4Configure your Audio Settings

In the audio tab of your Barix Instreamer portal, you will find several audio settings that will modify the audio output of your stream, such as the input source, audio format and bitrate. You can adjust these settings to your specific requirements or leave them as they are.

Note: You should choose your bitrate based on your audience. If your audience is mainly dial-up users, broadcast at 24 to 32kbps. For Cable or DSL users, broadcast at 56 to 128kbps. We normally don't recommend broadcasting at bitrates higher than 128kbps. Note: Most CD quality Audio is encoded at 128kbps. Broadcasting at a higher bitrate will only waste your allocated bandwidth.
