Steam In-House Streaming.

You can now stream your library to other computers on your network. Your inputs are sent back to your remote system running the game, and the display is sent to your current system.

I've been reorganizing my living room and computers and gaming this past week, so I might be able to make use of this. Not 100% sure yet.

huh, curious if my girlfriend's ancient macbook could work with my big comp so I can sit in the armchair playing steam games. Must check this out.

Ok, so I tried this today with Dark Souls 2. Consoles are now officially dead to me.

It was a bit laggy over wifi but my router is old and I need to replace it anyway. So I got out a 25 foot cat 6 ethernet cable, because I work in IT and we have things like that naturally. As soon as I plugged in my laptop wired the streaming was flawless. I just stole my PS3's HDMI cable for the HDMI out, plugged in my laptop to my big screen LCD, and launched the game.

It's using my uber PC to render and porting the results over my LAN to the laptop in real time. Slick. Using my 360 controller on the laptop instead of the PC is np.

I was going to make a media box for Steam on my TV for like ohh I dunno the last 5 years and never really did it. Now it's done. Thanks Steam!

*Also now I have an excuse to use Steam Bigscreen with my controller. It's nice so far.
