This weekend I wanted to stream my monitor to Kodi, mainly to have somebody watch me play a game on a TV without having to sit awkwardly next to me.
My setup is a PI2 "Retropie" (wheezy) install, with the kodi app running. I downloaded and started up limelight (I have a Nvidia GPU). This worked briefly and badly. The stream was opaque with the kodi menu still displaying in the background. And it crashed about twice.
This made me realise that I don't need "cloud gaming" stuff. I just want to stream my display to Kodi. A few google sessions didn't really supply me with what I need.
Is there some project that does this already?
I was thinking of maybe streaming to twitch and then in turn, stream from twitch to my kodi, but that just seemed a bit of a workaround.
RESOLVED (but not answered)
My "fix" isn't the answer to this question so I will keep it open for now.
A bug in GFE prevents steam from properly opening, instead on your windows machine stream "C:\Windows\System32\mstsc.exe" instead of Steam. This will just cast your whole desktop, this works with all games aswell. All I have to do is figure out if can have audio on both the client and host at the same time. This is not the case now.
But bottom line is, on a Pi (moonlight-embedded, installed as an app in emulationstation) works. After pairing:
moonlight stream -1080 -60fps $ip -app Windows
Streams my whole desktop, this is what I needed. It does still crash from time to time but works with 1080p @ 60fps!
