Valve's in-home streaming service has now moved out of public beta and into full blown release, allowing users to stream games from one computer to another within their home network.

The news was announced today through an official update on the Steam In-Home Streaming public page, which noted that you’re only able to stream from a PC running Windows, with support to SteamOS, Linux, and Mac OSX coming soon. Those looking to utilise the rather handy streaming service can find the in-home streaming page that details three easy steps to start the service.

Since its reveal late last year the service has undergone a number of rather interesting changes, including the ability to stream non-Steam games simply by adding them to your library, though support isn't included for those. We at AusGamers have been testing the service for some time now, and myself personally have been using it as a easy way to branch my desktop computer to my living room TV.

Have you tried the service yet? What are your thoughts on Steam In-Home Streaming? Let us know in the comments!

It does a pretty good Job, I did try running a Origin Game using the Steam Home Streaming by adding the game into Steam Library. I tried FIFA 2013. I did have to change a few settings so it wouldnt show Config page when you start up the game as the steam service wouldn't work. But once i disabled that the game worked but i couldn't get the game controller to work, but that could be because i used old Logitech. I will have to give it ago on the weekend. I wouldn't mind playing some car racing games on my HTPC :)

I've been steam-streaming from Eorl's webcam this whole time.

The best use I found was using my XB360 controller wirelessly from the main box, and just streaming the video through to another computer. I found playing dota (for example), was too laggy with the input lag + video lag even over a gbit network. I haven't tried for about 2 months though.
