View Full Version : What Bitrate...

Are your files encoded at?
I know 98% of my files are at 192 kbps, and IT REALLY MAKES THE DIFFERENCE!

256kbps 44kHz stereo

mostly 192. 192kbps broadcasted at 128kbps definately sounds better then 128kbps broadcasted at 128kbps.
mine are 192. Broadcasting at 128 and 24.

mostly 128 wma files.

does the original bitrate make a difference in the STREAM quality? I won't think so (b/c it gets re-encoded)... What do you think?

Yes it does. Especially if your source mp3s are encoded at a less bitrate than your target stream.
For example, try listen to a 128kbps stream sourced with 56kbps mp3s.

Well, of course, but how about a 128kbps stream sourced with 128kbps mp3s?

I believe the higher the source bitrate, the better quality the re-encoded stream will be.

Wouldn't it be "easier" on the stream to broadcast at the original source mp3 bitrate (so it doesn't have to re-encoded)...or does it not work like that?

dont work. say if you broadcast a 128kbps mp3 on a 128kbps stream. it will still re-encode it. no matter what, the dsp will always re-encode what you play.
