Hi byrne.

Okay thanks for the feedback. The knowledge base entry “https://www.nomachine.com/AR02L00782″ is not very clear about server side graphics hardware utilisation. I’m not sure what it means by server side hardware acceleration?

On server side hardware acceleration refers to the possibility of capturing the screen content from the GPU memory directly, without having to use the OS APIs. This is the deafault method on Windows servers. On client side it enables the hardware decoding.

I see that when we specify “lightweight” mode the rootless window seems to draw correctly. Can you select between vp8/h264/lightweight sessions as a client option? We require reasonable video playback across the LAN to clients machines so I suspect that NX compression is not going to as good as h264 for our purposes.

That is not available as a client option.
