Option to change codec of the WHIP while screen-sharing
*on beta and alpha
&whipoutscreensharecodecto the publisher's side gives the option to change the publishing codec while screen-sharing via WHIP.
There's 4 codec options currently, including the default option:
- The unspecified default, which is software h264.
- There's also
h264, which is what the browser then sets. This could include hardware encoding, but that will not work with Firefox or Safari viewers then.
vp8is pretty compatible, so if the default codec doesn't work, you can try that.
vp9is also available, which has better compression/quality, but not fully compatible with all devices.
- av1 and SVC are not yet supported, but that is planned at some point.
