I've stumbled upon a strange issue. I've uploaded the exact same file to two different Cloudinary accounts, and when I download it using the same transformation settings on both accounts, the resulting file is different. One of them is a lot more compressed than the other.
Here's the exact same mp3 file on the two different accounts:
But when the exact same transformations are applied, in this case with quality set to 80, the output is not the same:
One of them is 2.2 mb after the transform, and the other is 3mb.
There are a few other strange things going on as well. For instance, changing the quality parameter to different values does not seem to have any impact what so ever on the file size - it's the same file output no matter the setting.
