How to Encode your Video Files Properly Before you Upload to the RTMP Server
For most users, it is important to ensure the encoded videos are capped to a maximum bitrate.
We recommend transcoding all files with HandBrake.fr video transcoder before you upload your files.
Select Tools -> Preferences and set:
MP4 File Extension: Always use MP4
Also set your Default output path
We recommend a Preset of either:
Vimeo Youtube 720p
Video Youtube HQ 1080p
Setting a bitrate is important to ensure your TV Station does not exceed the bitrate limit.
It is normal for the encoding bitrate to fluctuate about 10% so make sure to set the Avg Bitrate lower than your limit.
Press Browse and then set the path where you want your transcoded files to be saved.
Select Add to Queue -> Add All
Press Start Encode
Drag and drop the media files from your PC to the Media File Manager
