SteaMusic

Posted in Software

Currently only available via the Big Picture mode in Steam is the Steam Music feature, I got into the Beta recently so I thought I’d share some thoughts. As this looks to be the first element outside of the OS it could be an important element of the media center experience that Valve want your Steam Box to become. I for one enjoy game music, but often it’s nice to play something different, something your in the mood to listen to. Normally this involves having to juggle your game with media player or something similar. And having to Alt+Tab out to swap playlist or pick a different artist.

Happily I can say that the music player is rather straight forward to use, add a reference pointing at a folder containing your music and Steam will scan and import all items it finds. You can then access your the player by selecting play or bringing up the player in you Shift+Tab menu while in game. It’s not offering much new in the way of music players but then it’s no real shock. Additional thoughts:

  • Will they adapt the system to allow users to connect to online radio streams
  • The default folder for music already added is under the Steam folder structure, could this be a sign that Valve may start selling music online via the steam platform?
  • Connections to existing media centers to stream from already existing setups that users may have

I’m excited that Valves direction has a more focused direction, as I was typing this post Steam notified me that cross computer streaming is now available, more on that when I get chance to try it out.

  1. That’s actually pretty nice as you don’t have to alt+tab or run the game in windowed mode to mess with your music player. Does it take a long time to import the music into the player?

    Not that I recall, but I’ll run a test later to confirm for you.
