Introducing Castor – Split and Stream your PC!

Introducing Castor – Split and Stream your PC!

Castor is a new app that will allow you to stream from your PC to an Android device using a process known as paravirtualization. This means you can allocate a portion of you PC’s resources to create a virtual machine environment which can then be used for game streaming without disrupting your main PC’s functionality.

To access Castor, check out Black Seraph’s Patreon page. You will need to subscribe to the $10 tier for at least one month but can cancel after that if you’d like. While you are a member, consider grabbing Black Seraph’s custom firmware builds for the RG552, PowKiddy X18S, and various GPD devices.

Castor is made though a package of open-source and prorpeitary tools all compiled into one simple, user-friendly package. If you would like to see the modified GPL & MIT-licensed components of Castor, here is the GitHub page. This includes the mirror driver, patched Sunshine & the NAT-compatible Android Moonlight client.

Beelink SER5 Review — $450 Ryzen 5600H Mini PC

The new Beelink SER5 (Ryzen 5 5600H) packs a LOT of power inside a tiny form factor — it can run flawless GameCube and PS2 at 1080p, and much more — and it is very capable for non-gaming tasks too. I’m excited to test this one and show why I think it’s the best mini PC deal you can find under $500 right now.
