Adaptive Bitrate


What is adaptive bitrate and how do I enable it?



Our adaptive bitrate feature allows the publisher to detect the best bitrate that the subscriber can handle in order to provide for the smoothest streaming experience.  This will allow the publishing client to adjust to the available bandwidth and send the highest possible quality. When using Adaptive Bitrate Publishing in Red5 Pro, the R5Configuration.bitrate property becomes the highest bitrate the publisher attempts to use.  You will want to make that number high if you would like those with better networks to get the best experience.   

To enable this feature, please see our examples for iOS and Andriod

Please note: For the best quality you need to set the resolution to an appropriate size for the bitrate setting you’ve chosen.
