Hi guys, I configured vnc on my Raspberry Pi and all work perfectly except Minecraft. When I start the game all that I see is a black sreen but if I connect raspberry pi to a monitor with HDMI Minecraft works perfectly. How can I solve the problem?

Hi, assuming you're using the RealVNC software that comes installed by default with Raspbian, you need to go to the vnc options > troubleshooting and enable experimental direct capture mode. That allows you to see Minecraft and other directly rendered content.

Yes I'm using RealVNC and now I enable the troubleshooting option and now it works! Thank you very much, you can also tell me what option modify to get better the streaming quality?
