Live365 Feature Requests
At least up to 192 kbps bitrate
I would very much like to be able to broadcast at a higher bit rate than what we currently are able to.
"OPTION TO BROADCAST IN 320 KBPS" (suggested by steve reich on 2019-02-19), including upvotes (1) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.
I agree with this. I've been broadcasting at 256k MP3 for awhile now.
Or at least be able to use AAC.
Make no mistake about it, 192 - 320 kbps is far better than 128. This is one of the biggest complaints I have about live 365 is the sound quality.
AAC would be nice, I have songs that are at 320kbps
It would also be nice to have multiple streams at various bitrates and let the listeners pick which one they want.
128kps is currently the maximum encoding speed available for Live365, but the sound is not at all comparable to 320kps. I'd be willing to pay extra to have that available to me. I'd even be willing to trade out some other feature to have it.
"Add Premium Option of Broadcasting/encoding at 320kps" (suggested by Sam Crutchfield on 2020-05-13), including upvotes (1) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.
All Live 365 stations top out at 128kbps. I'd be willing to pay more for higher encoding quality.
"Offer higher kbps encoding/streaming option - 256 or 320" (suggested by Sam Crutchfield on 2020-05-30), including upvotes (1) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.
After having invested so much in a professional broadcast audio chain and then encode high-quality streams at 320k MP3/AAC I am a little disappointed the hard work is now downgraded by the 128k limitations. Would like to support the cause to have the ability to stream in higher quality.
i have to agree, i am coming for a site that offered 320 and it is so much better.
I, too, have heard from listeners who would like it best if we were in 320 ... as they are now experiencing HD Radio in other places. Even some YouTube vids are higher quality now. As of this writing (Sep. 2020) U2's channel, for instance, is going ALL Highest Possible Quality. I know a lot folks won't notice the difference. This is for the people who do notice.
