Getting the highest quality in screen sharing!

In the Screen Sharing View menu, there are two possibilities, "Adaptive Quality" or "Full Quality".  I was on Adaptive Quality by default and I left it there for a while because it means that it is supposed to adapt to the quantity of bandwidth available.  The quality of the image I was getting was far from perfect however.  I assume it was because my network was not fast enough.  After a while, I took the time of trying "Full Quality".  The improvement was incredible.  Best of all, on a fast wireless n network like I have, there was no lag!  So if you are on a fast network, switching to Full Quality is a great improvement.

Is this a new Leopard thing? I don't have "Screen sharing" .. or have any idea why I'd use it.

It's in the new version of iChat in Leopard. I still can't find the preferences menu. Is it when u r actually sharing a screen or is it in system preferences?

You can share your own screen again...It's meaningless, but funny.
It works like this: start screensharing and then, from within the shared screen, start screensharing again (i.e. you go back to your own Mac and loop)... What you see a a tunnel of shared screens...

You will find the Screen Sharing app in System/Library/CoreServices (Leopard only).
