Subject: [Galene] Heads up: default video codec is now VP9
Date: Sun, 09 Jul 2023 16:31:30 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I have just changed the default codec in Galene to VP9.  This gives better
video quality, and uses SVC for quality reduction, which is better than
the simulcast hack used with VP8.  Please let me know if this change
causes any breakage.

Note that this means that on iOS, Safari 14 or later is now required.
(On desktop Mac OS X too, but on desktop you have a choice, and you should
not be using Safari with Galene in the first place.)

If for any reason you need to revert to VP8, please put the following in
your group configuration:

    "codecs": ["opus", "vp8"]
