This would allow streaming when internet is down between peers on a local network
I'd use this! I presently have my gaming PC in a rack server in the garage as I have no space for it due to the house and kids. I use nVidia Shields and a laptop to stream games to various rooms and at the kitchen table and it works great and means I do not have to have a dedicated desk or space to play.
This would be awesome for a offline LAN Party!
Wasn't Parsec made to not have to be close to do things together, being near each other kind of defeats the whole purpose.
@Vampariz: Well yes it was designed for cloud gaming but some people also use it to play something on their desktop on a portable device I.E GPD Win, GPD XD, Nvidia Shield, Phone, etc
@Mage Enderman: First time I heard about using it on a phone, and I just realized someone might want to put their main PC screen in another room in their house.
Agreed, the current p2p negotiation is nice over the internet, but for local use cases, it's like those stupid "smart outlet" things that rely on an external web service and become useless bricks the second your internet goes down. An option for this will help make parsec more robust.
Agreed. This would allow a more steam link-esque use case.
Local discovery and hosting would be great.
Yeah this would be great and possibly parsec could also start some sort of "hotspot" if there isn't anything making a wifi connection
