    I want to export from FCE so that my MPEG-4 video provides the smoothest WEB playback without buffering. Anyone know what numbers I should type into the box "kbits / sec" ?

    buffering time really depends on the server and the connection speed of the person trying to watch the video. It will also depend what codec you are using wrapped inside the mp4 container.

    I use H264 codec wrapped in the mp4 container on our website and without going into all the specific settings we generally use 3000kb/s for videos under 3 minutes and it yields a good quality image...
