Hi there
Hope there is a competent mac user / network user here who can help me a little with some problems I have with screensharing.
First, a little about the setup .. Macbook Pro and Mac Mini running both Mac OS Sierra. I use the builtin screensharing function. I have a 80/50 connection that runs completely stable both up and down. I have recently disabled Wifi in my Router state devices and have set an access point from Unify.
The problem comes when I share screen and will sit and work on my mac mini via macbook pro, it lags quite  much, all cursor and things to press, etc. menus .. I have screen sharing changed from adaptive Quality to Full Quality ( it has helped a bit..do I play a movie this is flawless on my Panasonic TV and do I look on the macbook  it is bad ..also installed Kodi which I then tried to install Gears of war 6.7 runs absolutely terrible and you gets frustrated using it relative to lagging and nearly impossible to navigate .. Both machines are hooked up to the same wifi .. MacMini connected to my yamaha amplifier via HDMI and even an hdmi plug up the TV from the amplifier. would of course like to have everything up and running and not as it is now very frustrating to work with. I think I've tried many things,but there must be something I miss? maybe a setting or network problems ?

Screen Sharing is VNC.  It's not meant for processing video.  You need to deal with video directly on the system you're working on.  Video will always lag through any type of screen sharing, because you're basically repainting the entire screen along with the video.

Some screen sharing actually encapsulates each window handle and redraws just those sections that need redrawing, even then, you will not get full frame speeds.  The network is still much slower the the system's graphics bus.  The video will lag through your screen share no matter what you do.
