Streaming app


Hello! I’m kind new to electron, so i doesn’t know is it’s possible.

It’s possible to create app to stream your screen, and in a website show it simultaneosly? If so, can someone point me in how to achieve that?

Kind regards!


Technically, yes. But it’s not entirely trivial.

You can capture the screen, stream it to a server (or potentially over a LAN) then the website streams the video from the server (or the machine on your LAN). I’m not familiar enough to know the details of how the stream works and streaming to and from the server, but it’s certainly possible to some degree. I’d say the hard part is getting it to run at remotely decent speed, there’s going to be plenty of lag (not so much over a LAN).
