What is Bitrate?
The amount of data per second in a media file is known as the bitrate, and is expressed in kilobits per second (kbps). The higher the bitrate, the higher would be the quality, and more storage space would be needed. Bitrate can also be variable, in which the rate at which data is packed in is varied over time. This means that more data can be stored for complex segments of media files, while lesser data is stored in simpler segments.
