It looks like no video frames are getting to the client. I'm not sure why, since the connection can be established between the two devices. Maybe there's an MTU issue?

Are you getting audio? Are you able to move the mouse with the touchscreen?

What type of logs could I provide to help with this? I haven't been able to get this to work on my network since the beta launched.

I'm running a 21:9 setup with a Vega 64 on my desktop. When I try via phone (wifi) or an Nvidia Shield TV (hardwired), I can launch the app, browse, and go into Big Pic Mode. Once I try to launch a game, Steam crashes on the pc. All settings on default.

If I set the app to "start streaming desktop" = enabled, it usually works.

I haven't done enough testing to see if it's the 21:9 issue trying to display on a 16:9 phone/tv. However, I can't seem to find a good thread regarding issues.

Can you post a link to the files in the Steam dumps folder on your computer?

Often Big Picture crashes are issues with video drivers, so you might check to see if there are updated video drivers available for your system.

Thanks!
Is this new with the latest app, or did this happen before as well?

Are you able to connect the phone to your computer and use adb to get a log of the crash?

Thanks!

In topic Touchscreen right-click issue
It is actually supposed to work the way you describe. Tap where you want the right click (it'll generate a left click) and then tap another finger to generate the right click.

I'll contact Samsung and ask about the alternate click function.

Thanks!

It looks like your device isn't able to keep up with 1080p. Maybe try the "Fast" setting, or dropping the resolution to 720p in the advanced streaming settings in the app?
PS4 controllers have Bluetooth disconnect and delay problems on Android. You should be able to connect it wired though.

I tried this and it worked fine, although I had to reduce the streaming resolution to get reasonable performance. Maybe try reducing the resolution in the advanced streaming settings in the app to 720p?
Samsung and Valve have worked together to create a Steam Link app specially designed and optimized for the Samsung Galaxy family of devices. It is now available from Galaxy Apps in the US and Korea, with more countries coming soon.

The Steam Link for Galaxy app requires the following:
  • A computer running Steam, Windows 7 or newer, Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) or newer, SteamOS, or Linux Ubuntu 12.04 or newer
  • A wireless router running at 5 GHz
  • A Steam Controller running the latest Bluetooth firmware, a Microsoft Xbox One S Controller connected via Bluetooth, or other supported controller.

Supported Samsung Galaxy devices:
  • Galaxy S7, S7 edge
  • Galaxy S8, S8+
  • Galaxy S9, S9+
  • Galaxy Note 8

If you are viewing this from your Samsung Galaxy, you can click this link to install:

The house in fata morgana

I tried this game and didn't have any issues. Are you running it windowed or fullscreen? At what resolution?

I just tried this and had mixed results. One older controller worked, but a newer controller and the Xbox One Elite controller both connected but sent no input to Android. I believe this is an Android driver issue.

I tried both the host name and the IP address, nothing.

The host name is DESKTOP-XXXXXXX and the IP address is 192.168.1.XX (I don't write 'em due to obvious reasons)

Maybe because the IP address I tried is IPv4 and I need to use any other?

No that should work... Can you ping your device from the computer? Is your computer wired into the same router that your device connects to over WiFi?

Can you click "Other Computer" and enter the IP address of your computer?
The features needed for relative mouse mode were added in Android 7.0. If you can update your device to Android 7.0 it should work well.

try removing your pc from the link and add it again;
reboot the router;
update video card drivers;
reinstall steam or try the refresh steam files method (shouldn't lose your installed games) https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=265037866&insideModal=0


If I cancel the latest update and run build 495 (default after factory reset), it works fine. It also worked fine before upgrading, so the problem is isolated to 661. Nothing on my setup has changed other than the steam link version. It's freezing whether the host is Linux or Windows, so it's not a driver or network problem.

The only thing that changed in this build was an updated VirtualHere build. Are you using that feature?

We've just released an update to the Steam Link firmware.

Changes:
  • Added streaming support for the new Steam Nintendo Switch Pro Controller configuration support. (vibration is not yet supported)
  • Added the ability to change Xbox controller drivers in the System Settings (the modern driver is recommended for Xbox One controllers)
  • Added support for the GameSir G3w controller
  • The controller test UI can be cancelled by double-tapping B
  • Native applications can turn off Steam Controller mouse mode by setting the environment variable SDL_ENABLE_STEAM_CONTROLLER_MOUSE_MODE=0 before initializing SDL
  • Updated VirtualHere to version 3.6.6 with slight performance improvements

Which encoding options?

Can you also run the following steps so we can diagnose what's happening?
1. Set the settings so it doesn't work
2. Stop Steam
3. Delete the Steam logs folder
4. Start Steam
5. Start streaming, leave it running for 60 seconds
6. Stop streaming
7. Stop Steam
8. Post a link to the Steam\logs\streaming_log.txt from your computer

Thanks!

You need to disable the hardware encoding in the phone and change the resolution of the video stream on it. I had to change to 720p and everything worked as it should.
May it works for someone else.
