[QUOTE=Im a PC;2492518]Yeah, you might get 1080p, but the bit rate will make it look like ass.[/QUOTE]
Depends on the bitrate and whether it’s constant or variable bitrate, the film, and the post-processing.
Generally, internet sites will stream at constant bitrate, because it’s the easiest to work with in regards to buffer management, it constrains the minimum and maximum bandwidth requirement, but it also provides the lowest video quality too.
My crappy ADSL2+ connection only gets me between 5-7Mbps in Oz … and the exchange is less than 500m away (line of sight).
I occasionally get interruptions (pauses/non-responsive browser) streaming crappy SD video over a 1hr episode from australian sites.
