Multi Bitrates Encoder 9 media player 10 issues. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Note: Please dont tell me that this is the wrong forum without telling me where is the right forum!!
    I am broadcasting at 4 bitrates constant streaming video. 128k, 64k, 32k, and 16k.
    The Problem is this:
    My audience's PC's are usually auto negotiating to the 128k speed. This is not good for most of the users. Many need to be on the 64k level or below. 
    The auto negotiation feature is usually troublesome when it thinks it can step up to 128k. The user experience is usually skips, stops, and rebufferrings. 
    Many would have a much better experience if they limited their bitrate to say 64k. The user can do this by right clicking on the embeded media object and going to options. There they can set the max bitrate to 64 
    or 32.
    In the real world, this is to much to ask of my customers. They usually get frustrated and move on.
    My question is this:
    Is there anyway to specify the max bitrate in the parameter tags or 
    whatever, such that i can create 4 pages one for each speed, and give the 
    user the option tovierw at a slower speed just by clicking a link????
    My page in question is:
    The current embedded code is:
