CaptureMethod

Capture screen updates using the optimal method (0), by polling (1), or by using application hooks if possible (2). For VNC Server in Service Mode, the optimal method uses DirectX on Windows 8+ or VNC Mirror Driver on earlier platforms. For VNC Server in User Mode, the optimal method uses polling since XP.

The default value for this VNC parameter is "0".

If you enable this policy setting, the corresponding VNC parameter will be set to the value you specify.

If you disable this policy setting or do not configure it, the corresponding VNC parameter will use the default or user-specified value.
