Stream the GPD to a windows tablet
« on: February 11, 2017, 03:29:04 pm »
Hi there !  :)

I am attempting to connect my GPD Win to my Windows 10 10" tablet to stream my games on it. The idea is to have a wider screen to play when I don't have a proper external screen.
I tried many ways to do it but i'm quite stuck. First, I tried to connect the two devices via bluetooth and use Miracast (I guess ? I used directly windows 10 streaming solution). It worked but with an huge latency and approximatly 0.5 frames streamed by seconds. So, not a really good solution.  ;D
Then, my idea was tu use Steam In-Home streaming to do the job. While on my local network, it works well. My framerate is divided by two, but it works. The question was then "how connect the two devices together without my network to handle everything". First, I tried to create an ad hoc connection between the devices but, unfortunatly, nor the GPD nor my tablet can host Ad Hoc Wifi networks (It's too bad the GPD Wifi drivers can't handle it by the way), so it's quite a dead end. An other idea was to use my android device as a Wifi hotspot to link the GPD and the Tablet. I don't know how wifi hotspots are handled by android but the GPD and the tablet don't seem to be able to communicate.
I'm out of ideas right now, so if you have any, I would be grateful.

Thanks  ;D

You can enable internet connection sharing on the Win and connect the tablet to that.
An android hotspot should work too as long as you configure the network types correctly.

Sounds a bit pointless though, pretty sure your games would run better jsut running on the tablet.

streaming from the win?
I wouldn't do it with games that barely get 30fps because decoding the stream cost extra cpu/gpu performance so your games would lag even more.
