Description William Sjöblom cendio 2024-01-11 16:05:05 CET
The documentation for the "Allow JPEG compression" checkbox [1] is confusing.

Given the checkbox label, you would expect unchecking it to completely disable JPEG compression. However -- the TAG describes the checkbox as follows:

> By selecting this option you choose to override the standard JPEG compression
> quality of color-rich parts of the screen.

This makes it sound like JPEG compression is always on, and checking the "Allow JPEG compression" checkbox only lets you pick a non-standard compression quality.

It seems like the documentation was not updated when fixing bug 856 and still reflects the pre-bug 856 behavior.

Note: When the unchecked, vncviewer is called with `-NoJPEG`.
