What are the client requirements for using Video Transformers and Video Filters?
- Video API
Video Transformers and video filters require adequate processor support. Even on supported browsers or devices, transformers may not be stable when background processes limit available processing resources.
Some operating systems may offer multiple battery settings or modes to conserve energy by throttling CPU performance. This may result in suboptimal transformer performance and introduce unwanted audio or video artifacts. We recommend setting your operating system to use best performance mode (or to not use low-power mode) in such cases.
Many video transformations (such as background blur) use segmentation to separate the speaker from the background. For best results, use proper lighting and a plain background. Insufficient lighting or complex backgrounds may cause video artifacts.
Use Chrome (desktop or Android) for optimal results.
For the best user experience, ensure laptop/desktop computers meet these minimum requirements:
- CPU — Intel Core i5 (with 4 cores or higher) or Apple Silicon M1 (or higher)
- 8G RAM (or more)
- Dedicated GPU (for example, NVIDIA)
