    I saw this yesterday and tried it out and it's pretty cool. No "lag" for me or the other person watching the stream. Although I noticed there's a delay of about 15 seconds from my computer to theirs. Not a big deal. This beta is looking good to me. It's really cool to be able to do this and I'm planning on letting anybody watch my games If they want. It is kind of creepy I guess though lol

    Was this the other day. A feature long overdue. Hell, Xfire had this feature in 2006. Back when Xfire was actually worth something and run by people with brains in their heads.

    I thought it was available on both Mac and PC. I guess not. Yes I mistakenly labeled this thread as os x.
    A little more testing with this shows that it works pretty slick. I have it set up for public streaming so anyone can watch me play.
