Do you guys notice any difference regarding image smoothness between the steam link hardware and samsung app?
I have tested only in the app, and I get micro stutters every few seconds. It kills the experience for me.
I tested both in wired mode (ks7000). I also get micro stutters with the steam app which kills the experience. The numbers on TV app (performance overlay) are actually better, probably duo to higher processing power for decoding, but the experience is not smooth because of the microstutters. Experience is much better/smoother on steam link. Hope they get the microstutters on steam app fixed.
I tested the app (LAN on ks7000 TV )and all seems to work fine. Had some difficulties to pair my steam controller but manually adding a controller in the setting menu using a regular mouse did the trick. In comparison to my steam link the latency seems according to the "performance overlay" even a bit better by 5 ms, which is great. There unfortunately is a bit of jitter during gameplay which does make the gameplay a bit unsmooth. Therefore I will still be using my Link until the jitter is gone. I have been greatly enjoying my steam link and controller, and a proper working app would be even better. I will test again after next update. Thanks steam!
