High quality with low bitrate
Hello, long story short, I will stream to china, but the China's internet is vety unstable, when I stream above 1000 kbps they start to see buffering. so I don't want to exceed 1000 kbps stream. My wirecast encoder is nvidia h264, quality set to high, streaming canvas 720p, nvenc recording.
As you can see quality of the stream with these settings are not the prettiest. Is there anything I can do to raise the quality without increasing the bitrate? Thank you
You may need to experiment but you can use X.264 and slow the encoding. That will maintain the bit rate but you're going to use more CPU resources. You may want to compare it to NVENC. Hardware-assisted encoding generally gives you lower CPU use but it may not exceed the quality of X.264 at its slower settings. Test and check that if you have a very good processor.
