Steam Link now available on Linux
The Steam Link app is now available for 64-bit x86 Linux systems. A wired network is strongly recommended.

You can get it here from Flathub:
https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.valvesoftware.SteamLink
Make sure you follow the setup guide on that page before you install, if you have never used flatpak before.

Special thanks to Collabora[www.collabora.com], for helping make this possible.

nice

Amazing.

Though perhaps you should add a note about the required udev rules to the application metainfo as well, since the app store / flatpak clients will only display that info to users.
Any chance of plain tarball?

This is great to hear

Aha thanks. While I was messing around I grabbed it from the flatpak installation. Compiled ffmpeg-compat-57 which went well but turns out my Qt is a point version too new. I guess flatpak is the best bet here

Can somebody build this for OSMC with a kodi plug-in?

This rocks. We appreciate you guys.

Great! But when will Steam support VA-API hardware encoding for In Home Streaming? It's necessary for AMD GPUs, otherwise it's just impossible to play resource intensive games without massive slowdowns.

Amazing, thanks! :D

Any chance for a aarch64 (ARM) build? x86 was able to run a regular Linux steam client for streaming before, but an ARM SBC (other than the RasberryPI) version would be really cool.

This would be fantastic. Switch and Jetson running Linux would greatly appreciate it.

I'd love to use my Pinebook Pro as a Steam client! It'd be perfect to sit on the couch and play Valheim instead of hiding away in my workroom.
