A developer called jakibaki on GitHub claims that his new app allows for full-resolution streaming to the Nintendo Switch. This may enable Xbox controller-esque interfaces with PC games - all of them, according to jakibaki. This new creation, called In-Home-Switching, is described as capable of delivering 720p-resolution screen mirroring on the Switch at 40 to 60 frames per second (fps).
Unlike other 'PC to Switch' solutions of the past, the developer asserts that this new offering has minimal latency and allows for full control over the content streamed. However, this may depend on individual set-ups and on that of a given network and its connections. In addition, the user will obviously have to set their computer's resolution to match that of the Switch. Finally, the developer has yet to add audio support to this form of streaming.
Those wishing to try this app for themselves will need to download and install the drivers and release linked to on the In-Home-Switching GitHub page. The PC will also have to match the Switch's IP address, which can be done through the In-Home-Switching.exe the release will install on the PC. This can be done on Windows 8 or later, unfortunately; jakibaki plans to roll out support to other platforms such as Linux in the future.
