The default bitrate is 1 Mbit per second. We recommend this for most videos. If the quality of the converted video is not as good as it should be, use the Recreate button to select a higher bitrate. Do keep in mind that the quality and bitrate of your original video are very important. If you upload a video that has a bitrate of 1 Mbit/s, selecting a higher bitrate will not make any difference.
A few things to keep in mind regarding bitrates:
- The higher the bitrate, the larger the size of the video file.
- The higher the bitrate, the longer it takes to convert your video file
To give you an idea of what bitrates are used for different types of video:
