Good afternoon guys,


I'm looking into streaming but as i only have a laptop it is giving me lower frame rates than I would like whilst running the programs and the streaming software.


My question is: Can I link two of my laptops together so that the 1st laptop is running the program I wish to stream, and the second laptop is running the streaming software while capturing the 1st laptop's screen?


I have managed to access each laptop wirelessley but it only seems to e for file sharing, I have also plugged in a HDMI cable to connect both laptops but the screens don't seem to connect.


Basically I want to be using the program on Laptop 1 and have laptop 2 running the streaming software and capturing the 1st laptop's screen so it is not putting too much strain on laptop 1. 


I've Googled around but only seem to find tutorials on how to connect laptops over the network to file share and download software so that my mouse and external keyboard works on two separate machines.


The streaming software I am using is 'Xsplit' if that helps out.


Thank you in advance!
