Frames per Second

The number of frames displayed every second is known as the frame rate and is measured in frames per second (fps).

A higher frame rate is resulting in smoother motion, but it also requires a larger amount of data to display the video, therefore more bandwidth. It will yield some capacity to improve the picture quality.

If you want to deliver a very low-capacity stream, reducing the frame rate is an option.

This example allows you to watch the same movie with different frame rates. Please select one of the given choices and press the Open button. But be careful, for each selection a new window will be opened. If you want to compare the different possibilities, move the windows until you can compare them.
