              Because bit rate is highly dependent on codec, there is no recommended
Bit rate      or minimum value. Videos should be optimised for resolution, aspect ratio
              and frame rate, rather than bit rate.
              The frame rate of the original video should be maintained without
Frame rate    resampling. In particular, pull-down and other frame-rate resampling
              techniques are strongly discouraged.
