Join Tom Green for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring bitrate, part of Up and Running with HTML5 Video.
When I was first starting out on the web, one of the best pieces of advice I was…ever given was handed to me by Helen Curtis.…Keep an eye on the pipe. When it comes to HTML 5 video, the pipe,…bandwidth is the difference between the user being able to watch the video and…enjoy the experience. Or the user ripping his or her hair out as…the video stutters along. How to avoid that is the subject of this…video, and a great way to start understanding this concept is to visit a waterfall.…Think of the water cascading over the edge of the waterfall as being your video data.…
That water actually gathers in a pool before it falls over the edge.…And when the video plays that pool is the buffer and the stream into that pool is…the pipe. If the pool empties because there is a…clog in the pipe, the water stops flowing. Then the poll refills, and the water…starts flowing again. Video that starts and stops and we've all…had this experience is just like this waterfall.…The buffer empties and everything grinds to a standstill until it refills.…
