Video Encoding Settings

The best method to deliver streaming video to audience worldwide is in multiple bitrates and resolutions. Playback quality depends on the viewer connection to the internet and type of device they use. Most social media sites and streaming services support "adaptive bitrate" technology: during playback the stream adjusts to the viewer capability to receive low to high quality video. Before configuring a live stream, confirm what's the bitrate and resolution set by your target endpoint (example: YouTube accepts 4K video up to 50 Mbps*, but Facebook Live limits the stream to 720p at a maximum of 4 Mbps). When streaming to social media sites (with the exception of Periscope), we recommend sending a 720p stream to Videolinq and distributing the same stream to all endpoints.
