Video Bitrate config value


#1

HI,
I tried to change “Video Bitrate” config value (in features of cam) and nothing happened. Is this value useful for something?

Thanks
Josef

Hi Josef!
I assume, you change “Video Bitrate” option in “Live Video Stream Encoder” section.
If you access live stream via web client or open live stream url in VLC player - you will see that changing this setting affects video quality.
Lower setting - e.g. 60 kbps looks blurry and pixelated, higher like 600 kbps - looks neatly with high resolution.
Thank you!

Hi,

sorry I forgor to say it’s File Recording section.
I can set low / high value and recorded video is the same quality. But I can use “quality” config value

Thanks

It looks like it really ignores bitrate during record - CRF setting has priority.
