We teach online classes many of which are third world nations. They email us and say many get hammered on data rates $ and so they are limited to how much they can stream. Our lessons are free but their streaming is not.
I do not really understand bit rate on their end of the issue.
Question: I rendered one file 2 times 5000 KB/s one 1080 and one 720. I thought the 720 would be substantially smaller, NOT!
1080 = 1,273,150 KB
720 = 1,195,947 KB
I concluded frame size is not so much their problem.
So I assume then I need to reduce 5000KB/s ? Yes/No?
If that is the case to maintain as much quality as possible should I use 1080 with Lower KB/s or reduced KB/s and 720 . Will lowering the KB/s lower their data consumption?
We use black & white boards for teaching so we need video as clear as possible.
Or is there another way to "skin the cat" with lower data rate and as good of quality, knowing many of these people will not have the latest and greatest technology available
