Can I live stream games from my school laptop?

Please note: School-provided devices are viewed as exclusively 'work' tools to be used solely for educational purposes.

You are not able to stream from your school laptop, as:

  1. Your device not capable of streaming through restrictions placed by the school
  2. Your device's hardware isn't optimised for streaming

If you want to stream or play PC games, use a home PC with a dedicated graphics card.


To use your laptop's power more effectively, you can:

  • Close unnecessary tabs and/or programs
  • Plug in your laptop to power
  • Connect your laptop via ethernet
  • Run your device on High Performance/Best Performance
