Playing RetroPie in a browser

Fri Jan 11, 2019 2:28 pm

Hi guys, I am curious if you can play RetroPie games in a browser + keyboard with this:

because of the very little latency involved (e.g. <~200ms}

It might work, but 100ms lag might still feel horrible in a lot of games.

RpiName seems to find a way to promote UV4L here every couple of months so I'm pretty sure it was tested before the initial post was made. :D
Still a cool usecase.

Here is another demo. A game (Super Mario) being played from an Android smartphone (in Chrome, no plugin required) with a wireless gamepad controller connected to the smartphone itself, while the RetroPie game runs on an headless Raspberry Pi (with no display, no speakers, no controller attached).
