Suggestion: livestreaming bitrate / quality controls

[ New ]

I have found that my GoPro 7 Black livestreaming does not provide sufficient quality controls for most hobbyist situations.

I frequently want to reduce my bitrate in order to support live events and poor network conditions. Currently the GoPro 7 Black uses a bitrate that climbs up to over 4000 kbit/s. This is undesirable for my budget and sometimes results in dropped frames.


In the Go Live wizard it would be great if I could set a maximum bitrate for my broadcast. Something as simple as a "limited bandwidth" setting which limits the upload to something like 2200 kbit/s for 720p or 1200 kbit/s for 480p would be very helpful.
