Steam In Home Streaming

So I was wondering how Steam in home streaming works?
Maybe you can provide me some YouTube videos or something to read about it?
Could i stream from my computer to a laptop that has a broken screen but for the most part it works just fine (its a bi dated)

If I'm in the wrong forum please tell me where to post!
Thanks :)

    I figured That I can easily obtain a laptop with a broken screen and decent parts for cheap and I can just connect it to my TV.
    That way I would have a very cheap and small computer in my living room that can play any game I wan't.
  3. What will be your host system? a quad core cpu is recomended for that function.

    For starters i have used this service, and all that is required is that you have to log into 2 pc's on the same network and the host pc be powerful enough to handle both the game and the streaming overhead. mind you i really have no lack of power considering the pc specs in the description so if you have anything remotely similar to that you will have no problem. if you are unsure of your pc specs just list them here and we will let you know

    I have a Core i7 4790k (4.4ghz), 8gb of ram and a R9 270 overclocked gpu, I can handle streaming for sure, but do I need a powerfull system for the host or whatever, someone said that I need a quad core, can I stream into a pc that only has a two core cpu? (pretty weak one)

    The pc that you are streaming to doesn't matter. As long as it works and has steam. So the one with the 270 would play the game while the laptop would receive the picture.

    Cool, I will try and get my hand on a dirt cheap laptop from like 2009 with a broken screen and see it this works!

    Im not to sure but i think streaming from different a resolution may cause problems. So streaming from a 1080p monitor to a 720p laptop may cause a problem. Im not entirely sure though.
