NVENC and NVFBC in Home Streaming
leillo1975 2 Mar, 2016

I use Steam Link to play in my sofa. With 361.28 drivers NVENC can be enabled, but I have an option to activate NVFBC. When I activate this option in host, I see in the information displayed that NVENC are activated (instead NVFBC) , but I feel that the game streaming works a little better (perhaps it's only a feeling).

When Hardware is activated it show this, and also when NVFBC:

Can someone give more information about this?
