There isn't one. Xpra will use the best one available, which is lz4 if
present.
It doesn't compress very well, but it is very very fast.

If you want any more compression than that, use a proper picture
compression format (jpeg or png), but in most cases you are better off
letting xpra choose automatically for you. (and potentially adjusting
speed and quality settings to suit your needs)

Cheers
