I need to stream a video feed generated in real time using CamTwist and QuickTime Broadcaster on OS X.

The video is of a fairly static desktop, with some mouse movements, and occasional mild changes (e.g. switching tabs in a browser.) However, using CamTwist I'm overlaying in the corner a small feed of my webcam.

Which codec should yield the best results for streaming live video of such nature?

I'd go with H.264, if not because that's what is most commonly used in Flash.
