Airplay bandwidth for MP3s very high and fixed
I have tried searching the internets without finding the answer to my question. Hoping the gurus here have the answer.
Does anyone have a theory why Airplay (from iTunes on a PC) sends out audio at 140 KBytes/s? Even when the source is 96 kbits/s? I have measured it via my router and on the machine itself. Playing 320 kbits/s MP3 the airplay stream is nearly the same size.
Note this is the outgoing bandwidth only.
