Adaptive bit-rate technology allows the end-viewer's player to automatically select the best quality stream for their particular network conditions. For example, if an end-viewer's network is not capable of streaming 720p at any given time, it will shift to a lower resolution video stream instead of reverting to audio only. If conditions improve, the video quality will dynamically shift up to a higher quality level. Not all streaming services offer adaptive bit-rate plans.
