Most of the people do not know about the bit-rate thing, and its relation to video quality is another thing if they don’t know about the bit-rate. The bit-rate of a video highly impacts the overall quality of a video, and it also determines the size of a video. So tell you about the bit-rate, it is no of bits assigned to a video per second. For example, a low-quality video will have fewer bits assigned to it per second, and a high-quality video may have Mb’s assigned to it per second.
