    I was trying to download a movie using AS as my backup as my other tool was crashing at the time. I've since fixed the problem, but I thought I'd bring it to the attention of the programmers.

    These are the streams available, and I've highlighted the version that AnyStream downloads:

    And here is the MediaInfo from the file:

    I would expect AS to download the 2157 kb/s version, but for some reason it chooses to get a lower bitrate. I can't attest as to why, but this is what motivated me to fix my original tool.

    I don't know if anyone else has experienced this problem, is it just me? I'd like to rely on AS in the future in the case that my tool becomes defunct, but it would be great if this issue could be addressed. Unless this is a one off mistake?

    Thanks.

    It's not you: https://forum.redfox.bz/threads/quality-constantly-changing-throughout-a-season.80650/ I suspect AS just picks the first entry it finds in the manifest instead of scanning for all possible candidates :)

    I’m experiencing the same problem. I think it’s a bug and hope they will address it and fix it. I tried different versions of the program but that didn’t fix it.

    AS should allow us to select the desired bitrate.

    Is this is in the newest version? I downloaded this before 1.0.1.0 or whatever was released.

    Could you add one more thing: in the resolution selection box, could you parenthesise the proposed bitrate next to the resolution, for example: "1920x1080 (3456 kbps)" It'd be useful when region hopping, I've noticed some regional variations with at least one provider :sneaky:
