What is network speed range for broadcasting anything using wowza ? Min to max?

Missing title. Missing body.

Hello @Scott Hooten

Wowza should be able to handle bitrates listed in the encoding best practices cheat sheet:

In the cheat sheet it does not have a 160p, although 300 Kbps should produce an acceptable stream.

This will also come down to your available network bandwidth on how much bits you can send from a broadcaster.

I would also recommend reviewing our networking tips in our sizing your hardware article:
