Apologies if this is an obvious/newbie question...

 

During playback on a (hardwired) Apple TV or older FireStick, I will frequently have issues with the video stuttering, or flat out pausing randomly.  So far, reducing the maximum bitrate seems to have fixed the problem.

 

My question is, is there a down-side to reducing the max bitrate?  Does a lower bitrate translate to lower video quality?

 

Thanks!

If you cannot tell by viewing it then, not in any meaningful way :).
