Namaste!

I’m Naval, and with my group of friends in university, we created a cool modded version of Minecraft. It s really simple click based version adventure like with stories on my school!
We would like that all students of our university to play the game and propose a competition event :)! Great!! but here are the issues we faced brainstorming on the idea


1/ How can everyone play the game without having to install it? Can everyone play it in their web browser by streaming the game from a computer linked to the school server? Is that even possible?

2/ Lots of student dont have super fast computers with gpus integrated ( Some even just have a google tablet)… Is streaming on a browser a good idea? Can 100 people play at same time? Can 1000? Can 10000?

3/ Not a lot of budget so we don’t consider cloud as a solution but the internet at School is pretty fast!

4/ is VDI an option? Are their other technologies to consider?

5/ what kind of hardware is necessary?



Noted that we exported the modded version of Minecraft in windows but also linux version so we can test it on a virtual machine. It’s pretty lite and the 3D inside the game is pretty small…. ( Whole export is 250 Mo). We thought of creating a custom linux distro with the minecraft modded version on it... and we want to plug a sort of raspy on the school local server… but is it even a good idea?

Maybe people from the forum can help us find answers?

Many thanks have a gooooood day

info on used hardwere, and some of the technologies that made stadia possible (from op explanations they need something that can do what stadia does) + more than 50 links to related publications from which those willing to use theirs heads can extract useful info on streaming through browser tech.
even though using your head seems like the hardest thing these days. :rolleyes:

I don't know nothing of this topic, but for cheap hardware that you need you can go with cheap used xeons on AliExpress and related mobo. They have really cheap prices on CPU. For mobo you can go with some decent brand like Asus or gigabyte, you can also find some OEM mobos form Lenovo, hp... Or you can go for some Chinese stuff that should work.
For ram since most of xeons on AliExpress run on ddr3, you can pick ddr3 ECC that's cheaper than standard ddr3
