Streaming games

Hi I was wondering if it would be possible to stream a game from a desktop to a low end laptop and still have playable frame rates? maybe something like remote desktop?

  1. I very much doubt it.
  2. ^+1

    having tried to watch a movie via Remote Desktop and watching my efforts go up in a cloud of smoke, i highly doubt that you would be able to stream a game over Remote Desktop
  3. it is possible I've seen it done before

    There are commercials for some new game system to work this way.

    www.onlive.com
    I have no clue if its any good/etc
    I'm at work, but google found this as well: www.streammygame.com
    No clue how good that would be as its blocked at work.
  5. onlive != streaming from your desktop to your laptop

    onlive is from their servers to your laptop/desktop
  6. != means "not equal to" in case anyone was wondering..

    Why ask the question then? Where have you seen this before?

    seen it done, was just as mystified then as I am now
  9. Seen it done where, is the question? You should ask the person that did it for advice.

    it was a youtube video
  11. You could probably do it over a LAN with the right software - really remotely (i.e. over the internet) would be much less reliable IMO.
