    Hey

    This is a fantastic piece of software. I really need the viewer and driver to run on the same computer, as in connect to itself. Is there a way to tweak it to allow me to connect to 127.0.0.1/localhost? Thanks!!!

    Why you ask?

    I’ve got a BIG monitor occupying a ton of space. For live streaming I need to share a FULL SCREEN to enable certain features. I can’t share my whole screen because that would be too much. I can’t share a portion because that doesn’t enable those features. I’d love to share a Spacedesk display that doesn’t exist, and choose resolution. I do however want to be able to see the content that is being shown on it and that’s where the Viewer comes in. I can open it when I need it. When I don’t I can minimize it without disturbing the feed. All with one big display.

    Hi @shaglord,
    Current spacedesk Windows Viewer app does not support it. But you can try local host connection with spacedesk HTML5 Viewer.
    Just open a web browser (e.g. MS Edge or Google Chrome) on your primary machine then go to http://viewer.spacedesk.net/ and connect to its own IP address or to 127.0.0.1.
    FYI: spacedesk supports 1 HTML5 Viewer connection only.
