CBR (Constant Bitrate)

CBR, or Constant Bitrate, describes a method of encoding where the continuous bitrate of the video remains constant as it plays. This is in comparison to VBR, or Variable Bitrate encoding. CBR can be valuable in live streaming where dramatic changes in the bitrate of the stream could cause the player to fall behind and stall.
