    I'd like to see game-by-game options for broadcasting. There are plenty of games I wouldn't mind anyone watching, but there are others that I'd like to set to friend request-only or disabled to avoid distractions. Sure, I can just change it every time I start up a game, but it'd be nice if that was an option.

    Oh man. You can stream your desktop if you play a game with a launcher.

    Invited a friend and blasted sanic at him.

    There's also an inbuilt option to stream the desktop...

    I remember asking for this when I was like 11 years old.

    Hopefully it won't fuck with performance too bad.

    If you have a low end computer then it will fuck your pc up unless you set the broadcasting settings on very low

    The increase in CPU for me is 10%, to get an idea of that, a LAN server on gmod on gm_flatgrass with a handful of addons installed is 4% of my CPU.

    I believe that's for when the game is running but you minimize it, so it should be less of a problem unless you happen to feel the need to watch porn mid game

       The game doesn't close properly or crashes, and stays in the background only visible in the task manager.

    pretty well optimized, streamed a bit of dark souls and there was hardly a dip in performance (which is awesome given the optimization of the game itself i was expecting a big FPS impact)

    I think they are doing all of this to make Steam OS ready for prime time. But they need to polish everything up a lot more before they go full head on with the steam consoles

    So what's the required minimum upload speed for this? It doesn't work for me or any of my friends; stream starts at perfect speed but then freezes forever for everyone. Even at lowest settings.

    Ha, I could have used this the other day when a friend wanted to watch me play something.

    I do have a question for anyone who has used it. Does this broadcast only the game's sound, or does is broadcast everything?

    It records everything, except your Mic, which you have to set on.

    I wonder if I can use this at work? maybe my work mates that all have steam accounts can jump in when i'm coding something or trying a new feature, since the broadcasting thing has almost no delay and there is private streaming.

    So practically you don't want to even talk at risk of getting banned? Also wouldn't this ban some stuff like The Witcher for having tits in it?
    So how exactly is steam gonna regulate it when I'll be streaming to friends only?

    JTV had that when they started getting popular, actually. I don't know why they removed it.

    Someone bought this for me when I jokingly said I would stream it, I backed out because I didn't want to setup a stream but now steam makes it so easy I might just do it.

    Especially with the whole "When you're playing a game and someone starts watching, you automatically start broadcasting" part. .5 Mbit upload speeds and streaming would only result in huge pings. Hopefully that's changed when it goes out of the SCB.
    Except it doesnt automatically start streaming, by default you have to accept them to watch your stream.

    seems to be alright so far, i streamed some USFIV and it ran a liiiitle bit below 60, which is probably due to the fact that my opponent was across the world.

    i don't think it's going to replace hitbox and twitch tho, because there's a lot of under the hood stuff that i don't think steam's going to offer.

    Sometimes it just comes out, too. I tripped up the stairs earlier at school today and I may or may not have exclaimed "SHIT" near a substitute teacher.
