Moonlight is an open source implementation of NVIDIA's GameStream, as used by the NVIDIA Shield, but built for Linux/OS X/Windows.
Moonlight-pc allows you to stream your full collection of Steam games from your powerful desktop to another PC or laptop running Linux/OS X/Windows.
Moonlight PC will be discontinued in the near future. It will replaced by a significantly better client that runs as a Chrome packaged app on the Chrome Web Store. Follow the Chrome port here.

To launch Moonlight from a command line:
java -jar moonlight-[os].jar -host address [options]
-host[address] the address to connect to. This can be a hostname or ip address.
-pair[address] the address to pair to. This can be a hostname or ip address.
-fslaunch in full screen
-720use 1280x720 resolution (default)
-1080use 1920x1080 resolution
-30fpsuse 30 fps stream (default)
-60fpsuse 60 fps stream
For example, to launch a game from your gaming rig that has the address 192.168.0.100 on your home network in full screen, 720p, and 30fps on a 64-bit Windows computer, your command would look like to
java -jar moonlight-win64.jar -host 192.168.0.100 -fs -720 -30fps
