Hey gang! Hope you found this interesting, be sure to let me know what streaming tricks I missed! And which of these methods do you think you'll find use for?

Joshua Swanson if the size of your ego is measured by the amount of storage you have then I wonder what I am? I work at a company what is also the single largest mobile phone provider in my country. So 5 of 10 Petabyte is nothing... Anyway :) will you add the things I mentioned to the video? I think they such be mentioned at least.

Wouldn't it be great if you could use your Android device.....to make your tea!!! (I was hoping he'd say that. Lol.) Must achieve full laziness!! In all seriousness though, what is the advantage of streaming Steam games this way if one happens to have the Nvidia Shield tablet? I have one and it worked pretty good for a while but it seems like it gets fried every couple weeks...as in, I can't remotely connect anymore without going to my PC and uninstalling and reinstalling the dang drivers... maybe I set it up wrong somehow (I'm not very tech savvy TBH) but it seems to be a drivers issue 9 times out of 10... ;___;

Please stop wasting time in videos. You took the first 1 minute 10 seconds for JUST the intro.
Alex Beyer (7 months ago)
How do you do peer2peer remote desktop sans online connection, like adhoc remote pc. I would assume doing away with needing to go through a router and having the devices talk to each other directly, you could greatly reduce lag, especially if both have 5GHz AC.

Instead of all those apps for streaming you could have just used one app called monect and it is much more than what all of them do!

Mr. Chomsky (7 months ago)
It could be easier, all of it could be. For one, I’m not saying it’s easier yet. I’m saying downloading a bunch of separate apps is annoying.

We can also get the IP address of the router/DHCP server by entering command ipconfig/all in command prompt.

In the last part of the video you explain about how to turn on your pc from anywhere... But how to access the files after that? Should I have teamviewer or other app like that run in startup?
Benny Nielsen (7 months ago)
5 attempts to install Splashtop on Windows 10 and no luck. The app can't find any PC's but I even get an email notifiying me of attempts to log in. Bummer.

on my network, splashtop lags during watching media as well, after a few minutes, the lag between the video and audio becomes obvious, any ideas on how to tweak the settings to make this go away?

Actually these were some really great tips and always enjoy watching and definitely keep this in good to know.But if I ever get this lazy I would hope someone would knock me in the head.JK great tips I wish I could saw this when setting up several routers to keep people confused.I think I now know why I have not went full in with automation as well.Also never been a person into spying as well kind of tacky.but I will keep the router part in mind because I have had my share of nonsense.Now if they had one that would make people not lazy that would make me happy.Thanks so much for sharing great Video Deb.✌👍

Nichts Niemand Linux Geräte sind sowieso mit Steam compatibel also sollte das Pixelbook mit Steam funktionieren.
Red Fox (7 months ago)
aber für chromebooks wäre es doch eine recht sinnvolle app oder? (zumindest fürs pixelbook, da es scheinbar sehr leistungsstark ist) :D
Red Fox (7 months ago)
schade Danke für diene Hilfe :D

Nichts Niemand Nein. So eine App gibt es leider nicht, da dein Handy nicht genug Performance hat.
