Playing games remotely

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
I duno if this has been asked before or whether it can be don or not...But here goes.

I have my pc in my bedroom, and alot of times my friends come over and we want to play games on the lcd monitor in our guest room. Also my brother sleeps in the same room and our parents room is really close, small house .
Anyway taking everything apart and moving my case and all the wires to the other room and whats not is painful.
So i was thinking if i can get a laptop/netop or anything that can display 1920x1080 via hdmi, can i remotley access my desktop and play games?
Dont know if i said it correctly, but think of it as playing games on ur laptop while the desktop is actually doing all the work.

thx

Any VNC or RDP solution will be unplayably laggy.

Apparently there are 'streaming' solutions which will treat your video output just as a video stream, but haven't used them personally.

I guees you would need both systems to be plugged in on a Gigabit Ethernet Router.

Never tried, but some 10 minutes of looking I'm seeing two feasable solutions:

1. VNC to a laptop/device but have it wired with a preferably gigabit router (plus gigabit NIC's on both devices). You'll need a VNC program that will send frames fast, probably using h264 format or uncompressed if you can find it (we want to saturate as much of that gigabit as we can, least amount of lag). All hypothetical and probably a longshot this way.

2. Probably more feasible but maybe more expensive. Find a device to wirelessly transmit your video, possibly this? I've heard iffy things about this one in paticular though, so do more research on this part.

Both situations you will probably want a bluetooth or other wireless (maybe even LAN-enabled if you can find one?) controller(s) so you can game and your computer is 50-100 ft away. I'm sure there are some niche products out there for making your own In-house OnLive system, but I couldn't find much more than this.

Good luck on your search!
