Streamer Linux Player is an application that will let you play any PC game through a PlayStation 3 with Linux installed on it.

How does it work?

The StreamMyGame Server converts the game's video and audio into a Game Stream and sends it over a local network to another computer, thus allowing the latter to view and play the game with the StreamMyGame Player. I've almost forgot to mention that both the Server and Client solutions are free, so you won't have to pay anything for them. The machine running the Client app can be a PC, PS3, laptop or Linux device, and it does not need to have the game installed on it. Also, the second computer will not experience any lag at all.

The StreamMyGame Player can support resolutions up to Super HDTV 3200 x 2400 on your Linux box. The compatible Linux distributions recommended for PlayStation 3 are Ubuntu and Yellow Dog Linux.

Note on Resolution

Ubuntu may not display full screen on your TV / LCD and will have a black boarder around it. It will display at 1124 x 644 so you cant open a 720p game stream unless you change its resolution. We will release a new page in January about how to change this and display Ubuntu at 720p and 1080i.
