The current VideoConduit has a maxBitRate parameter set to 2Mbps: http://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/media/webrtc/signaling/src/media-conduit/VideoConduit.cpp#l786 When bbrittain and I were doing benchmarking, we noticed we were getting frame drops because libvpx thought we were exceeding bandwidth in periods of high motion. This effect will be less serious with desktop since it is set to compress more aggressively, but we may still be getting frame dropping. Someone should investigate.
So we've reduced max bitrates recently (by making them depend on resolution, with VGA getting max 1.3Mbps). I question why libvpx was dropping frames on us instead of increasing quantization, but dropping works. bbritain's work was a special case/usage
