Video bitrate for screen casts
I'm going to be doing some videos for my company. They're going to be
available two ways--as a podcast and as a streaming video. What bitrate
should I be shooting for?
Thanks for your help.

display it at. Fast movement (eg. sports) video requires a higher
bitrate compared to drama. Screencasts generally require high
resolution but a relatively low bitrate.
For its low resolution MPEG-4 streams, YouTube's encodes videos at 640
kbit/sec at 480x360 resolution, 30 frames per second. Roughly 5
megabytes a minute.
