Additional value options

Depending on browser and version, there may be additional values you can pass, such as text. Please see the following link for possible options that your browser may offer:



&screensharecontenthint can customize how you want VDO.Ninja to balance screen-share resolution vs screen-share frame rate, specifically when bitrate or CPU is insufficient to offer both at the same time.

The two options are detail or motion. Screen-shares generally tend towards detail by default, and camera sources are tend towards motion by default. detail will try to prioritize resolution over frame rate, so the frame rate may drop a lot used. motion will try to maximize frame rate, but may drop the resolution a lot. There's no way to force both on as there's no magic bullet if your CPU or network cannot keep up.

For more information on how to lock or maximize the resolution of a video feed, please see the following guide:

How to lock the resolution

There is &contenthint if you want the parameter to affect all kinds of video sources. You can also use both, &screensharecontenthint will override &contenthint for just screen-shares if set also.

If using &codec=vp9 on the viewer side, the frame rate may drop as low as even 5-fps.

This parameter has been tested on Chrome, but other browsers may vary in behavior. Safari seems to just ignore things, for example.
