Developer Guide

This documentation is for an older version of Amazon AppStream. For information about the latest version, see the Amazon AppStream 2.0 Developer Guide.

Choosing a Color Subsampling Rate

Amazon AppStream streams the video at the YUV420 color subsampling rate to client apps. If your streaming application, Google Chrome browser, or Chromebook support YUV444, then your Chrome app will display the video at YUV444. The example Chrome app in the Amazon AppStream Chrome App SDK is configured to accept and render a stream in the YUV444 color subsampling rate.
