Bit Rate Throttling, an IIS Media Services extension, saves money on network costs by metering the download speed of media and data files. For media, Bit Rate Throttling accomplishes this by automatically detecting the encoded bitrates of 11 common media formats, such as Windows Media Video (WMV), Flash Video (FLV), and MPEG-4 (MP4), and then throttling the response to the client. For any other file or MIME type, Bit Rate Throttling allows administrators to configure custom throttling rules. Reduce bandwidth costs without compromising user experiences Bit Rate Throttling saves network bandwidth costs by controlling the rate at which media is delivered over HTTP.
