How to stream PC games to your TV with Raspberry Pi or Pi2. via raspberry.org
Why spend hundreds of quid on a Steam Machine when you can do exactly the same thing with a humble Raspberry Pi? (The B+ is available for $25, which is about £16, at RS Components at the moment, if you’re really on a budget.)
Here are the Possibly Unsafe guys to walk you through setup.
I’ve swiped the instructions below from their YouTube channel:
“Setup: You’ll first need to install the latest Rasbian from here: http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/
Next download Limelight Embedded. Grab the latest limelight.jar and libopus.so from here: https://github.com/irtimmer/limelight…
Make sure that your gaming PC has an NVIDIA GTX 600+ graphics card and GeForce Experience installed.
Pairing: To make things easier, enable SSH on the RPi and tunnel in to the machine. Here are some useful commands:
List compatible PCs java -jar limelight.jar list
Pair with PC java -jar limelight.jar pair PC-IP
Map a controller java -jar limelight.jar map -input /dev/input/eventX mapfile.map
Start streaming java -jar limelight.jar stream -1080/720 -60fps/30fps PC-IP -app Steam -mapping mapfile.map
Make sure to check the Limelight help file in case things have changed since this post!”
Possibly Unsafe’s a rather brilliant channel; I’m making their homemade Sriracha chilli sauce just as soon as I can get my hands on enough habaneros. You can support them via their Patreon if you like the things they do.
