How to Use a Raspberry Pi and Steam Link to Stream PC Games to Your TV #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Keep the Steam link alive with a Rasperry Pi. Via PC Mag:
Remember the Steam Link, the $50 box from Valve that let you stream games from your PC to any TV in your house? The hardware has been discontinued, but Steam Link is still around as an app for iOS, Android, and—perhaps most intriguingly—the Raspberry Pi.
Using Steam Link on the Pi is very similar to its iOS and Android app, with just a tad more setup. Before moving forward, you’ll probably want to check out our guide to getting started with the Raspberry Pi, if you haven’t already—it’ll detail all the hardware you need for this project, as well as the initial setup of Raspbian, the Raspberry Pi’s operating system. Once you’re done with that, you can proceed with the steps below.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
