Basically what I would like is for someone to be able to remote onto my PC and stream a video game while I'm still using it.

I've tried Steam In-Home Streaming, but that takes control of the entire computer so only one person can use it, and I've also tried the RDP hack that allows multiple sessions (like windows server) but that compresses the image badly and the streaming quality is abysmal.

I would like a software that allows me to do multi-session RDP but it can stream a game at a nice FPS with nice compression. Does such a software exist, and if so, does it

    What you could do is set up a Virtual Machine (or two) and have the Guest (or one VM) be used by someone, and the Host (or the other VM) be used by someone else. Check This out if you are curious to learn more. – MrPublic Apr 11 '17 at 1:11
  • Exactly. But for maximum performance make sure the VM has a direct access to a discrete GPU. Then the host should use the integrated GPU. – user31389 Apr 12 '17 at 16:00
  • @MrPublic as user31389 said, I don't have two discrete GPUs, nor do I have integrated graphics, and using some simulated VM GPU won't cut it for gaming. Furthermore, I'm not interested in installing unRAID onto my computer, I would like to keep Windows, if possible. – Rubydesic Apr 12 '17 at 18:34
  • What version of Windows are you Running? – MrPublic Apr 12 '17 at 19:04
  • @MrPublic Windows 10 64-bit – Rubydesic Apr 20 '17 at 20:28
