Max Stream Settings

Resolution: 1080p/2K or smaller.

Video up to 2048x2048 is permitted, including 1080p (1920x1080) video. Video larger than this is considered non-standard.

Bitrate: 8Mbps or below.

While Mux accepts high bitrate inputs, bitrates higher than 8Mbps are generally challenging for most viewer's connections, and need to be compressed for streaming.

Frame rate: between 10 and 120.

Video with average frames per second (fps) less than 10 or greater than 120 is considered non-standard. Video framerates within this range will be preserved. Video with less than 10 fps or greater than 120 fps will be normalized to 30 fps.
