For starters I want to put out there I am not asking about how internal coding works or anything nor complaining about anything. Just wondering about some information. I'm curious on how AnyStream goes and grabs the settings from Netflix? I know in the options everything is very limited, whether for the time being or intentional. I know it downloads the streams essentially and muxes them together. So there is no encoding done. I was testing with a few different TV episodes and since the quality varies due to source alone I figured I would test try one of Netflix's own shows since the source (the material they use to make the stream, not the actual end result we get) would be of higher quality. I downloaded Season 3 Episode 1 of Carmen Sandiego and got the 1920 x 1080p version with SRT subtitles. Once I got the file I inspected it with MediaInfo and saw the following stats: Resolution: 1920x1080 (16:9) Video Bitrate: 1212 kb/s @ 23.976 fps Audio Bitrate: 192 kb/s 48.0 kHz, 6 channels AAC File Size: 246 MB This all looked fine though, but as I know from ripping some of the Blurays I had, that this felt low so I did some digging around and found another copy of it using other tools that do a direct download of the file (same as AnyStream), but it seems they were able to get a higher quality of the stream with the following stats: Resolution: 1920x1080 (16:9) Video Bitrate: 6190 kb/s @23.976 Audio Bitrate: 640 kb/s 48.0 kHz, 6 channels E-AC-3 File Size: 1199.5 MB The audio I'm assuming is better quality due to the second being Dolby Digital Plus vs Regular Audio, which from what I read is how AnyStream does it currently. Which leaves the video as the next question. Is there anything in particular that is causing it to get the lower bitrate stream (vs the 134.5% increase the other gives)? Is there perhaps a setting I missed somewhere as something doesn't sound right. I know Netflix uses your account settings, but my settings/plan is on the Premium Ultra HD. Before someone might think it, no I am not complaining about it. Just curious on what might be causing the difference between the two.
