max allowed bitrate

Details

Limits any guest viewer in the group chat room from pulling the video stream at more than the specified bitrate value.

Does not impact what the director sees and does not limit the quality of what OBS has access to. This is like maxbitrate, but roombitrate only applies to fellow group room guests. Practically, a guest normally won't pull more than 1200-kbps and that's only if they click the HQ full-window button.

Set to 600-kbps, 200-kbps, or 80-kbps if the goal is to reduce CPU load. (2x, 3x, or 4x down-scaling is applied at those bitrate limits)
