Stream games to RPI 2

Wed Mar 18, 2015 5:24 pm

Hello,
I have a Raspberry Pi 2 model B and I want to to challenge it to be my games-streamer.
To be able to do it, I thought about two good options:
1. Steam streaming platform (which I tried already and it works pretty nice)
2. Nvidia streaming platform (I have GTX 970, but I didn't tried it yet, and have no idea how to configure it)
I didn't succeed to install Steam on my RPI, because the deb installation contains only intel-based processors option.
About Nvidia - I'm not 100% sure that you are able to use it without Nvidia shield, anyways - I didn't succeed to configure it either.
Any ideas?
Thank you

Hello again,
I read about this subject more and found more information about limelight.

I managed to make everything work, but unfortunatly it gets stuck after a few second since it doesn't have enough voltage (I have the rainbow colored square in the top right corner, which is wierd since I have 5V 2.1A psu and a high-quality usb cable). I'm suspecting that my wifi card and my microsoft wireless controller adapter are taking too much electricity and that is what causing this issue.

Is there any way to check my suspicions? Thank you

add
max_usb_current=1
to /boot/config.txt
and reboot

but your cable is probably not good enough
