Check out an unofficial client which lets your Apple TV stream Steam games from a PC

Kevin Smith, the developer behind the MAME emulator that allows you to run classic Nintendo and Sega games, as well as play arcade games on your fourth-generation Apple TV, is back with another cool software: an unofficial client that can stream Steam games from a Windows PC to Apple’s new box.

The solution takes advantage of an iOS edition of Moonlight, an open source implementation of Nvidia’s GameStream technology used by its Shield console.

Moonlight technology makes it possible to stream the full collection of Steam games from a PC to the new Apple TV without needing to run on the Apple TV hardware.

Moonlight for iOS jailbreak app lets you stream Steam games to your iPhone

Although I’m far from being a hardcore gamer, and even less so of a PC gamer, my ears perked up when I heard about Moonlight compatibility on iOS on Reddit. Moonlight lets your stream games from your PC to external devices. With Moonlight for iOS, this means that you can stream your full collection of Steam games to your iPhone or iPad.

Moonlight itself is an open-source Nvidia GameStream client that lets PC owners equipped with the proper hardware to stream games to other computers and Android tablets. An official iOS client is coming, but you can try it now if you’re jailbroken.
