  6. August 13, 2017 - Written By Dominik Bosnjak https://www.androidheadlines.com/2017/08/steam-link-streaming-app-now-available-on-samsungs-tizen-tvs.html The Steam Link streaming app is now available for download on a range of Samsung Electronics-made smart TVs powered by the company’s Tizen operating system, Valve confirmed earlier this week. The gaming platform has been in testing for over a month and was developed by Valve with some support from the Seoul-based tech giant. The limited beta period ended a few days back and the Steam Link app appeared on the Smart Hub store shortly after, where it’s now available for download on compatible TVs in all parts of the world. The app is completely free to install and use and comes with no ads, save for Valve’s own daily promotions that show every time you start Steam on any platform. Only Samsung’s 2016 and 2017 smart TV lineups are supported by Steam Link and older models are unlikely to ever be compatible with the service. Likewise, the app is currently relatively limited in terms of physical controller support, though a number of popular gamepads already work with it, including both variants of the Xbox 360 controller, the wired version of the Xbox One gamepad, Logitech F710 and F510, and the Steam Controller. Valve will likely debut support for more controllers in the future, though the company has yet to provide any details on the matter. While the Tizen port of the Steam Link app doesn’t ship with any particular software requirements, users are advised to download the latest version of Tizen for their smart TVs prior to using the tool or they may experience technical issues including frame rate drops and white screens. Upon first launching the app, Steam Link will test your local Wi-Fi speed and recommend a wired connection in case your network is too slow. While it doesn’t clarify on the matter, it seems that a 150Mbps / 30Mbps connection is more than enough for the streaming to work properly, provided that you aren’t trying to cast anything over 1080p. Note that playing fast-paced games like shooters and beat-em-ups is still difficult to enjoy over a wireless connection as the occasional input lag is an issue in this current version of the app, though Samsung and Valve may be able to improve the overall performance of the service in the future. Refer to the gallery below to see how Steam Link for Samsung’s Tizen-powered smart TVs looks in action.
  7. I had read this somewhere as well but don't know for sure. I'll post if I get more info.
  8. From the early stages of Tizen, we have been working hard to continually enhance this open source, standards-based software platform. Today we are using static code analysis tools to automatically discover checkpoints and help developers to investigate the quality of patched codes in a timely manner. To reinforce code analysis, we have consistently added new coding rules and potential defect checkers in our tools while the patched codes were reviewed by subject matter experts, including maintainers. In addition, our continuous integration system automatically triggers the static code analysis tools as soon as each code is committed. Moreover, we have intensively monitored open source codes and regularly patched them to enhance Tizen since the early stage of its development. With support from the Tizen developers’ community, we plan to further expand the capabilities of our analysis tools to examine codes more thoroughly while we continue to proactively propose activities and share progress across the community. We look forward to your continued active participation. View the full article

  12. Samsung Electronics today released the third preview of the Tizen .NET application framework, featuring improved Visual Studio Tools for developing Tizen applications. Since announcing its collaboration with Microsoft on .NET open-source projects such as .NET Core and Xamarin.Forms last November, Samsung has steadily released preview versions of Tizen .NET to help developers build better apps. The second preview brought support for TV application development, to go along with the mobile support introduced in the first, and improved Visual Studio Tools for Tizen with several new features, including a Project Wizard, Manifest Editor, Emulator Manager, Emulator Control Panel and Certificate Manager. The third preview allows you to create self-contained applications that will run on Tizen devices without pre-installed .NET runtime. Visual Studio Tools for Tizen also features two new tools: Log Viewer and Device Manager. The former helps developers debug their application by capturing all the events logged by the platform and the application; the latter provides information about connected Tizen devices and emulators for application debugging, and improves tools that were introduced in previous previews. < Log Viewer and Device Manager > The third preview enables a large number of Tizen's multimedia features such as Camera, Wave Player, Tone Player, Media Streaming and Screen Mirroring. Developers also have access to other Tizen platform-specific features such as Messages, Bluetooth, Voice Control, Input Method and FIDO (Fast IDentity Online). In addition, Tizen.Xamarin.Forms.Extension allows developers to enhance their applications with rich UI components such as buttons, popups, grids and calendar views. The next preview release of Tizen .NET will coincide with Tizen Public Milestone 1 in May. Samsung will begin shipping Tizen devices with .NET capabilities later in 2017.
