Adaptive Bitrate Client Target Calculation

Question

Hello,

I'm wondering how client target for adaptive bit-rate is calculated. I have some clients who I know have much stronger internet connections reporting targets that are quite low

I can't seem to get a WebRTC stream over 2.3Mbps to a client

Also, is it possible to set higher bit-rates for HLS streams than WebRTC streams? Would love to be able to set a lower bit-rate for WebRTC stream and a high bit-rate for HLS where it can buffer easier

Hi Matt,
The calculation is made by native side of WebRTC code and it may be lower than your expectation because of the UDP protocol. If you increase bitrate from source or adaptive settings it may also increase.

Actually, HLS also creates the incoming bitrate even if you add an adaptive setting.
