Who this free seminar is for: No matter which encoding tool you use, or which compression technology, you have two decisions to make; bitrate control method and key frame interval, both of which can dramatically impact video quality and the smoothness of delivery. This seminar is for producers who want help understanding how and when to use bitrate control techniques like constant (CBR) and variable bitrate encoding (VBR), and how to choose the optimal key frame interval for their encoded videos.
I'll be producing the webinar on YouTube's live streaming service, which is a first for me. If you've not seen a live event on YouTube, or are curious to see how the service performs as a platform for webinars, it's your chance to get a look.
What it covers:
-- The seminar starts by detailing how CBR and VBR work and when to use each technique.
-- Then it explains the various configuration controls for these techniques in popular encoding programs and how to optimize their settings for your encoded video.
-- It next defines what key frames are, how they work, and how to choose a keyframe interval for single file and adaptive streaming.
-- It touches upon the difference between key frames and IDR frames, and how to choose an IDR interval.
-- The seminar concludes with a look at how keyframe and IDR settings are presented in popular encoding tools.
What you will learn: You will learn how and when to use VBR and CBR and how to set the IDR and key frame intervals.
