what audio and subtitle tracks to keep with the output, instead of automatically keeping the ones with foreign language; it would be good to have at least a select all option to check for this subject. When the screen goes off the app pause the process and just continues when turning screen on again, it would be great if you fix this issue; this happens while the app isn't in system power optimization plan black list.

Every video compression app seems to have the same issue because they are using a bad compression method. Like you guys or someone needs to step up, when there's a lot of movement the video quality just dips, even in HD. It looks too blurry and it has too many artifacts. Constant Britate is not the way to go, go for Constant Rate Factor or at least Variable Bitrate (Variable Bitrate being more common in computers and less complex)

The video transcoding is great, but it's a terrible app to use. The interface to find a video file to load has no thumbnail, filtering or ability to sort. A few useful features like that and it'd easily be a 5 star app
