    v52 v53  
    2323 * h264: either using [/wiki/Encodings/x264 x264] or [/wiki/Encodings/nvenc nvenc]
    2424 * {{{h265}}} using {{{x265}}} (not usable, far too slow)
     25 * {{{xvid}}} slower than x264 and vpx (see #1142)

    28 Note: for backwards compatibility, on versions older than 0.10.10 you have to specify the encoding as ''x264'' to get ''h264'' and ''vpx'' to get ''vp8''. Newer versions use ''h264'' and ''vp8'', but ''x264'' and ''vpx'' will remain for command-line backwards compatibility.

    3634Here are some rough guidelines:
    37 * on LANs with 100MBit/s or higher: {{{rgb}}} + zlib/lz4 should give you the best latency possible (whilst consuming quite a lot of bandwidth in the process..)
    3835* if you have the required hardware, use [/wiki/Encodings/nvenc NVENC]
     36* on LANs with 100Mbps or higher: {{{rgb}}} + zlib/lz4 should give you the best latency possible (whilst consuming quite a lot of bandwidth in the process..)
    3937* to save a little bit of bandwidth at the expense of framerate and latency, use lossless encodings: {{{png}}} or {{{webp}}}
    4038* otherwise, choose {{{h264}}} and tune the speed/quality to suit your needs (see below)
