Resolution & Bitrate Guide

For more information on balancing quality and latency, please see this blog post.

Recommended Bitrates per Resolution

The following recommendations correspond with a standard framerate of 24 or 30fps.

ResolutionMaximum (kbps)Recommended (kbps)Minimum (kbps)
240p (426x240)700400300
360p (640x360)1000750400
480p (854x480)20001000500
720p (1280x720)400025001500
1080p (1920x1080)600045003000

For 2K or 4K streaming with 30fps:

ResolutionRecommended (Mbps)
1440p or "2K" (2560x1440)6 to 10mbps
4K (3849x2160)10-25mbps

For 2K or 4K streaming with 60fps:

ResolutionRecommended (Mbps)
1440p or "2K" (2560x1440)16mbps
4K (3849x2160)35-465mbps

Note: if you broadcast a high-resolution stream with a low bitrate and/or framerate, then the quality of the stream will drop significantly, and some browsers may resize the subscriber video.
