    Wow. This is pretty dope. When monster hunter world comes to PC, you can play it on the switch then.

    P.S. your PC rig looks awesome.

    What about installing Steam for Linux on Switch and using its streaming functionality? Or Rainway? Do they perform well?

    There's very low lag and it works well, but I can't get the joycons to sync with the PC correctly =/

    My Joycons connect well on PC and I'm able to play FFXIV with it (btw. I like your username :P ).
    But as soon as I stream my gameplay to Switch with NoMachine, I get a bad input lag of 2-4seconds.

    Thank you, hopefully there will be better software to do this

    steam doesn't seem to run on arm64 and rainway doesn't work for me

    did you follow the guide linked in this thread?

    very odd, i don't get any input lag on joycons

    about 6-7meters

    Booo OP! BOO! Fake news thread! Saying no latency and then almost no latency isn't the same thing! /jk

    Nice work. :) Got to hope audio drivers and joycon drivers gets programmed to use the full potential.

    Moonlight Embedded should work since it's designed for Raspberry Pi and the like: https://github.com/irtimmer/moonlight-embedded
    It should work even better than Nomachine. Nomachine might be really fast but it's not designed for games.

    I got to say that Moonlight is pretty terrible. The quality is really, really bad.

    You might be doing something wrong then (or need a better router), most people (including myself) get amazing results from Moonlight.

    Well I did try to stream it to my TV from my PC. Then again it's a 980 card in my PC. And yes I suppose I might, but sitting on a 4K 55" tv. I do notice a really, really big difference in quality in games such as Rocket League. So I guess I might be high demand for better software. I might need a better GPU as well.

    The router isn't the issue. Already measured the transfers. Both with cable and wifi. This is my area of expertice.
