Transcoding Clips due to VFR, Samsung S21Settings?

Sometimes I want to use videos I shoot with my phone a Samsung S21 Ultra and not my regular Sony FDR-X3000 video camera.

When I add my S21 videos to Kdenlive I get a popup asking that I “Transcode Clip”, “The following clips are not usable for editing…” Then it gives me a list of options to convert the file.

My question is there a way to change my phone’s camera settings to shoot videos without variable frame rate so I don’t have to transcode each time? If not which which of the options should I use to convert in Kdenlive without losing video quality or sound?

My setup:
Kdenlive Version 23.08.0
Thinkpad Laptop running Windows 11 Pro
Samsung S21 Ultra 5G, using Factory Camera App for Video

Thank you

Running into the same issue with Samsung S23 on a Linux machine.

this is why they are called smartphones and not cameraphones
i’m also using cheaper S8 S9 S10 to take videos but for what i know who uses CRT uses also not-so-smart photo cameras.

BTW… using VFR can de-sync audio/video … if you think that audio can be not related to images (music… comments… merge of clips ) you can just not transcode.

opened an issue here: Can be added a "lossless" transcoding using Nvidia GPU? (#1794) · Issues · Multimedia / Kdenlive · GitLab
about this… hope a lossless conversion can be added on the near future
