Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

See ticket:1694#comment:4 and ticket:999#comment:24

We can add some hints to the window-model to try to help the picture encoders make better decisions.
For example:

  • "xterm" / "term" or "terminal" window classes should trigger "text" encoding, with higher quality, and avoid video
  • a media player (not sure about the best way to detect those), should trigger video


The webp encoder (#1694) can use this hint, we can also use this hint for selecting video mode.
