Hi All

With COVID-19 and being stuck at home I've been trying to stream games to play with friends/family/work of my local machine.

In particular I've found Tabletop simulator to work really well with my tabletop oriented friends.

And Jackbox games good for my less technically oriented friends.

Jackbox is great as it just requires me to stream a video/sounds from my machine, and my less technically inclined friends/family simply use their phones to play along.

The problem i've had is that the streaming doesn't seem reliable.

I've tried:
Hangouts --> Fairly simply for tech illiterate, not sure about stream quality.
Discord --> Complex for tech illiterate, Stream drops out/lags too much
MSTeams --> Not sure yet
Steam --> Family doesn't neccesarily have this.

Has anyone tried streaming games, and can anyone recommend a good app for game streaming, particularly jackbox games?
