    Because of too big lag. Software is trying to compensate it by reducing bitrate.
    This tool is not suited for anything other than local Wi-Fi.

    Pretty sure he's talking about a local 5GHz Wi-Fi network and not the cellular mobile standard 5G.

    Yup. Facing the same issues. Using 5 GHz.

    Also made sure the LAN is set to Gigabit and not 100 Mbps.

    Others have stated achieving low latency in this thread using a 5ghz router. I wonder if distance has anything to do. Further away from router slower more latency? It was like that on my steam link dunno if it applies here

    It applies always on wifi in general

    Ive tried an experiment with my netgear nighthawk R8000P, basically my router is in my room so technically its the best connection in the house, however, walking upstairs from the router from my room does not drop any performance in gta V (my benchmarking game since any latency = bad experience basically). The only time I can get it to start dropping frames is when I go outside with it, even then though my router is by the driveway technically.

    TL;DR I have really good connection distance matters with older routers, newer ones will not have this problem

    Just a general question to anyone using this software, does anyone have issues with micro stuttering? It's been happening pretty much in any game I play except it's mostly noticeable in open world games like GTA V or Saints Row IV. I pinpointed it to my cpu possibly being the issue as when it's streaming all cpu cores are pinned to 100 (i5-4670k) so I most likely need more cores to offload the extra processing needed because as it stands, 4 cores is not enough.

    tl;dr if this is running 100% smooth what are your pc specs?
    Mine are:
    rx 580
    intel i5 4670k
    12gb ram

    I have the same problems with my specs aswell -i7 4770k OC to 4.7, 16gb ddr3 @2133, GTX1080, and all under a custom loop so I'm not sure your specs are to blame. I am also running my pc wired to my Netgear R7000 with the switch running through 5ghz wifi. I have not tested wired but my shield is also connected wireless and streams perfectly. I would imagine they are still optimizing the code and will get all the hw acceleration worked out eventually.
