DIY Handheld STEAM streaming device for PC games.

252 ratings | 8345 views
Hi, this video shows you a DIY handheld streaming device for Steam PC games. Using a portable 1080p monitor, Steam Link, Anker Power Bank, Mayflash Magic-NS adapter (set to blue mode) and a pair of Nintendo Switch Joy-Con will allow a nice handheld streaming setup. The quality of the stream is entirely dependent on the connection between the PC and router and the Steam Link and router. My Gaming PC is connected via an Ethernet wired cable and my Steam Link is set to allow both 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi signal. As you can see in the video the games run well. In the video I mentioned that the streaming has improved since I increased my internet connection. To save any confusion this is because I received a new router and not because of the increase in speed as the incoming speed shouldn't play a part on internal streaming. Let me know in the comments if you have done or thinking of doing a similar set up. Many thanks Vince.

Another cracking video Vince! Have you got a link to the monitor? I’d love to get my hands on one 👍🏻
Macgyver 15 (22 days ago)
My Mate VINCE found it on Amazon easily. That’s a steal for 1080P and at that price point it’ll do my needs lovely mate 👍🏻
My Mate VINCE (22 days ago)
Thanks mate, I got it from Amazon in the UK, it is a WIMAXIT 10.1 inch (model number M1020). I think it was approx. £80. You will be able to find better but this was quite cheap for a 1080p. If you are happy with 480p or 720p then you can get really cheap monitors :-)

Hey Vince, how did you make the Steam Link run off of USB power? Just splice together the power cable with a USB end?
Sung Lim (22 days ago)
Thanks for the reply! I ended up just using my Steam Link power cord and spliced it last night. All I need is some heat shrink now. Thanks for the inspiration :)
My Mate VINCE (22 days ago)
Yeah, exactly that. I already had one made from I think it was the PlayStation TV so I didn't ruin my Steam Link power supply. The Steam Link is 5V so as long as the power bank has enough Amps to power the Steam Link then it will work fine. You will also be able to buy a USB to DC Barrel Jack lead from eBay and Amazon to save you splicing one together :-)

Why would the rest of the world call it a 'router'? In the USA, sure.

Hi Vince you mentioned that you recently upgraded your Internet but doesn't steam link work over lan anyway?
Salamander Pants (24 days ago)
Thanks for clarifying :-)
My Mate VINCE (25 days ago)
Sorry that part of the video was completely misleading so I added it into the description. The upgrade meant I received a new router which has improved my streaming. The incoming speed doesn't impact it as far as I know. I always had a wired network but the wireless part has really improved as I can now use both 2.4 and 5GHz so I presume the Steam Link is using the 5GHz :-)

Great video but I would love some links on items to buy
Green Strqfe (25 days ago)
Great video keep up the good work. I can't try this because my wifi sucks tho...
David Bradley (25 days ago)
i am literally gonna make one of these. Top notch dude! x

It's not widely known, but you don't need the steam dongle. The steam link has one built in, as in you can just connect the steam controller to the link itself (if you hold A when you turn it on, it will then switch to another receiver in the area) great job on the video vince!
My Mate VINCE (25 days ago)
That's great information. I will test this out later. Thanks for sharing:-)

Mans a genius

Hey Vince the steam usb dongle used to connect your controller to the pc can actually be removed from your setup. There's a dongle built into the steamlink. Simply hold the steam button plus A when powering on your controller to switch between the dongle and the steam link.
My Mate VINCE (25 days ago)
Thanks, I just read another comment about this. I didn't realise beforehand so thanks for commenting :-)

Hi again Vince
iVirtualPlays (26 days ago)
Another thing you can do is you can setup a shortcut for LaunchBox Frontend and you can play Dreamcast, Gamecube, PS2, Sega Saturn games etc.
iVirtualPlays (25 days ago)
Launchbox has a big picture mode it's called BigBox you have to pay for but it is cheap.
My Mate VINCE (25 days ago)
Thanks, I need to look into this. I will Google and YouTube Launchbox to learn about it. I would like to be able to stream over some Sega Master/Mega Drive games :-)
SCOEN (26 days ago)
Omg I was gonna do a video making something similar but I guess not now lol
My Mate VINCE (25 days ago)

I'm not sure if Steam streaming is bad with my wifi or I'm just spoiled by my gaming monitor.
Anthony Alvarez (26 days ago)
You can buy a bluetooth controller for android, a phone and use moonlight to stream. But like you said when i use steam stream seems to run a lot better than nvidia option.
OfficerBob (24 days ago)
How's the latency using bluetooth controllers? Do you have any recommendations?
iVirtualPlays (26 days ago)
Anthony Alvarez Yeah but not everyone has an NVIDIA GPU.
Mark Harris (26 days ago)
What cable are you using that goes from the monitor to the battery bank? Did that power to usb cable come with the monitor?

This is smart. Would be better with a touchscreen monitor as well. Although that would bump the price up a bit.
