I have an Intel based system, (2) dual core 3.0GHz Xeon processors, 4GB of RAM.
I currently use Flix Pro to encode our videos. I am looking to get higher quality video & audio @ lower bitrates. Our videos seem to be limited to 300 total bitrate (260 video, 40 audio) & 15 fps to be played on an older Pentium 3 system 451 Mhz processor, 256 MB RAM, wireless, cable modem. Higer bitrates make the video play choppy, but @ the 300 bitrate, the video is comparable to YouTube quality.
History.com provides higher quality video on the Pentium 3 machine, how do they do it?
Do they use a different encoder, like Kulabyte?
Or do I just need to have the correct settings in Flix Pro?
Here are the seetings we are using...
480x360 output dimensions
260 maximum video bitrate
20,050 Hz audio
cropped to 704x480 (4:3 aspect ratio)
"Good" quality VP62, 75% CPU
