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, make sure UPnP is enabled on your router or the required ports are forwarded. See http://bit.ly/1sUauPq for more details.

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.

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.

Perfect Works flawlessly on my OnePlus One at 1080p 60fps, I actually can't tell the difference with latency at 16ms. Tablet Z doesn't work as well but that's down to the Snapdragon S4 chip so only 720p 60fps is playable

Works perfectly never had a problem must versions I love it. Even with the name change lol. I've used it for multiple version of Geforce and moonlight. Always works for me even over poor wifi networks. Aside from customization options of stream quality and such I'm not entirely sure what this has over nvidia's native streaming but b/c of the tweaks I still use and recommend this app.

Gets better with each release It will only work well if your upload speed at home is good. It is best to tone down settings when connected remotely. Saves you at least $300 from having to buy a shield device.
