Steam

  • Hi everyone,


    How about Steam? Are there plans to integrate steam into LibreELEC?
    I think, a huge amount of users would look forward see steam support for libreelec.

  • I guess it could be available as an add-on some day, lrusak is the man to answer this as he's the one who developed and played with steam add-on for oe.


    Meh. From. Phone.


  • Not really possible. LibreELEC is 64 bit only and doesn't support multilib.


    There is a chance using docker to get it to work, but I've have limited success from what I've tried.

    Could it be utilized if run under CHROOT ? on devices , ie running chroot ubuntu under LibreElec
    i was about to post this as a question for wetek play but it may help the OP to get steam on his device if it is possible :)

    I also like the idea of steam within libreelec. Specially with the upcoming game section / retro player.
    Is support for multiblib impossible? Or is there hope to have multilib and steam one day?

  • In my opinion it defeats the purpose of LibreElec if other major options are supported.


    LibreElec is meant as a minimal system to run Kodi. If there are add-ons or docker packages, that is fine. As long as the base of LibreElec stays minimal.


    If you want more options, you are better off using a suitable light Linux system so you can install any software you want.


    Just my opinion.
