    Hello guy,

    I am fairly new with Anystream and just bought it. I was just wondering if it's Amazon that gives the information to Anystream for the output Video Resolution or if it's the opposite?

    I found weird that SD is always at 704 instead of being at 720. As my knowledge, 720 is more universal than 704.

    704 is HD minus the top and bottom 8 pixel row (2x8=16+704=720). 720p is the first version of HD video called "HD Ready". SD is either 480p (NTSC) or 576p (PAL)

    720p is 1280x720 but 480p is 720 x 40x... Don't confuse 720p and Video Resolution. Would be nice to get a Video Resolution of 720x404 by example...

    The thing is the following. Now I have to download in 1080p and RE-ENCODE with a 480p resolution. This is a long process instead of only downloading directly with a 720x resolution.

    What is it that you are downloading? And what are the resolutions given to you. Btw, yes, Amazon sends the info about the video/audio.

    Thanx for the info about Amazon giving the VIDEO RESOLUTION. So in other terms, I am doomed. 704x396 is the 480p resolution but 704x is not really universal. 720x 396 would be. So I thought it was anystream giving this information and not Amazon. I will have to go on and download the 1920x1080 and re-encode.

    Thanx. Regards.

    It's amazon. AS lists all available streams it's being offered by the streaming provider.
