SERVER DISPLAY SETTINGS
Force Server Display Resolutions
When you're in admin mode (you own the server or your friend gave you admin privileges - silly them), the server screen resolution will scale to match your client display. You can force specific resolutions here, but please don't exceed 2560x1440 (1440p). When you're not an admin, the server screen resolution will not change because we assume the admin is controlling the server screen resolution. If you get a display resolution error with this, it is because Windows does not have the resolution you are requesting available. You will have to manually add that resolution to the available resolutions or choose a different resolution.
- Max Bitrate Setting
This setting determines the maximum amount of bandwidth Parsec will use when streaming video to your client. The default value is 10.
- H265 Setting
You can set the host computer to prefer h265 if it is supported by the hardware video encoder in the host GPU, as well as supported by the client.
encoder_h265 = 1
- Video Stream Frames Per Second
You can set the stream FPS with encoder_fps. This defaults to 60. For streams with an "admin", someone who can connect without asking (yourself, or a friend you give this permission to), this will also attempt to change the refresh rate of the display to match.
- Encoder Video Output Quality
The quality of video can be set with encoder_min_qp. The higher this value is, the more 'blurred' the image will become. A value below 5 probably is not especially noticeable to the human eye. Parsec automatically scales this value based on network performance. The default value for this is 5. If you're still seeing blurry video, try increasing your max bandwidth in the settings tab of the app.
Turns the echo cancellation software on and off. If you are experiencing issues with sound cutting in and out, please turn the echo cancellation off by setting the value to 0.
