  • FAQ - What bitrate should I use

    Q: What does bitrate mean?

    A: Bitrate, is a term used to describe the amount of bits per second used to store/encode the audio information being streamed or saved in an audio file. In the MP3 format, generally, 192 kbps is considered CD quality. 128kbps is considered near CD quality. 1Mix Radio streams in 32/128/192/256/320kbs qualities
  • FAQ: I see several choices to listen to. What’s the difference?

    A: One option is picking which bitrate to use. What is the bitrate you ask? You’ll see it listed as a number such as 64k, 128k etc. The higher the number or bitrate, the better the quality of the audio stream.

    .Q: So why would I listen to a lower quality stream? Good question.

    A: The reason is that you may not have a fast enough internet connection to listen to the best quality. Generally what would happen in that case is the audio would play a bit, stop for a little and play again. This would repeat continuously. The second option is picking a stream to listen to is less technical. You’ll see links for several audio players that are common. Only one comes with Windows and you should have it on your system and that is Windows Media Player. There are also other links to popular players such as iTunes, WinAmp and Real Player. If in doubt about what you have then pick Windows Media Player.

    Also if you enjoy listening to 1Mix Radio on an app in your car; it is highly recommend to use a lower bitrate. This will eliminate buffering of the music while driving through different cell masts.

    Finally, if you find the lower bit rate quality acceptable, you will use less data, which is important on a metered connection.
