    Thanks for the comments folks. I'm sorry if we're not rolling out features fast enough. I can tell you that resolution switching, remote audio, remote file sharing and WOL are top priority Fluid features at the moment that we will be implementing incrementally.

    Hello, 

    We are solution provider based on mini PC for replace VDI for some customer who doesn't want to pay virtualization solutions. you can check out our website http://www.NUCserver.com

    We been looking for high performance remote desktop solutions which can replace RDP and Windows Terminal Service because of license issues.

    I think Fluid is most closed solution to our needs (Frankly speaking, PCoIP is best but expensive)

    At this moment, Fluid not support sound yet.

    Please let me know when can you release new version of Fluid which support sound and USB redirection  & Fluid client for Android device.

    We are using android 7.0 or higher version supported TVbox based client machine.

    If you interesting our new RDI(Real Desktop Infrastructure) solutions and can co-work, 

    read this article : https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FNUCserver%2Fposts%2F1927260914158976

     

    I will contact your business department soon.

    one more comment.

    We are testing Fluid on 3 type of Intel NUC mini PC.

    NUC5i5MYHE gen5 i5 2 core 4 thread


    NUC7i7BNH gen7 i7 2 core 4 thread

    NUC7PJYH gen7 pentium silver 4 core 4 thread

     

    What i realized via test, Fluid using a lot of CPU power but not much GPU.

    All of these CPU support quick sync.

    Fluid support quick sync and HW acceleration for intel GPUs?

    Hi,

     

    Are there any plans to get Fluid support on Linux (most notably Ubuntu)?  I have two Linux machines I use VNC on that I'd love to see this technology using.

     

    Thanks,

    Jay

    I am a new Jump convert (from Logmein).  I am having a problem switching users on one of my remote Macs. The mac is running El Capitan and has 2 user accounts, one administrator level and one standard level.  I originally installed Jump Desktop Connect on that mac's administrator level user.  I can remotely connect to that user account fine with Jump Desktop, but when I try to switch to the other user account (a standard account) on the same mac, it fails.  Fast user switching will bring up the login for the other user, I can enter the password, but then Jump goes back to the original user.  I have remotely restarted the computer and only logged in to the standard user account, but still Jump just opens the administrator user account.  Both appear to be logged in when I go to the login page, but I cannot access the second user.  Is there something I am doing wrong?

    Its really "funny" right?

    Fluid seems to be great, but without Audio its use-cases are very limited... No Video, no Gaming and so on.

    Will Audio ever be implemented? Doesnt look like this... :-(

    @Alexander, Audio will come to Fluid. 

    @Jin Lee, Thanks for the benchmarks. What resolution are you running at? Fluid does have some GPU offload, however you're right in thinking it doesn't utilize QuickSync...yet. This is on our radar - but this is going to come after we add Audio support.

    @Jump Remote Desktop Support Team:

    I was able to add a custom HiDPI resolution in macOS using this tool: https://github.com/xzhih/one-key-hidpi

    Even if I'm now able to get the correct ratio on my iPad Pro 12.9 (1366x1024), I sadly don't get HiDPI/Retina on my iPad (using VNC or Fluid), I just get 1366x1024 while my monitor displays 1366x1024 HiDPI. I've tried it with the Screens app using VNC and I get 1366x1024 HiDPI/Retina resolution, so it should be possible.

    And of course it would be awesome to get 1366x1024 with HiDPI using Fluid!

    Hi Felix,

    Isthis tool https://github.com/xzhih/one-key-hidp also able to set the resolution to 1194x834 (HiDPI)? That's the HiDPI resolution of my iPad Pro 11"

    And I also noticed that most of the documentation is in Chinese. How do I install this tool?

    Hi Ram,

    yes it should work, at least Ive tried 1194x834 myself already for a friend!

    You have to disable SIP (just google it if you never heard of it) and then you have to run the command like explained on the github site.

    Nevertheless Ive got an error saying SIP wouldnt be disabled, which was definitely the case. So Ive downloaded the script, and searched for the part where it is checking if SIP is disabled. Turned out that it did look for an different kind of output when ckecking for SIP. So I just changed it to *disabled* and after that it ran totally fine. If you also get an error saying SIP is enabled and dont know how to modify the script, I can of course send you my version but I would try the official one first.

    While running the script you have to choose "Manual input resolution" (before that just 1 for enabling HiDPI and the second step depends on your machine) where you then can enter 1194x834 and maybe all the other high resolutions you wanna use on your Mac. Im not sure right now whether existing HiDPI resolutions would vanish after running the script when not entering them in manual mode. Should be a little bit of try and error, but 1194x834 definitely works in the end and I was always able to restore the original config.

    You should also use a tool like Display Menu (App Store) or RDM (Retina Display Manager) to easily select the 1194x834 resolution. Alternatively you can see all resolutions in the macOS monitor settings https://osxdaily.com/2015/08/27/show-all-display-resolutions-external-screen-mac/

    Hi Felix,

    Thanks. For some reason the script did not work for me. Even after disabling SIP and executing the script as a root user. Then I managed to get a 1194x834 custom resolution to work via SwitchResX. It does cost 14 euros (after a 10 day trial) but it seems to do the job.

    But in order to have HiDPI to work, I had to connect via VNC and not Fluid. And under settings I needed to set the quality to "Very High (Retina Quality)"

    Just downloaded the app today. Installed on my iPhone, iPad, Windows PC, and MacBook Pro. Am I missing something, or is there still no audio? I find the settings for audio, they're all turned on by default, but I still only get sound through the remote machine, not through the local machine.

    @James To stream audio for Macs you need to a couple more extra steps: https://support.jumpdesktop.com/hc/en-us/articles/360035566472-Mac-How-to-stream-audio

    Thanks, I'm able to get sound when remoting into my MacBook now. Still no luck with my PC though. With my current set up, I have my PC running sound through a receiver and doing Dolby Atmos. I changed it to just 2-channel stereo, but still no luck.
