@druellan Another option could be Retroarch's Netplay.
Simply Austin made a nice Retropie image for Spectrum games.
According to this video review, netplay performs much better on the PC than the Pi

Oh, thanks for that!

A couple of member use Retroarch for streaming, I'm going to ask about it, but if I remember correctly, the FUSE core for Retroarch is not Netplay capable. I might be wrong, though.

There could be some way to install other emulators? something to ask the Retroarch developers.
The Pi version seems to support FBZX and two Fuse core versions : https://github.com/retropie/retropie-se ... X-Spectrum

From the netplay-faq on Libretro's site
Which cores work for netplay?
* On a technical level, every core that supports save states should work but the performance requirements may be too high for it to work in any practical level.
Save states.. Is not RZX and rollback what this is about? Maybe @serbalgi , @Fred et al. have overlooked the possibility to support Netplay on Retroarch :)
I guess Libretro only supports open source emulators. Apart from Fuse, another one that supports RZX is Unreal Speccy Portable. By the way, @PeterJ USP has an addon for Chrome browser that may be useful to support playing online.

Interesting! Save states is the way EmuZWin does it AFAIK, and Plus-F is doing something similar but fragmenting the packets to improve latency.

The fuse team don’t make the libretro plugin for Fuse, I do know that the person that does was investigating upgrading it to a newer version and I think it could be expanded to support lots more of these features (snapshot states are absolutely possible as far as I can see).

Yes, I didn't know about this either because my old PCs don't support Chrome. NaCl means native client. C/Cplus emulators running natively on the Browser? :shock: this could be useful for other emulators which are coded in C/Cplus like Fuse and Zesarux

Thanks for considering "snapshots states" !!

I've learnt about Fuse-Libretro
https://github.com/libretro/fuse-libretro
supports save states. Could this be used for Retroarch's Netplay?
