    Would be awesome if AnyStream would show video bitrate in the resolution combo box.
    Don't know if it's also possible for Amazon or other services, but should be doable for Netflix.

    It is doable for both of them, however, AnyStream is configured to select highest bitrate for a given resolution, so I doubt there would be any good in adding to the resolution combo.

    I still find it a useful info, especially when the download limit was introduced.
    Today I ended up downloading 850kbps 720p, which obviously had a terrible quality - i wouldn't download it, if I would see the bitrate before dl.

    I go for WiseMan request, even if the app select the highest bitrate it can take, it would be great to have just the information of the bitrate so we can imagine how good or bad will be the files once it's downloaded.

    Hi @Prospere i wanted to start by saying that I think the tool is very good i have a question, regarding the maximum quality that the tool can download i downloaded the Netflix title 81277950 but what the tool manages to download is hpl40 with 2 509 kbps, you can see it in the mediainfo at the end of this message but with another tool that I have I could download up to mpl40 with 5360 kbps i also leave the information here below. The question is more than anything, is it temporary? Or is it done that way intentionally?

    Would be actually nice,if one could choose eg. the 2nd best bitrate for 1080p resolution (amazon prime) since it now only downloads the best 1080p version, and the files end up around 4gb for one hour documentary, now i have to manually re-encode the stuff to a bit lower bitrate at 1080p for my own archives.

    Just download the 720p or SD version instead.

    Other good example when bitrate info would come in handy is Amazon VBR vs CBR - one can determine without downloading which of them should have better quality.
