Setting the max bitrate for live streaming

[ New ]

Is it possible to set the max bitrate for live streaming? Right now it seems to be capped pretty low, even when I'm wifi streaming to my own RTMP service.

The bitrate is automatic I believe, although you are correct, the upper rate is low for livestreaming, around 4Mb/s.  There is no Labs hack to change this.

Can there be one? :)

 

I would hazard a guess that this is some constant coded somewhere, it would be nice if this could be upped. I'm streaming over wifi, it's a shame the camera quality is so much worse than the recorded version. I don't mind the variable bitrate so much as the very low max bitrate.
