In order to stream an Unreal Engine application, a few simple steps are required. The Pixel Streaming Plugin is not active by default and must be activated manually. To do this, open the "Plugins" menu under the "Edit" tab in the Unreal Engine Editor. Under the category "Graphics" you will find the Pixel Streaming Plugin. After checking the "Enabled" box, the editor must be restarted.
Presenting performance-heavy Unreal Engine 4 applications often brings low-powered devices to their knees. Large and graphically high-quality projects are therefore not suitable for every terminal device. With Pixel Streaming, performance-intensive Unreal Engine applications can be made available How can this be achieved? This article shows you how.
Pixel Streaming streams Unreal Engine applications, comparable to Youtube or other streaming services. In contrast to conventional streaming services, this stream can be controlled via mouse and keyboard and the application can be launched on a virtual computer instance using cloud computing. The consumer can conveniently operate the application from the web browser without any additional software. In the following sections, the process is explained using the example of a Windows 10 (64-bit) instance and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Cloud computing is the relocation of computing power. These computer resources are not used locally (on one's own PC). They are provided in the form of a virtual computer via the Internet and are device-independent. There are many cloud computing providers to choose from. In this article, we will focus on the setup with AWS (Amazon Web Services). AWS is an established cloud computing provider whose services are used by companies such as Netflix or Dropbox.
Pixel Streaming is an easy way to present Unreal Engine games or applications over the Internet. Especially for customers who do not have the necessary know-how or hardware, Pixel Streaming is an excellent way to interact with the application. If Pixel Streaming is to be the transmission medium of choice, a few days should be planned for the setup. It may take several days for AWS to enable the virtual processors.
