I'm honestly not surprised. The videos section never caught on because who wanted to use Steam for that? We already had online streaming available on multiple platforms by that point anyway.
It was best for game-related videos; such as the Papers, Please Short Film (Which I highly recommend despite it being like 10 minutes) but nothing beyond that.

I think this is the first of many features we'll see purged from Steam this year.

Less is more, and especially in this case.

I think they should spend those freed up resources on creating a proper streaming and video platform.

With all the bull that's been going on with youtube lately (BitWit for example) and twitch turning into a softcore camshow many people would surely like to have a new platform with a trusted company standing behind it.


They do have some game streaming already, but if they would put more resources into the service itself and focus on proper marketing this could turn into a real good alternative to above mentioned platforms, at least for gaming and tech related stuff.

Valve is exactly the same hands off as any of them, the problems you mention would happen just as much if not more if Valve was to invest in this.


They are as lazy as they could be, they don't have to worry about copyright nonsense that come with a popular video platform, they don't have to moderate and monetize streams on the client now because they don't run 3rd party ads, you really think Valve would go down this route?

This is a great strategy from steam seems that it has less users and won't be able to compete with huge video sharing sites.
