Moonlight For Rooted Devices

Moonlight For Rooted Devices


This app is specifically for rooted devices. It enables full mouse capturing which is not possible without root. This means no Android mouse cursor or being limited to the bounds of the screen. If your device is not rooted, download this instead: http://tinyurl.com/moonlight-nonrooted

Root-specific info: Press Ctrl+Shift+Z to toggle grabbing input devices. Touchpads on game controllers are currently not captured.

This app streams games from a GameStream-compatible PC on your local network or the Internet (Streaming over LTE is supported, although data usage is high and you may have latency issues). After initial pairing, Moonlight will show a list of apps to stream from your PC. You can add any other apps to this list through GeForce Experience. Mouse, keyboard, and controller input is sent from your Android device to the PC.

To have a good experience, you need a mid to high-end wireless router with a good wireless connection to your Android device (5 GHz highly recommended) and a good connection from your PC to your router (Ethernet highly recommended).

If you're streaming over the Internet from behind a router, you will need to forward ports manually. The specific ports are here: http://tinyurl.com/k6hf2c6

3. If all else fails: uninstall GeForce drivers, reboot, clean install GeForce drivers, and reboot again.

Troubleshooting - "Video is choppy/laggy"
1. Try streaming with Bluetooth disabled to see if your device has the Bluetooth issue detailed below.

2. Make sure your device is connected on 5 GHz and your PC is wired to your router.

3. Lower the bitrate slider.

4. Try using 720p30 which has the lowest requirements.

Bluetooth-related streaming issues:
Depending on your phone/tablet, you may have a bad streaming experience if Bluetooth is active while streaming. This is a hardware issue due to the antenna wiring. If you experience this, you can try a USB Ethernet adapter or a controller that connects directly to your Android device via USB OTG.

Great app, just one thing... Can you add touchscreen controller emulation. This would be useful for on the go and you don't have to bring a controller.

Even better rooted I was a fan of the other version of this app, but being rooted really takes off a lot of the rough edges with controller and mouse input. It's a clean, quick way to stream games to a handheld device, compatible with more devices and combinations of devices than anything else I've heard of.

Great app! I use this with my Galaxy S4 and trinus vr mostly and I have used it with my tablets and set top boxes that don't have Nvidia Gamestream built in. I wish this had barrel distortion for vr hmds though.
