    What is a good bitrate for my video (mp4 website embed)?

    jack53421

      I'm trying to encode some music videos with PE to embed on my website as mp4 (streaming with jw player).

       

      How do I figure out a bit rate for maximum quality yet no buffering delays.  I should probably assume some of my viewers will have relatively slow 1mb dsl connections.

       

      From what I understand, these are good settings:

      share>computer:  Quicktime/.mov

       

      Video Tab

      *Video Codec: H.264

      *Quality: 100

      *Field Type: Progressive

      *Pixel Aspect Ratio: square

      *Set Bitrate: checked

       

      Audio Tab

      *Audio Code: AAC

      *Output Channels: Stereo

      *Frequency: 44kHz

       

      My video dimensions are either 560x315 or 600x334. 

      I saw in another thread that 8000kbps bitrate is good for a 720p youtube encode, though that obviously makes a huge file for website streaming.  Been trying to figure it out, but very confused. Thanks for any suggestions!
