Here is an explanation about streamer, formats, and bitrates.

Streamer will do a couple of checks for the video before sending to toast:

1.) Is the video iPhone compliant.
2.) Is the video streamable
3.) Does the data rate of the file fit within the selected profile.

Select profile

In the streamer prefrences, on the advance tab, there is a setting for Video quality. This controls the maximum bitrate for videos allowed by streamer. This settings is also used by toast when converting for streamer. Streamer caps what the maximum bit rate allowed to stream and video will be re-encoded according to the settings. The maximum data rates allowed are:

* Low - 330 kbps Max
* Medium - 550 kbps Max
* High - 760 kbps Max

The toast exports for these settings are the following:

Low: Video - 320x180 @ 200kbps, Audio: AAC 96kbps mono
Medium: Video 480x360 @ 400 kbps, Audio: AAC 128kbps mono
High: Video 480x360 @ 600kbps, Audio AAC 128kps stereo

Again the most important thing for streamer is the data rate.
