Valve Is Working On A Video Recording Feature For Steam Deck & PC Client

Valve is currently working on a new feature for Steam Deck and the Steam desktop PC client that will allow video recording.

According to SteamDB creator and data miner Pavel Djundik, Valve is working on a video recording feature for Steam Deck and the Steam desktop PC client. He mentioned that the feature will support background recording and will include timeline markers in supported games for various events. Steam users will be able to share captured clips via the Steam community, just like screenshots.

Going by the data mined assets shared by Djundik, it appears that the upcoming video clip recording feature for Steam Deck and the Steam desktop PC client will also support direct sharing to Reddit, Discord, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, Tiktok, Whatsapp, and Facebook.

The ability to capture and share gameplay videos is one of the most wanted features on the Steam Deck. Both Steam Deck and Steam PC client users have been using various third-party apps for this purpose, but it looks like that will no longer be needed. There is no information on when the Steam OS and PC client updates will be rolled out, though it’s likely to happen sometime soon.

The original Steam Deck, launched in February 2022, featured a custom AMD APU called Aerith, named after the Final Fantasy VII character. This APU is based on AMD’s Zen 2 and RDNA 2 architectures. The CPU has four cores and eight threads, while the GPU has eight compute units, delivering a performance of about 1.6 TFLOPS. Both the CPU and GPU operate at variable frequencies, with the CPU ranging from 2.4 to 3.5 GHz and the GPU from 1.0 to 1.6 GHz, depending on processor demands. Two new models were released on November 16, 2023, with 512 GB and 1 TB of internal storage, replacing the previous top-tier LCD model. The original 64 GB and 512 GB units are discontinued, with the 256 GB LCD version now serving as the base model. The new models feature a larger 7.4-inch OLED 90 Hz display, support for Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3, a battery with approximately 25% more capacity, and improved cooling.
