    67== Introduction ==
    78Xpra supports a number of picture encodings, provided you have the required libraries installed. Even then, the features of each encoding may vary based on the version of the libraries and other dependencies, both client and server side.
     
    1819 * h264: either using [/wiki/Encodings/x264 x264] or [/wiki/Encodings/nvenc nvenc]
    1920Note: for backwards compatibility, on versions older than 0.11.0-r4661 you have to specify the encoding as ''x264'' to get ''h264''. Newer versions use ''h264'', and ''x264'' will remain for command-line compatibility.

    5155=== Notes ===
    5256When comparing performance, make sure that you use the right metrics... The number of updates per second is not always a good one (if there are more small regions, this can be a good or a bad thing), more examples here: [/wiki/Testing#MisleadingStatistics Misleading Statistics]
