How do I use Parsec?
- Create an account on Parsec.tv
- Download the Parsec Client. Parsec is available for any Mac made after 2011 running macOS 10.9+, any PC with this hardware running Windows 7+, or the Raspberry Pi 3. If you’re on a Mac, after downloading the application, you’ll need to right-click and open — double-clicking will not work because we’re not distributed through the app store.
- Open your Paperspace machine via the browser application provided on Paperspace’s console. Please do not use the native application for your machine. This will cause issues with Parsec. If you happen to do this, you’ll need to go back into the browser app, reset your display resolution in the Nvidia Control panel to 1080p or lower.
- Launch the Parsec Server with your Parsec account and save your password for automatic logins. If you want to run Parsec as an Admin to have access to User Access Control screens (Task Manager), please right click and launch Parsec Server as Admin from the Start Menu or Applications.
- Close Paperspace, Open the Parsec Client on your local computer and click connect. You can change settings to optimize the connection (like increasing your bandwidth to improve video quality) in the settings section of the client. Once in awhile, it can take a few seconds for the mouse to appear at launch as Parsec and Paperspace sync video display settings. Please give it a few seconds to appear.
- Click your preferred software & download your favorite games.
- Start Gaming!
