How easily can users set up and manage multiple bitrate and quality levels for broadcasting with AzuraCast
When creating an online radio station using AzuraCast, many users may wonder “Does AzuraCast support broadcasting with multiple bitrates or quality levels?”. The answer is yes! With the right setup, users can create different streaming formats of their web radio station, making it possible to reach more listeners.
The first step in setting up multiple bitrates or quality levels is to have multiple audio encoders. AzuraCast supports streaming from multiple encoders at once, allowing users to easily create multiple formats. For example, two popular encoders are MP3 at 128 kbps or higher, and AAC-LC at 64kbps or higher.
The next step is to configure streams properly in AzuraCast. In the web-based settings of the platform, users can configure the encoder type, bitrate, sample rate and other details. With this, the web radio is able to stream from each encoder in different formats.
Finally, AzuraCast also supports more advanced configurations such as “fallback” or “primary” streams. With this, users can configure a “primary” audio stream that will be used in most cases, but a “fallback” stream will be used if the primary stream fails for any reason. This way, users can guarantee listeners will have an uninterrupted listening experience no matter the circumstances.
