My original MP4 audio file size is 7626KB.
After saving with Mp3tag, with no changes made to file, file size is decreased to 7184KB (loss 442KB, which is pretty big for an audio file).

Can you explain what was lost in 442KB after saving with Mp3tag?
In the future releases, could Mp3tag keep the file original (with no loss of size) after saving with it?

  • This happens with every MP4 audio file
  • With some other tag editors, MP4 file is still original (7626KB)

Only empty space (padding) is removed. The files are about 5% bigger than needed.
I don't think there will be an option for that.
