Your system information

  • Steam client version (build number or date): 1.0.0.54-3 and 1.0.0.54-5 (both runtime and native have this issue)
  • Distribution (e.g. Ubuntu): Arch
  • Opted into Steam client beta?: [Yes/No] No
  • Have you checked for system updates?: [Yes/No] Yes

Please describe your issue in as much detail as possible:

I told a friend to watch me play factorio but said it reported my system to not support broadcasting. Steam > Settings > Broadcasting confirmed this, but with no explanation on how it can support it. Back when I used steam on Antergos it DID work, however.

Steps for reproducing this issue:

  1. Ask someone to watch your game
  2. Done

Hello @martmists, as far as I'm aware, this is currently unimplemented with Steam for linux, marking as a feature request.

Hey @kisak-valve, is there any progress on this feature?
This FAQ makes this look like a planned feature, more than like a feature request: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=6730-TOAK-6497#19

Would like to know about it too. I miss this feature, and using OBS as a replacement is really not the same in terms of performance.

It's been quite a while since this feature was requested (or 'promised'), I'd appreciate any update on this if that's possible.

Streaming is almost ridiculously easy from linux than it is from, say, Windows. How is this not implemented? If the client were open source then I'd PR support in... >.>

/me grumbles about closed source things

Really though, if help is needed I likely have the free time to do so sporadically.

I've been waiting for this for a long time. It would be great to have, especially now that we have the shiny new Steam Play (Proton) and more attention on Linux gaming.

I second this, I would enjoy being able to stream games for my friends and not having to go through the trouble of using some other streaming service/OBS
