    4141We have an [/attachment/wiki/PacketEncoding/python-lz4.spec python-lz4.spec rpm specfile] and {{{RPM}}}s should be available for {{{Fedora}}} and {{{CentOS}}} 6.x in the RPM repository.

     47The default settings should end up using {{{lz4}}} and {{{rencode}}}, since those are by far the fastest options. That's why there are no command line options to change the defaults.

     49However, you can disable individual encoders/compressors using environment variables:
     50{{{
     51XPRA_USE_LZ4=0 xpra ...
     52XPRA_USE_BENCODER=0 xpra ...
     53XPRA_USE_RENCODER=0 xpra ...
     54}}}
     55Or you can also change the current encoder/compressor at runtime:
     56* switch to zlib: {{{xpra control :10 compression zlib}}}
     57* switch to lz4: {{{xpra control :10 compression lz4}}}
     58* switch to bencode: {{{xpra control :10 encoder bencode}}}
     59* switch to rencode: {{{xpra control :10 encoder rencode}}}
     60You can view the current connection options with:
     61{{{
     62xpra info | egrep "connection.encoder=|connection.compression="
     63}}}
     64}}}
