This app streams games from a GameStream-compatible PC on your local network or the Internet. After initial
pairing, Moonlight will launch and show a list of games that it can stream from your PC. Audio and video will be sent
back to your Android device. Mouse, keyboard, and controller input is sent from your Android device to the PC.
To have a good experience, you need a mid to high-end wireless router with a good wireless connection to your Android device (5 GHz highly recommended) and a good connection from your PC to your router (Ethernet highly recommended).

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 600/700/800/900 series desktop or mobile series GPU (GT-series not supported)
NVIDIA GeForce Experience (GFE) 2.2.2 or later
Solid connection to wireless router (Ethernet recommended or 5GHz wireless if Ethernet is unavailable)
Note for SixAxis users:
You'll want SixAxis in "Native Gamepad" mode for Moonlight to recognize the controller. The default mapping in the current version of SixAxis has the PS3 buttons mapped incorrectly to the standard Android controller layout (buttons are rotated by one), so you'll need to fix this before the PS3 controller will work properly.
1. Make sure GeForce Experience is installed, updated, and that you've scanned for games.
2. In most cases, your PC will show up automatically in the PC list. Click the entry in the PC list to start pairing.
3. On your PC, enter the PIN displayed on the Android device and accept the pairing dialog.
4. Choose your PC in the PC list and the app list will be displayed where you can select a game to stream.
Troubleshooting - "I can't pair/stream at all"
1. If the app crashes when starting to stream, try setting the "Force Software Decoding" option.
2. If you're streaming over the Internet, make sure UPnP is enabled on your router or the required ports are forwarded. See http://tinyurl.com/k6hf2c6 for more details.
3. Reboot your PC.
4. Disable your PC's firewall.
5. If all else fails: uninstall GeForce drivers, reboot, clean install GeForce drivers, and reboot again.
Troubleshooting - "Video is choppy/laggy"
1. Try streaming with Bluetooth disabled to see if your device has the Bluetooth issue detailed below.
2. Make sure your device is connected on 5 GHz and your PC is wired to your router.
3. Lower the bitrate slider to the lowest setting on your desired resolution and framerate.
4. Try using 720p30 which has the lowest requirements.
Bluetooth-related streaming issues:
Depending on your phone/tablet, you may have a bad streaming experience if Bluetooth is active while streaming. This is a hardware issue due to the antenna wiring. If you experience this, you can try a USB Ethernet adapter or a controller that connects directly to your Android device via USB OTG.
