[FFmpeg-user] Guidelines for streaming a live screen capture?

I would like to stream a live screen capture to ffserver.  The basic requirements are:
    - Lossless codec (or minimal loss)

    - High compression - very little bandwidth if no screen changes are occurring
    - No buffering (or limited buffering) at the client, in case the server connection is too slow

Do you have any recommendations for which options should be used in the ffmpeg capture
to satisfy these requirements?

Also, is ffserver a good choice for distributing live screen captures?
