Wix Video: Live Stream Settings, Resolution, Bitrates and Codecs

1 min read
To get the best streaming results, make sure you don't exceed the following settings on your encoder:
  • Video Resolution: 720p (1280x720)
  • Codec: x264
  • Video bitrate: ~2500 kb\s
  • Audio bitrate: AAC 44.1kHz ~128kbps
The output needs to be set to 'Simple'. If it set to 'Advanced' it can cause issues with the live stream.

To change your streaming settings:

  1. Open the OBS Studio Encoder on your computer.
  2. Click Settings on the bottom right.
  3. Select the Output tab to change the codec, audio and video bitrates.
  4. Select the Video tab to change the video resolution.
  • If your internet bandwidth is less than 3000 kb/s, reduce the video and audio bitrates so that the sum fits your bandwidth.
  • A general rule is to have double the bandwidth for your target bitrate. This is to help ensure you maintain your bandwidth during internet fluctuations.
