View Full Version : Screenshare to play Games.

I was just wondering if anyone else had tried this?

Tried out left 4 dead 2 using my mac mini, while controlling everything off my macbook air. apart from some lag, which i attribute to a lot of applications still open on the mini, and the wireless' ability to stream, it worked alright.

i'm also wondering if you can make screenshare full screen on the computer you are using to control the other, cause it was a little tricky to control the FPS when the mouse went out of the window and stopped the gun whipping around and killing the zombie like it should!

I don't think this is at all viable. The new MBA should run l4d2 maxed out or nearly maxed out at native resolution.

Screen sharing is very, very laggy by nature.

the gaming service OnLive does it the best I guess, but it still lags and the visual quality is pretty harsh.
