Set default screen quality (general, per group, per machine)

Frank Mayer 8 years ago updated by anonymous 8 years ago 2

It would be great, to be able to have a default screen quality, with which the connection starts.

This is especially important in the case of slow connections, where a connection always starts at the highest quality and we need to manually downgrade it. Waiting times until the first high quality draw has finished so we can work with the remote machine, on slow connections ranges from half a minute to a minute or more...
The default setting should maybe be a program/group/machine default setting.

Another setting that could maybe be of interest, could be to remember whatever quality the last connection to a specific machine had, and use that as a default for a new one.

There is a global setting in the web.config file to configure the default quality: https://help.screenconnect.com/Editing_the_web.config_file#Video_Capture_Quality

We're always looking at opportunities to increase performance, and you should see some of those gains in 6.0.

Thanks, had not seen this setting before, thanks. However, some way of also having some kind of finer grained defaults, would also be welcome.


Also, glad to hear of increased performance in 6.0. But please fix the Ubuntu 16.04 issues I have reported in the forum, first ;)
