Member Data Documentation

◆ dimensions

VideoDimensions agora::rtc::VideoEncoderConfiguration::dimensions

The video frame dimensions (px) used to specify the video quality and measured by the total number of pixels along a frame's width and height: VideoDimensions. The default value is 640 x 360.

◆ frameRate

FRAME_RATE agora::rtc::VideoEncoderConfiguration::frameRate

The frame rate of the video: FRAME_RATE. The default value is 15.

Note that we do not recommend setting this to a value greater than 30.

◆ minFrameRate

int agora::rtc::VideoEncoderConfiguration::minFrameRate

The minimum frame rate of the video. The default value is -1.

◆ bitrate

int agora::rtc::VideoEncoderConfiguration::bitrate

The video encoding bitrate (Kbps).

Choose one of the following options:

  • STANDARD_BITRATE: (Recommended) The standard bitrate.
    • the COMMUNICATION profile: the encoding bitrate equals the base bitrate.
    • the LIVE_BROADCASTING profile: the encoding bitrate is twice the base bitrate.
  • COMPATIBLE_BITRATE: The compatible bitrate: the bitrate stays the same regardless of the profile.

the COMMUNICATION profile prioritizes smoothness, while the LIVE_BROADCASTING profile prioritizes video quality (requiring a higher bitrate). We recommend setting the bitrate mode as STANDARD_BITRATE to address this difference.

The following table lists the recommended video encoder configurations, where the base bitrate applies to the COMMUNICATION profile. Set your bitrate based on this table. If you set a bitrate beyond the proper range, the SDK automatically sets it to within the range.

Note
In the following table, Base Bitrate applies to the COMMUNICATION profile, and Live Bitrate applies to the LIVE_BROADCASTING profile.

◆ minBitrate

int agora::rtc::VideoEncoderConfiguration::minBitrate

The minimum encoding bitrate (Kbps).

The SDK automatically adjusts the encoding bitrate to adapt to the network conditions. Using a value greater than the default value forces the video encoder to output high-quality images but may cause more packet loss and hence sacrifice the smoothness of the video transmission. That said, unless you have special requirements for image quality, Agora does not recommend changing this value.

Note
This parameter applies only to the LIVE_BROADCASTING profile.

◆ orientationMode

ORIENTATION_MODE agora::rtc::VideoEncoderConfiguration::orientationMode

The video orientation mode of the video: ORIENTATION_MODE.

◆ degradationPreference

DEGRADATION_PREFERENCE agora::rtc::VideoEncoderConfiguration::degradationPreference

The video encoding degradation preference under limited bandwidth: DEGRADATION_PREFERENCE.

◆ mirrorMode

VIDEO_MIRROR_MODE_TYPE agora::rtc::VideoEncoderConfiguration::mirrorMode

Sets the mirror mode of the published local video stream. It only affects the video that the remote user sees. See VIDEO_MIRROR_MODE_TYPE

Note
: The SDK disables the mirror mode by default.
