Parsec

Post by VLSmooth »

Has anyone heard of Parsec? (https://parsecgaming.com/)

Parsec seems to be an extremely high performance/low-latency sharing application geared toward gaming (like vnc but MUCH better).
I've installed and got it working on my desktop and laptop and it's been amazing so far! o/

Introduction Youtube Trailer: https://youtu.be/1myitTBqzXM

There are clients for windows, macos, android (beta), linux, and raspberry pi 3.
  • Some highly publicized use cases include playing local co-op remotely (including emulators)
  • I've stream played an existing desktop ffxiv session quite well on my laptop o/
  • I was concerned about security, but curiosity got the better of me; I also limited access for hosting via the Approved Apps feature (link, youtube)
p.s. I originally heard of it from here: https://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comments ... or_action/

It takes 43 muscles to frown and 17 to smile, but it doesn't take any to just sit there with a dumb look on your face.
