Xeenon supports up to 8000kbps bitrate

  • Bitrate is the number of bits that you're able to process in a given unit of time. It is measured in kilobits per second (Kbps). A higher bitrate allows for a better quality stream, but also requires more bandwidth.

  • Low Quality (480p): For a standard definition stream, a bitrate range of 800 Kbps to 1.2 Mbps is typically sufficient.

  • Medium Quality (720p): For high-definition, the bitrate should ideally be between 1.5 to 3 Mbps.

  • High Quality (1080p): For full HD, aim for a bitrate in the range of 3.5 Mbps to 5 Mbps.

  • Ultra-High Quality (4K): 4K support is experimental and will require a bitrate of up to 8 Mbps.

  • Remember, the bitrate you choose should depend on your bandwidth availability. Always set your bitrate as a factor of not only the resolution but also of your internet upload speed.

    • A good rule of thumb is to not exceed a bitrate that is 25% of your max internet upload speed. This will protect against any temporary intermittence and keep your stream as smooth as possible for the audience.

    • For example, if your max upload speed is 20 mbps, it is best to not exceed 5000kbps (5mbps) bitrate.

      • A wired connection is recommended, but not necessary when live streaming. Sticking to the recommendation above should allow you to live stream via WiFi, unless your upload speeds are inconsistent.
