NN International Excercise VODCAST SPECS

For any team of the International Excercise that wants to make their own vodcast here is the VODCAST SPECIFICATION that I intend to follow with submitted student files. I am using Final Cut Pro HD 4.5 with file > export > Using Quick Time Conversion > MPEG-4 (mp4)

MPEG 4 settings
Video Track: Improved
Size: 320x240
Audio Track: Music
~980 kbits/second
fps: 30.0
key frame 24 frames
~100 kbits/second
Channels: Stereo
Output sample Rate: Recommended
Endcodinf Quality: Better
Hinting type: None
Maximum packet size: 1450 bytes
Maximum packet duration: 100 ms
Type: None
Internet connection speed: Any

And Quicktime Movie Info reports these specs when playing my finished vodcasts:

MPEG-4 Audio, Stereo, 44100 Hz
MPEG-4 Video, 320x240, Millions
Data Rate: 95.7 K bytes/sec
Normal Size: 320 x 240 pixels

PS: I am new to vodcasting with a few vodcasts produced for the New-York Historical Society and I would appreciate hearing from you about different, better or more practical mp4 specifications.

Thank you, Steve[at]
