You will first need to install the latest Rasbian from here:
Next download Limelight Embedded. Grab the latest limelight.jar and libopus.so from here:
Make sure that your gaming PC has an NVIDIA GTX 600+ graphics card and GeForce Experience installed.
To make things easier, enable SSH on the RPi and tunnel in to the machine. Here are some useful commands:
List compatible PCs
java -jar limelight.jar list
Pair with PC
java -jar limelight.jar pair PC-IP
Map a controller
