192kbps Bitrate

On todays podcast (25/1) the bitrate is 128, however the last few previous podcasts were in 192kbps.

PLEASE change it to 64kbps or at least offer it as an option in itunes.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE I'll send you a plush-toy kangaroo from Australia if you change the bitrate Grin

As I've said before, my crappy overpriced satellite internet has a 2GB per month download cap Sad So if the bitrate is not changed then I cant listen to the podcast~!

Bit Rate Issue

In reply to: 192kbps Bitrate

To V: When the bit rate was at 64kbps, I thought it sounded fine. However, for other listeners it didn't.

When I am exporting audio I use 96kbps, that seems to be the norm for what some of the "major players" in podcasting use.

The only thing is...there isn't that big of a difference in the file sizes between 96 & 128 (in my opinion).

To wmoisis: I want a plush toy! Save all your bandwidth for Buzz Out Loud, lol (joking...about both).
