I have a brand new PC and I'm making some arma 3 videos but I'm having the issue where I never wanna record when I'm home. Is there a way that I could edit the video away from my PC with my laptop? (It's a Asus chrome book) all I'm looking for is a program or something that would allow me to stream the video and edit or remote live edit on my PC that is fast enough and good quality.

Put it like this. I work in a Dell building where I remote into users computers daily. We used fiber optic connections, which is pretty fast. I still have a lag issue. So with trying to edit a video (especially editing that time line) is going to be fast.

I don't know if it would work since he mentioned it in passing, but I have a friend who takes a lightweight netbook to school but from there runs all intensive stuff on his home computer via TeamViewer.

Trying to edit it remotely is not going to be fast. For one, BOTH connections must be FAST enough with a decent ping (less than 10ms). Also, unless you will have 1:1 sessions, there will be a lag, and it will get frustrating. Why not just get get a USB 3.0 hard drive, and transport the video?

a chromebook usually has a very weak cpu, it runs a linux distribution customized that usually doesn't have access to any video editing tool apart from the tools offered to run inside google chrome web browser

it should be better to get a cheap gaming laptop or a workstation type laptop with a 4 cores cpu to do the video edition

Editing video remotely will be slow, no matter what connection you use. TeamViewer or otherwise.
You're trying to pump a LOT of data up and down.
