    44== When should I transcode audio? ==
    55
    6 Avoid transcoding from lossy to lossy if possible. Transcode to lossy from the lossless source (if you have it) or just don't transcode by copying the lossy source audio track.
     6Avoid transcoding from lossy format to another lossy format if possible. Transcode to lossy from the lossless source (if you have it) or just don't transcode by copying the lossy source audio track, instead.

    88== Generation loss ==
    99
    10 Transcoding from a lossy format like MP3, AAC, Vorbis, Opus, WMA, etc. to the same or different lossy format might degrade the audio quality even if the bitrate stays the same (or higher). This quality degradation might not be audible to you but it might be audible to others.[[BR]]
     10Transcoding from a lossy format like [[Encoding VBR (Variable Bit Rate) mp3 audio|MP3]], [[AACEncodingGuide|AAC]], Vorbis, Opus, WMA, etc. to the same or different lossy format might degrade the audio quality even if the bitrate stays the same (or higher). This quality degradation might not be audible to you but it might be audible to others.[[BR]]
