When I create a video using the Video Demo mode, Captivate allows me to select bitrate settings. Because we have very limited bandwidth at some of our locations, I tried selecting the lowest possible bitrate of 0.19 Mbps as the Target and Maximum bitrate.
I inserted the finished MP4 file as a Progressive video into a .cptx Captivate file. I published the result as a flash file - basically using the flash file as a player for the MP4 file. When I tested it at one of our locations, it did not download at the 0.19 speed, it consumed the entire bandwidth available.
What did I do wrong? Am I missing the ability to transcode to a selected speed? Is Captivate just encoding the MP4, but not transcoding it to control the bandwidth consumption?
This is way more than I know - I'm used to encoding a video and then uploading it to a service that transcodes it to the maximum bitrate of the encoded video. However, I cannot use streaming video for this project.
