Open a terminal, and enter: Once Moonlight is installed it must be paired with Ge Force Experience.
This allows Game Stream to broadcast select video games from the host PC where the games are installed to the Raspberry Pi running Raspbian.
Note that games feature a range of controller and keyboard and mouse functionality.
Once Ge Force Experience and Game Stream are configured, it’s time to set up Moonlight.
This proprietary Nvidia software features game-ready drivers, game optimization, and streaming capabilities.
This is what will ultimately cast the video games installed on your PC to the Raspberry Pi running Moonlight.
Additionally, you’ll need the Ge Force Experience software.
That means Moonlight should function on distros like Ubuntu and OSMC.
To run games, open a terminal and type: When launching games, you’ll need to specify the resolution and frame rate.
While the Raspberry Pi handles 1080p pretty well, 60 frames per second (fps) 1080p performance was awful.
However consoles provide the comfort and relaxation of living room gaming. But a Raspberry Pi can serve as a perfectly functional do-it-yourself (DIY) link box, not merely retro gaming.
Link boxes make it possible to stream games from a PC to a TV. With just a Raspberry Pi, compatible video card, and open source software, you can stream Steam games to your TV.
My Raspberry Pi 2 handles 1080p, 30 fps streaming perfectly. However, a Raspberry Pi 3 and Ethernet connection offer the best performance. There’s Steam for Linux and Steam OSSince its inception, gaming has almost always been more fun with multiple players, a practice that has moved online.
