Steam Link now in BETA on Raspberry Pi
The Steam Link app is now available in beta on the Raspberry Pi 3 and 3 B+ running Raspbian Stretch

To install, run the following from a command line:
curl -#Of
sudo dpkg -i steamlink_1.0.7_armhf.deb

To run, you can launch it from the Games menu, or run the following from a command line:

The first time you run it, it will download the full app and create a desktop shortcut, and automatically update as needed.

Please report any bugs and feedback on the Raspberry Pi discussion forum.

Finally! I've been having to swap my only 3rd and final HDMI port on my TV between my SteamLink and RetroPie for a year now.

Edit: Works pretty damn good. Possibly a little extra lag on the decoding side. Hard to say. My games are all around 20ms or above now. I remember routinely getting about 15ms on the hardware SteamLink.

Wow! Steam Universe really is expanding. I just worked out how easy it is to use Steam Link App to stream virtual steam machines in the cloud without using any VPN or fancy pants stuff.

Being able to use raspi as streaming client is a remarkable privilege and is amazing.

Thank you Valve. Steam Link App is awesome.

Any possibility of this coming to x86(_64)? The desktop client STILL doesn't support manual IP entry. This would be great to use on a standalone HTPC box.

Anyone know if it's possible to run a wireless Xbox 360 controller through the pi? Or know of a howto install it?

Can I use the full desktop or just steam in big picture?

Outstanding! I can't wait to get home and give it a shot!
Any plans on open sourcing this or any plans on a future Nintendo Switch app in the future? :special:

This is just some script to download the actual application which fails because the included Qt 5.9.6 version is linked against (whereas Arch already has It might be possible to replace the bundled Qt version with the system version and fix that issue like that, but I'm not sure of the ABI compabitility between Qt versions.

This is amazing! Love my Steam Link but this makes so much sense. PI and Android apps. <3
