Is there a fps limit when sharing content?

Many of my users were complaining about choppy video that is being played through a shared browser (not through Bluejeans video upload feature).  After looking at command center, I think we are limited to just 5 fps for the content stream.  None of my company's meetings have been able to exceed that number.  Has anyone else seen this issue?

Typically content sharing should be around 15fps but some systems like the Polycom Group series can support up to 60fps. BlueJeans should be able to support at least 15fps but I don't see anything listed in their specs: https://bluejeans.com/sites/default/files/pdf/BJN-Datasheet.pdf

The content quality depends on the call speed.  The Max call speed for SIP is 1472 KBPS and for H.323 is 1600 KBPS.   From my Polycom Group Series or Debut I see content coming in with either BFCP/H.239 at 720P/30 FPS.    If you instead dial in with a 1MB call, the content comes in at 720P/15 FPS.

Based on this testing, I recommend dialing in with the max call speed allowed by BJ.
