When I use AirDrop to send photos from iPhone 8, iPhone X and iPhone 12 (regardless of iOS system) to my 2017 macbook pro (High Sierra),
sharingd automatically converts the HEVC video into AVC format. I don't need this as HEVC is basically supported on all of my (and other people I know) devices, especially considering that this transcoding process takes longer than the actual transmission.
I have already selected the "Keep Originals" for the "Transfer to Mac or PC" option in iPhone setting.
Is it possible for me to disable this behavior?
Edit: This no longer happens on my new m1 MBP, nor does it happen in macOS Monterey on my old 2017 MBP. I guess High Sierra is still considered an old system and therefore HEVC is not fully supported.
