Default Stream my Game - 09-10-2009, 07:02 PM

Has anyone tried Stream my Game? It is an amazingly good program to run amazing games on bad systems, all you need is:

-A good computer running Windows that can run the game you want to run
-A internet Connection
-A Mini running Linux or Windows, if your running Mac OS X make a backup and do a windows dual boot.

All this does is it runs the game on your good computer and streams it to your crappy computer so you can play it anywhere with a internet connection

Free only streams a resolution of 480x640 and premium streams full HD but the problem is premium costs around 10-20 bucks a month

StreamMyGame

PS: It runs on the PS3 aswell =D

This is possibly the most amazing program I have ever used on a laptop ever. I am shocked!

I made a video of me playing Left 4 Dead using this. I will post the YouTube link once it's up.

EDIT: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2SLE_Rl4jk
There's the video once it's processed.

Excellent program, will have loads of fun with this!

*sticking*

After watching the YouTube video for proof... I feel that this is a revolutionary way to play games on the Mini (or any computer that is not beefy enough to handle the game)

I am curious what streaming the game depends on... does it run through a web browser session or does the proprietary app take care of all those things?

Is the app memory intensive? What is RAM/CPU usage when running this?


Thanks! Stuck!

Stream my game is a program you download (linux or windows) but it is only accessible through the website. the ram/cpu usage of this app is extremely low, so low it can be run on the first model eee pc (1 ghz, 512 ram)

this is pretty awesome. I mean, I already have 3 (maybe 4) games that work on the Mini right now, (Audiosurf, Half-Life, Peggle Deluxe, TrackMania Nations Forever ?) but if this hardly uses any battery, then I'd get this...

Someone should do a battery test. Play a game that you can on the Mini, then play it through stream my game, and see if how big the difference is.

Is it possible to use this over LAN or is it purely online?
