[winswitch] Xpra Protocol Streaming Changes Or Video

Hello guys,

I've been reading that Xpra server is only sending data about the changes
that happened on the screen therefore it should skip a lot of unnecessary
packets. If that's true how does it utilize the h.264, VP8 and VP9? They
are all video codecs.

I a bit confused because the encoders' main idea is to encode one full
frame at the beginning and then keep encoding only what has to change in
order to get to the next frame.

I will be grateful if someone could explain this. Thanks in advance!
