    X2Go even allows you to resume from an X2Go client on another machine. X2Go can buffer for quite a long time when you try to play a video.

    Client settings:
    – Session:
    – (Custom desktop startup command, for example startxfce4)

    – Settings:
    – I don’t use fullscreen mode (and use Linux program “devilspie” to immitate seamless mode)
    – Enable DPI
