Best game streaming solution out there. Lowest latency, highest frame rates, and up to 4K!

The performances are good. Easy to use out of the box. Insufficient sound options such as sound source selection. Still some bugs with the sound. Compatible with gamepad.

This is no longer true. MacOS hosting is available and works great!

I have found Parsec to be an incredible solution for streaming work and gaming with very low latency and great quality. I also use it to help friends troubleshoot issues with their computers remotely in addition to playing local multiplayer games with them online.

Brilliant. This "just works" in the truest sense. Compared to Moonlight, which always has and will be broken because the dev is an arrogant moron who spends more time arguing with users than fixing problems, this is like something handed down by god. Best performance, easiest setup, most reliable. Use Parsec and ignore ML & SL.

It's ok if you want personal PC stuff done but anything like gaming requires the use of bluetooth or USBOMW compatible phone. App has not been updated so it's only ever useful for PC to PC.

That's not true at all. You literally just require -a- network connection to use Parsec. The app is updated frequently, too.
