    Default Valve Works To Empower In-Home Streaming

    Phoronix: Valve Works To Empower In-Home Streaming

    Another Valve Steam Linux client update this week fixes an audio error within Steam's Big Picture Mode but it mostly focuses upon in-home streaming improvements...

    Valve already uses VDPAU on Linux.

    Don't think they'll add VAAPI since you can use VDPAU with just about anything.

    I hope they don't, somebody has to clean up this multiple API madness, and since no distro has done so, Valve is certainly up to the task.

    That streaming idea is nonsense. Who's going to run two machines to play one game? Nobody.

    What about the ability to only need ONE powerful Windows machine in the house. It could be headless, with Steam on autostart. You could stream a game, but also a dekstop application, like Photoshop. It introduces so many possibilites. Of course I'd prefer the Steam client to be open source, but this will do for now.

    I don't think it can be headless though.

    At least not yet.

    It can from what I have read in the comments section to the LinuxActionShow episode where they demoed the in Home Streaming. It might vary from game to game and you might have to start it once with a monitor to get a config file written.

    It's made to bring steam to the living room. Want to play games on your TV, but your HTPC isn't beefy enough? Just run the game on your workstation in another room and stream it.

    Of course YMMV depending on your living arrangements. If you don't have a separate room with a large-screen TV and a comfortable couch, you probably don't need it.
