Bitrate Seems Low

Post by Couchy123 »

I see bitrate for 192khz 24bit can go up to 9216kbps, The album I'm testing is showing less than 3,000 bitrate. I also tested a seperate song that is nearer 5,000, I just wondered if this is normal and it varies from each song? I have it set up to my dac on alsa which asound is showing its set up to recieve 192khz quality.

Hello,
What guayadeque shows is what Gstreamer gives for the stream bitrate. See https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/docum ... AG_BITRATE

Do I need to configure gstream to get the optimum bitrate or is it just a number shown by gstreams tag?

I think it depends on the encoding and what may happen is that its giving an average value and not peak.

aah yes I think you're right as it level out towards the end of the song. So the bitrate I'm seeing is not lower than what other users experience?
