Enable the Pixel Streaming plugin

Learn to enable the Pixel Streaming plugin.


Before starting the first step, make sure you have:


The Pixel Streaming Plugin works when you run your Project natively as a Packaged App from your Computer or when you stream it from the Control Panel.

Step 1. Enable the Pixel Streaming Plugin

Go to : Unreal Engine Editor > Edit > Plugins > Graphics > Pixel Streaming > Enabled.

Step 3. Enable the ‘Always Show Touch Interface’ Plugin (Optional)

Not required for all Projects !

For Third-Person Template, this makes sure that users with touch devices can control the streamed App (as long as the Project's Player Controller supports touch input).


If the Project involves a character, and you want to enable input from touch devices ( i.e. phones and tablets) to move that character around the Level, you may want to show the on-screen touch controllers.


Go to : Edit > Project Settings > Engine > Input > Mobile > Always Show Touch Interface

Test your App Locally to check if the Pixel Streaming plugin is enabled.

Package your Project from Unreal Engine.
