Playing RetroPie in a browser

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.
