Do you know if the "server" machine (running Windows in my case) needs to be left unlocked as with Steam In-Home Streaming? Steam needs the monitor to be on and the machine to be unlocked... quite a let down IMHO.

I run a windows server and utilize gamestream quite regularly (with shields I have no reason to utilize moonlight over gamestream, but experience should be identical)

I always leave it unlocked. I never have any of my personal computers locked including the server. I let all the clients sleep through power settings. I leave the server always on, display always on

After all the initial nvidia resolution setup, steam, origin, etc - I can gamestream with the monitor unplugged. I don't have a dedicated monitor for the server, so there have been times where I replaced the OS drive or messed around with uefi where I had to move a monitor upstairs to fiddle with things. I regularly remote control it with ChromeRDP. I also have the integrated graphics enabled with the "virtual monitor" hack so that I can run quicksync in handbrake

There is the Moonlight Game Addon for Kodi. Read http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=220965 and https://github.com/kodi-game/game.moonlight

But it is not ready to use as Kodi's core binary addon system code reworking for Kodi v18 is still ongoing. See garbear comment:

And to touch on the topic a bit more, I'm working on a redesign on RetroPlayer that will make encoded video a first class citizen. Currently we use private VideoPlayer APIs for this. I expect this to change over the summer for the shader project.
