i just read their site

as far as i can tell you can only stream games sufficiently on LOCAL NETWORK, which gives you the low latency. which is a bit meanless.

you need a 4mb upload speed to stream 1024*768 resolution over internet. I have 800kb upload, according to their site i can only stream 400*300 resolution. my actual throughput is much less. and definitly lags say if i am streaming from china

so the moral here is that this program is almost useless

Not really useless. Still handy over a Local Network and just because you have a poor Upload does not make the whole idea stupid. Thats your ISP limiting you.

The program would be fine for others.

how much do you have to pay for an ISP with at least 4mb upload? $70-100+? fine maybe some rich dude does but the latency over internet will still kill the game play.

the only useful part of it is really the broadcasting gameplay for internet viewers.

if it was really that great we wouldn't need external graphics for notebooks.

It seems like a good idea but their website is terrible. It won't let me use it in firefox, and thing is a ****ing maze as I can't find where you're supposed to download it once registered. I keep going round in loops.

edit: finally found it, jeezus.

Well I think for most this is more beneficial for people who wish to stream this content on the local network. Perhaps at a Lan match.

Another use for a HTPC! Have you gaming rig in your office and still be able to play it in the living room.
Once again...
