Should 'up to' double the amount of playback video resolution

Viewer-Side Option! (&scene, &room, &view, &solo)



&sharper is now an alias of &dpi=2, which should 'up to' double the amount of playback video resolution, if the dynamic resolution optimization is enabled at least, in certain cases. This is a lot like &scale=100, but perhaps slightly more efficient in some cases. This is mainly for when you intend to have a large screen-share in a scene, where you don't want the tiny guest videos to be a 100% scale, but 50% scale is fine (up from 25% scale). &dpi already exists on production, but by adding these aliases, I hope it's more discoverable.

As an alternative to &sharper, I've also added &sharperscreen, which sets &scale=100, but only for screen-shares (virtual cameras not included). This is probably even more efficient than &scale=100 or &sharper, and it's designed for when screen-sharing a lot of text. Text looks a bit soft when streaming video at 1:1 pixel resolution.

It's recommended to only use these parameters within the context of a scene link, and not on guest links, due to the higher CPU / bandwidth it may use.
