[FFmpeg-user] max Bitrate in RTMP

Hello there,

I am using ffmpeg to stream an RTMP feed. No matter what bitrate i stream
at, it never really respects the maxrate. It often goes over the maximum
bitrate. This causes problems as the end-receiver has a limit o its
bandwidth and when there is a sudden increase of the stream bitrate it
freezes the output. Is it possible to have a real CBR or a real cap on the
max bitrate?

Thank a lot,
