Default Re: Audio help

Stereo is where the left and right channels are encoded separately. This is the best setting but will be a bigger file.

Joined Stereo is where the small audible differences between the L & R channels is ignored. The larger differences between the channels is kept. (Mainly on the mid to high frequency content) This results in a smaller file but you will loose some of the stereo separation.

Hope I explained that properly.

Agreed.

I mean were talking MP3 files here which are small so go with the 'Stereo' setting.
