Steam In-Home Streaming
This week I finally got around to trying the Steam in-home streaming functionality. It works really well!
My two main computers are a Mac laptop that I use for creative purposes and my Windows desktop that I use for fun. My Windows desktop is my main gaming PC and my household media server as well.
One day this week I was curious to actually try in-home streaming. I was on my Mac and needed a break. I knew my desktop was on downstairs. I booted up Steam and picked a Windows only game to play. It gave me a basic prompt telling me that it would stream this from my other computer where the game was installed.
And then I was playing! It was super simple and a great experience overall. It was easy to do and very playable.
It's a feature that I had almost forgotten about entirely, but now that I've used it I'm very impressed.
