Amazon AppStream

Hi there,

does anyone know if the Unreal license allows streamed rendering like using Amazon AppStream?

Unity does not allow it. I didn’t find anything regarding this for Unreal.

"Streaming and Cloud Gaming Restrictions

You may not directly or indirectly distribute interactive Licensee Content by means of streaming or broadcasting where Licensee Content is primarily executed on a server and transmitted as a video stream or via low level graphics render commands over the open Internet to end user devices without a separate license from Unity. This restriction does not prevent end users from remotely accessing Licensee Content from an end user device that is running on another end user device."

The whole streaming thing is working against per platform licensing, but somehow engine providers need to think about it as i guess streamed games is something that will come more and more.

Cheers
