The mobile gaming world is growing day by day. And the demand for mobile game streamers has increased. There are a lot of different ways that you can use to stream these kinds of games, and we are going to go over them one by one.
Smartphones of this day and age are becoming so powerful you can stream from them directly. This has been available for a few years now. The most used streaming platforms have this ability built into their application, so you don’t need any other apps.
Another way of streaming mobile games is by using emulators. You can play the game on the emulator then use the streaming software of your choice on your PC to stream it. This is one of the most popular ways of streaming mobile games. This is such a used method that big games like PUBG Mobile, for example, have released an official emulator for the game.
This method is the most expensive on this list, but it’s straightforward to use. All you have to do is get a capture card, either external or internal, connect it with the appropriate cables; you might need to buy adaptors or dongles for this one. And that’s it; after all that part, you can stream with the streaming software of your choice.
Screen Mirroring Applications
This method also comes with a cost in most cases; it depends on which app you are you using and if you are using the pro version of it. The most popular apps for this method are Vysor and APower Mirror; there is a free version for both apps, but you need the pro version if you decide to take streaming seriously and good quality stream since, in the free versions, the quality will lack.
I could’ve put Scrcpy at the screen mirroring applications, but I think it deserves its part on this list. Scrcpy is a free and open-source screen mirroring application. This app is only for Android so, apologies iPhone users. Genymobile developed Scrcpy, and you can find the app on GitHub. It’s straightforward to use, and you can find a lot of tutorials online on how to set it up if you are having problems. Unfortunately, this app only casts the screen and not the audio as well, but there is a workaround for that, you can use an AUX cable for the audio. This is a great option, and the only thing you have to buy is some cables since you might also need to buy an audio splitter to listen to the game audio yourself. And as usual, you will use the streaming software of your choice to stream the game.
So these are a few options on how you can stream mobile games. And with the mobile gaming community on the rise and the eSports for these games, you might want to consider looking at this side of the gaming world.
