Switch between hardware and software encoding

VLC has a switch between hardware and software encoding. I would like to have the same in infuse. Hardware encoding uses less battery, software encoding is more future proof. Thanks

Just trying to understand, when would you want to do differently that what Infuse does automatically?

Do you mean decoding (watching videos) or encoding (creating videos)? I’m sure that infuse uses hardware decoding when it can, otherwise it uses software.

Infuse will always first try to use HW decoding, since it’s more efficient and better for battery life.

If a video isn’t compatible with HW decoding, or isn’t playing well for some reason it will automatically fall back to SW decoding.
