Hey all! This might be more of a Raspbian question, but I’m curious about ways to go about streaming gameplay to a Windows PC.
I’m a Twitch.tv broadcaster/streamer. The broadcasting software needs “sources”, whether they are webcams or individual windows such as games, Skype, a web browser, etc.. Sure I could simply use MAME on Windows and capture that, but I’d much rather have a physical arcade cabinet running RetroPie.
Attached is a screenshot of the sources. As long as RetroPie can be “seen” on a Windows PC, that would work.lilbudParticipant03/13/2016 at 22:48Post count: 118
Best thing that I can think of is to use a capture card, No one to my knowledge has been able to stream video from the pi to a computer.djquadParticipant03/13/2016 at 23:48Post count: 3
Thanks for the reply.
Yeah a capture card is common with streamers in order to be able to get consoles like Xbox and Playstation to a PC. Or at least, as a “source” on the PC.
Most of them use AVerMedia cards like at http://gamerzone.avermedia.com//game_capture/live_gamer_hd, and actually at the very bottom of that page, XSplit is the broadcasting software I use.
It seems like it’s promising, but you’re right, streaming RetroPie to a Windows PC is the challenge.herbfargusMember03/14/2016 at 00:14Post count: 1858
Even if you could get it running on the pi the processing power isn’t near enough to be able to streamdjquadParticipant03/14/2016 at 00:41Post count: 3
Would you suggest an actual PC instead of RetroPie then?
