Chromecast playback limits not respected


Recommended Posts

Good Evening,


I am submitting this issue as I can't seem to find a way have the chromecast maximum bit-rate respected. There is an option in the web browser and the android client to specify the max bit-rate however it doesn't seem to actually pay attention to it. Below there is a screenshot where I have specified a max bit-rate as 3mbps and the server dashboard shows that it is trans-coding at 5.6mbps, the same happens from the web app on android and from the native android app. I have attached the full server lot and some of the relevant trans-coding logs.


Please let me know if there is anything else that I can submit to assist.

Hi, I just tested this with no problem found. Worked just fine. The important thing is you have to set it from the app that is performing the casting. Is it not enough to set it in the web app and then go cast from Android.


Please let us know if this helps. Thanks !

I have specifically set it in each app I tried. Is there any more information I can provide or perhaps something I can try?


To confirm now I set the limit to 1mbps and the file is direct playing at 2.4mbps
