Rainway - Stream your games to other computers
Review by on
Going away on vacation is not always something exciting for gamers, since they won't have their monster gaming rigs with them. Fortunately, there is a solution for this issue, thanks to modern-day technology. A good example is Rainway, which gives you the possibility of enjoying your favorite games anywhere you go. The software is capable of streaming games to other computers and it lets you play them on a web browser. The best part is that it uses the hosts hardware to run the games, so you can stream them to a slower computer. Furthermore, setting everything is quite easy.

The software is offered completely free of charge, with no hidden fees or restrictions. It runs on all modern Windows systems, without any compatibility issues and it can be installed reasonably fast. The setup package includes everything you need, so you don't have to install anything else before running Rainway.

Understanding how Rainway works and what you have to do is not difficult. Once you install and run the server module on your computer, you will have to create an online account and link it with your Steam account. This should only take a few seconds. When you are done, the software will present a compact configurations panel, on which you can make a few tweaks, according to how you wish to stream your games.

The software lets you choose between encoders, video adapters, displays and audio outputs. Additionally, you can adjust the stream itself, by setting a higher or lower quality, a frame rate, scaling to a certain resolution and choosing between high quality or a constant bitrate.

With Steam and the server module running and properly set up on your computer, you can connect to your Rainway online account, on any web browser, where you will find the games from your Steam library. This can be done on any computer, anywhere in the world. Simply clicking a game will run it on your home computer and it will give you remote access to that computer, on the browser's interface. At this point, there is nothing else to do, but enjoy your game.

If you find it hard to stay away from your favorite games, you can use Rainway to run them anywhere in the world, on any computer.

Pros:
The software lets you play your games from remote computers. There are no complicated settings to be made. The software can stream games while maintaining a high quality and a low latency.

Cons:
You may have to shut down Skype, due to a conflict over a port.
