Downcast 1.1.7

Jamawkinaw Enterprises has released Downcast 1.1.7 with a fix for an issue in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion that caused the media library location to change. (For a full review, see “Downcast Comes to Mac, but Lacks Instacast’s Polish,” 3 August 2013.) The updated podcatcher app also fixes issues with the context menu and shortcuts when using the available episodes list, fixes a problem that prevented application of incoming iCloud changes, and resolves several instances of crashes. ($9.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 20.6 MB, release notes, 10.8+)

Does anyone know if I can lower the bitrate in Downcast.
I have limited data allowance and would like to get more podcasts each month. I am prepared to sacrifice audio quality. Gaazzaazz at gmail please
