Bitrate problem on Compressor.
on May 2, 2014 at 8:53:07 pm


I am trying to compress a .mov file to a .mp4 primed for Vimeo.

I am trying to adhere to Vimeo's guidelines, which state that a 1280x720 video should ideally be 5,000 to 10,000 kbit/s. (

Now, when I send my video to Apple Compressor, and use the MP4 setting, it seems the maximum kbps is 2048 when i choose the 'constant' option. It does not state the bitrate when I choose the "High VBR" option however...

Why can it not got higher when I choose the constant option?

The original video is Apple Pro Res 422 and is 2.38GB.

Instead of using the Mp4 setting, go to Quicktime settings and choose H.264. There you will find the settings you need.
