Two different modes in the Premium Streaming

There are actually two different "modes" in the Premium Streaming:

  1. Advanced mode. This is the default mode.
  2. Compatibility mode.
As the name suggested, the advanced mode is superior to the compatibility mode in most cases. However, not all webcams can be streamed in the advanced mode.

By default, The Spaghetti Detective will try to stream in the advanced mode first. When it fails because of an incompatible webcam, it'll switch to the compatibility mode. So chances are you can leave the decision to The Detective and she will figure out if the compatibility mode is right for you.

There are some rare situations when your webcam is compatible with the advanced mode, but the compatibility mode will suit your needs better. In these cases, you can tell The Detective to "always stream in compatibility mode".
