    Hi HH55,

    We did just find a problem with the Video bitrate slider and have fixed it. This fix will produce different results in your tests. This fix will be included in upcoming release due out in the next few days.

    Here's an explanation how the Video bitrate slider works in Mezzmo:

    • You set the type of network connection that you are streaming to your DLNA device on the Device Settings dialog (General page) for your device. For example, if you are streaming using wireless N to your DLNA device from your computer, then set the Connection field on the Device Settings dialog (General page) to 'Wireless N'. This setting is important when transcoding, so it is recommended to choose the right type of network connection that you have.
    • Mezzmo will limit the maximum video bitrate when transcoding videos to the (real-world) bandwidth limit of the connection type that you have chosen. This applies to both transcoding on-the-fly and pre-transcoding. The video bitrate of the transcoded videos will not exceed the (real-world) bandwidth of your home network & this should produce stutter-free streaming.
    • The Video bitrate slider on the Device Settings dialog (Performance page) provides additional video bitrate control, whereby it can be used to reduce the maximum video bitrate further - particularly in the case that your home network connection is not performing optimally. For example, your wireless connection may not have full signal strength to your computer or DLNA device, or your home network may have congestion problems.
    • The Video bitrate slider steps by increments of 10% - starting from 10% (on left) to 100% (on right). The default setting is 100%. The percentage value selected is applied to the (real-world) bandwidth limit of the connection type you have chosen. For example, if your home network uses 1Gb Ethernet cables, then you would choose 'Gigabit Ethernet Cable' as the Connection type. However, if you found that your home network's bandwidth was not optimal (due to congestion, etc.) , then you could move the Video bitrate slider to (say) 60%. This means the maximum allowed video bitrate for any transcoded video would be 60% of (real-world) bandwidth limit of a Gigabit Ethernet cable, and this may stream better on your home network.
