    Suggested Bit Rates for Multi-Bitrate Streaming?

    mrwizzer2 Community Member

      A couple of years back, when we started using Flash Media Server, we established a company policy of exporting all videos at 75, 150 and 400 kbps in the hopes of making sure our Flash videos were broadly accessible to users connecting at varying connection speeds. 


      Now that Broadband has become more commonplace in the years since, I'm wondering if anyone has a tried and true suggestion for which bit rates to make available these days to make sure users get the best experience they can.


      Is topping out at 400kbps too low by today's standards?  (I'm guessing it may be a bit conservative these days).


      Any suggestions are appreciated.
