StreamController Application on Linux for the Elgato Stream Deck

Teal colour background with white titling stating StreamController for Elgato Stream Deck. On teh right side is an image of a black Elgato Stream Deck with 15 buttons on it arranged in three rows.

StreamController is an elegant Linux application designed for the Elgato Stream Deck, offering advanced features like plug-ins and automatic page switching to enhance your streaming and productivity setup. It can support multiple Stream Decks together. A very useful feature is automatic page switching, which means you do not always need an available button on the deck’s main page to switch to other pages, as those pages can be activated automatically when the app becomes active.

I’m using StreamController to view and manage my Home Assistant application, Kdenlive, spreadsheet, Snowrunner and OpenBVE games, OBS Studio, and more. I demo this in the video and also show how buttons can be configured and used.

If you are a Windows user you may still find some of the use cases interesting to try out on the Elgato Windows software, and even if you don’t yet own a Stream Deck, the video may help motivate why you could find one very useful. For Linux users, this also inspires the confidence to buy an Elgato Stream Deck, as you can see the level and type of support available right now for Linux users.
