An open source implementation of NVIDIA GameStream clients

What is Limelight?

Limelight is an open source implementation of NVIDIA's GameStream protocol. We reverse-engineered the protocol used by the NVIDIA Shield and implemented a set of 3rd party clients.

What does this mean for you? Limelight allows you to stream your full collection of Steam games from your GFE compatible PC to any of your supported devices.


Currently, Limelight is supported for streaming to your PC and to Android. Follow the links for information about how to get Limelight up and running yourself.

What's Next?

Limelight for iOS and Windows Phone are in development. Stay tuned!
