hi! i'm violet. i absolutely adore raccoons, they make me smile a lot.

I also care a lot about my friends who are the best, i love you all.

I am very interested in technology, art and videogames but I still don't know what I want to do in my life as a career.

In my free time when i'm not asleep, I like to try new interesting things, make music, 3D models and just have a chat with friends.

I am trans, use female or nb pronouns and i will probably give you a long hug.

anyway, I think I'm done with streaming experiments. This has been fun and interesting, the software behind it has come a very long way in the past 10 years

pretty sure if I use some controller input translation i can hook up any of my game consoles via a capture card and play all of them remotely, it's entirely possible.

Vita TV? Never heard of it

This is the PS4 in my home running via PS4 Remoteplay on my home PC which is being streamed to the Steam link outside my home via Steam Remote play

it's playable

I should also note that ethernet is highly reccomended for this. while it's possible to use it on your phone with wifi you'll need a pretty powerful wifi router (or stable 4G/5G connection from your phone) for it to even be reliable at all. I managed to get it working over the local 4G tower and while it is usable there's quite a few noticeable frame drops,

I've been experimenting with self-hosting game streaming for years now, firstly with Splashtop, then came along Parsec, and now we have straight up access to Steeam's in-home streaming anywhere which is lovely

This is in the UK, of course. I deeply feel sorry for those in the US who have to deal with hard bandwidth caps when it comes to streaming services.

basically what I have set up as a testing environment is comparable to Google Stadia running at the minimum requirements, on two consumer internet connections. Under the correct circumstances this can all be self-hosted at a budget and it works pretty nicely. Valve has basically flipped the switch on Steam to enable anyone to host this themselves as long as they have a minimum upload speed of 5mb/s and download of 5mb/s

for reference: my host PC's internet is in Cambridge running on 8mb/s upload

the client I am running on is a steam link in Stoke on Trent streaming at the minimum requirement of 5mb/s at 720p

everything I have tried has been very playable

Since stepmania worked so well I decided to really put steam's new remoteplay feature to the test by streaming Thumper

Yep, it works. I can see this very much working on Stadia as well
