As the title suggests, using the VP8 codec in jitsi-meet leads inevitably to complaints about chrome using up all the power since there doesn’t seem to be VP8 HW acceleration.
Since most platforms have h264 HW acceleration the experience is much better and battery consumption doesn’t go through the roof.
I have h264 preferred for P2P in my config.js, but I was wondering if I could also force H264 for jvb meetings to see if that solves the draining battery problem.
H264 doesn’t have simulcast I believe, so that’s a downside for H264 in jitsi-meet, but I still would like to try it out to see how it works in practice.
Can someone help me force H264? Are there any other downsides besides not supporting simulcast?
