I was wondering if it's possible to have a home brew NES ROM hosted on a server for playing via a web browser.

Are there any webservers/hosts who can do that with a .nes rom?

Thanks for any info.

There are java applets out there to emulate the NES. They aren't exactly up to the quality level of Nestopia however.

Thank you.

I have a very simple .nes rom that I made last year with a lot of help from you guys. Would be interesting to see how I might be able to get it to play via a web browser. Whether someone hosts my ROM or I run some kind of script on my host's server. Interesting.

Thanks again.

You might like http://benfirshman.com/projects/jsnes/ , it's JavaScript so you'll want a browser with horse power.

There's also this one in flash:

The sound has a slight delay so it's disabled by default, as they explain here:

Have a look at Emscripten (a C/C++ to JavaScript "compiler"). I successfully ported my emulator and bundled it with some ROMs:

The issue is that my emulator is not very advanced yet and a pretty beefy computer is needed to run it in a browser properly.
I am sure some more famous emulators out there could easily be ported though.

That's a really cool project. It was wise of them to use an optimizable subset of JS. Even though my computer is too slow for most of the demos, it doesn't take away form the coolness and out-of-the-box thinking of this project.
