How good is the Xbox One streaming In Windows 10?

Gaming Hardware
Microsoft just released Windows 10 with one kinda cool feature for us gamers. You can stream your Xbox to our PC now. That's right. You fire up the Xbox app on your Windows 10 computer, you make sure it's Streaming has enabled in the system preferences on your XBox, and then you connect them to the same network. And you can connect them and stream. Yeah, so we were wondering how well this works? Does it work? Can you do 60 SPS? Can you do multiplayer game ->> On voice chat. Is there weird, crazy latency ->> Yeah, any issues online. All right. I don't know. So, we tested all of that and guess what? It pretty much all works. Yeah, we even got 60 frames per second in Forza and AW Multiplayer. There's really no latency. We were getting killed on a multiplayer match, which is pretty cool. You've used a lot of streaming systems how did this one hold up? From all the streaming systems I've used, this was like the least noticeable latency which is like the number one important issue with all the streaming stuff. But no matter how good it looks, it's the latency that always kinda ruins the system, that was my impression of the Nvidia Shield, Playstation TV, Playstation Now all that stuff was like unplayable because it would have. Even just a little bit of latency. It starts in full-screen mode when you hit the stream button and we were actually having tons of problems with it in full-screen mode. We had to minimize it back down and the scale it as we wanted to and that it worked in windowed mode but yeah for some reason it just didn't work in full-screen. Yeah so I mean the streaming technology seems to work but there's some problems with the system as it stands. There's you know Those could be updated. The voice chat works. Any mic plugged into your PC as a record input worked over a party chat on Xbox, which was cool. Things worth mentioning, there were three quality settings. None of them were incredibly good looking or incredibly bad looking, but when you go to low, you lose FPS. Yeah, you drop the framerate. We could only stream low over wi-fi for the most part. They only way I could see this kind of thing being cool is let's say I could stream my PC to my Xbox. Dude, now you're talking. Yeah, let me play Kerbal Space Program on my TV, keyboard and mouse. Yeah, without any additional purchases cuz you already have an Xbox, you already have all the stuff on PC. Yeah, I mean Microsoft makes Windows 10 and the Xbox. There's no reason to let Valve come in and swoop this cool idea. And Windows 10 is coming to the Xbox soon, in November I believe, or this Fall. I can see it happening with just Windows 10 apps, like stuff you buy in the Xbox app and Windows 10 streams the other way, that, I can see happening. That'd be nice. It'd eliminate the need for a Steam Box Val's coming out with a $50.00 download called the Steam link. Pretty much the same thing, but they were correct direction. But, hey it works going this way. And these are all the questions you never had about it. And we tried to answer them. How about that? If you got any questions, just make sure you put them in the comments. [NOISE]
