Best export settings for LIVE video in DaVinci Resolve

All social media LIVE platforms have limitations on your video stream's bitrate, resolution, frame rate, and so much more. Instead of exporting a video at higher settings than your stream can accept, this will help you to export your video in a smaller file size that will still keep your stream quality amazing.
