mp3 Bit-Rate and Streaming
Posted on March 4, 2012
On my website I have a Demand Radio page with little Flash Player Buttons that play particular radio programs simply by pressing play. The radio programs are recorded in mp3 format with bit-rate 56kbps.
Today a listener reported trouble hearing a constant stream from that page, and it entered my mind that perhaps slower computers cannot sustain the 56kbps bit-rate….. my old computer certainly wouldn’t do it…..
To experiment with this idea, I will change all the programs on that page tp 24-kbps and ask the listener to “try it now.”
It will be about two days.
Comments are welcome.
