Advanced Audio Settings for Hosts

This guide will explain what the advanced audio settings do as well as how to access them as a host.

Be default all video platforms keep audio compression set for speech. But these don't work well with classes that rely on music. With Televeda, instructors have the capability to host high-quality musical themed programs like Karaoke, Guitar lessons and we've even streamed a wind quartet symphony performance in real-time!

The "Advanced Audio Settings" settings are a simple way to set your (the host) audio quality before the start of the class. Audio quality is determined by Bitrate. The higher the Bitrate, the better the sound quality. Bitrate itself is measured in Kilobits per second (Kbps) with the default for class being 48 kbps. You can reduce your kbps to a minimum of 6 kbps or raise it to a maximum of 510 kbps.

In order to change the Bitrate for your upcoming class, login to the class selection page (shown below).

click on the box next to Use Advanced Audio Settings (see arrow below). From here, a small menu should pop up (shown below)
Please also select the Disable Host Audio Processing

From here, simply drag the slider until you find a Bitrate that you are comfortable with. The number appearing in the "Set Manually" box is the Bitrate in kbps multiplied by 1000, so do not be alarmed when you see a very large number in that box (48000 = 48 kbps). We recommend that you only change the Bitrate if you have been experiencing issues with your sound quality because increasing the Bitrate will increase the file size of your class recording, meaning that it will take more time to download.

Note: To set up a class with the highest resolution, you need to ensure you have a strong internet connection and speed to support it. You can use any popular speed test to confirm. And always be hard-wired for best results. If you need help, feel free to reach out to for a complementary consult.
