I want to re-encode a video "exactly like this one". Can I somehow export codecs and container settings from the example file and import them during the encoding process (except the obvious manual solution)?
I'm not copying the compression settings from the input file. There is LosslessCut for this (it also prevents the re-encoding at all). I want to take those settings them from an example file and apply them for re-encoding other files.
I want to achieve a full compatibility with videos taken by a particular camera. Including the ability to play them by that camera (of course, it's decoder is hard-coded and lacks compatibility), and merging the videos from that camera with re-encoded ones losslessly (so LosslessCut must take both camera videos and re-encoded ones as exactly the same format).
