You drop from the channel stream unless you can dedicate the bandwidth, constant or otherwise. The quality levels don't do a good job of artifact clearance with respect to bandwidth use. Let's see if content awareness offers a solution.
Much of that is from being too constrained. On something like blu-ray things look excellent (this is why I have a big ol' NAS....)

I'd much rather see CRF values than having to come up with an arbitrary bitrate level. As someone who used to stream things back in the day, I thought it was inefficient. The bitrate level I set may be overkill during scenes with little action, while it may not be enough when a lot is going on.

1. It makes your networking easier when you have a nice, fixed number to plan around, especially when it comes to live streaming.
2. On YouTube (and others, presumably), non-live content uses a hybrid CRF + CBR approach, where there is a bitrate maximum, but the encoder is allowed to go lower if the quality requirements are met.

The real problem is that the quality standard by streaming sites are low right now, a function of most of the world (particularly NA) having shit internet infrastructure. Once most people have 100+mbit internet to their homes and their phones, the quality will go up, silently (as it has for 720p, from 1mbit/s during the original launch to 2-2.5mbit/s now on YouTube)

more crappy compression instead of ISPs getting their act together and stopping these stupid metering crap.

But then how will they price gouge the customer with overage charges and plans that allot more data?
