We are excited to announce Vagon Streams!

Vagon Streams, enable you to stream your applications and experiences directly from the browser.

Let's walk through the dashboard together and explore the features of Vagon Streams. 🤗

1. Application Type Selection

You can stream both Windows and Linux applications with Vagon Streams. If your application requires a custom installation flow, you can contact us to get assistance.

2. Upload Application Folder

You can simply start by dragging and dropping to upload your application file to your Vagon Streams dashboard.

The upload process will depend on your local connection speed, but we are doing our best to make this process faster for you.

  • Preparing a Compressed File

    While uploading your project to Vagon Streams, you must consider the important points listed below.

    • The compressed file must be in .zip format.

    • The compressed file must include all necessary project components and the main executable file in .exe format.

    • The main executable file must be inside the compressed file root directory.

3. Application Executable & Details

After uploading your compressed file, the initial modal window will appear on the screen. The system will automatically list the executable files inside your compressed file, and you can choose the file you would like to run automatically for your Streams.

Following the executable file selection, you can give a name to your application and upload an application logo for it.

  • Application Name will only be used inside the dashboard, and it won't be visible to your visitors.

  • For the Basic and Pro plans, the application logo will only be used inside the dashboard, however, for the Enterprise plan users, Vagon Streams logo will be replaced with the uploaded application logo on the application connection page.

4. Choose a Performance to Run

According to your application requirements, you can choose the best performance for it. If you need more performance options, just contact us.

  • The performance selection may limit the region coverage selection according to the performance availability in selected regions. Please check the Coverage page to learn more about region coverage.

5. Set Up Controls

After setting the initial information and uploading your app, you have to choose the cursor control preferences for your application.

Mouse Control

If your application is optimized and developed for the mouse cursor inputs, you can choose mouse control.

360 View Control

If your application is optimized and developed for 360 view control like first-person shooter games, you can choose 360 View Control mode.

6- Application is Ready!

Your application is ready to create Streams now! Let's move forward with the Stream Link creation process.

7- Choose the Application

If you haven't created any Streams yet, when you go to the Streams tab, you can directly start by choosing the application you would like to stream, otherwise, use the New Stream button to start.

Then, you can create multiple Stream Links for all your applications. Just start by choosing the application you would like to create Stream Link and move on.

8- Set Coverage

Depending on the location of your visitors you can choose available service locations for your Streams between the 20 different regions Vagon Streams can be used. When your visitors try to connect to your Stream, the nearest location will be assigned for them to provide the best experience.

Capacity Management Methods will provide you the opportunity to manage visitor load and experience according to your unique needs. They will ease the integration process for you and manage your Stream Machines on your behalf regarding your selection.
