Hi, I have several videos that have been submitted to our Film Festival, and I do not know the Bit Rate, aspect ratio, or Fps. (The filmmakers who submit content to our Fest know video particulars when they do their own editing. But when they hire a video editor...all bets are off.)
So, I plan to first use a XML feed, and submit the MRSS to DP. I plan to use DFP or another svc for VAST adverts. Sometime in the future I'll convert the feed to JSON so that we may monetize with midroll ad-breaks.
My question is...can I guesstimate the bitrate? Or may I use a moderate bitrate like 1000Kbps or perhaps would a generic number "0" work?? (This is not an HLS stream, a typical film will look like this on our feed: http://some-random-video-cdn.com/mymovie.mp4)
I don't think it matters, unless there is a format limitation that needs it. It's probably good practice to at least get it close to the actual bitrate, but I don't think it makes much difference on DP.
