LaunchBox/Big Box can be streamed through the Steam Link. Do you mean streaming it to Google Stadia? I would assume that should be possible but you would have to use separate streaming software (LaunchBox and Big Box do not do this by themselves).

Google Stadia is server only, you have to buy the games directly from them and there servers stream the video feed to your devices, so you cannot add your own games/programs to the service like you would with Steam and a Steamlink as that is all local using your PC as the server.

Ah, I see. So then that is most likely a no.

thank you I will not get Google stadia

I don't think you understand what Google Stadia even is. It isn't hardware. It isn't even software you download. It's a streaming service that works through Chromecast or web browser (Chrome).

Bigbox/Launchbox can't work through Chromecast because you can't stream external software via Chromecast. You need an app to do that.

In theory, Jason COULD develop a casting feature within Launchbox if he wanted to like Chrome does but I'm certain the practicality isn't worth the effort.

Back to Stadia. Stadia casts via Chromecast. Chromecast can only handle one cast at a time to one device. You can't cast Youtube and Twitch at the same time. You have to choose. Stadia is just another such thing to choose from.

You get a Chromecast. You subscribe to Stadia.
