Steam Client Beta Update:

Steam Controller

  • Improved responsiveness and reliability of changing bindings or settings during gameplay
  • Fixed several instances of legacy local bindings not loading
  • Fixed changing bindings or settings during gameplay in Guest mode
  • Tagged legacy local bindings in configuration browser; these have now been migrated and can be deleted if migration was successful
  • Disabled Export dialog when in Guest mode

In-Home Streaming

  • Added NVIDIA NVFBC encoder as a separate option under Advanced Host Settings in Big Picture mode
  • Added logic to retry any previously-failed encoding methods whenever a new game is launched
  • Added logic to fall back to software encoding when hardware encoding is being unreasonably slow
  • Temporarily reversed a previous change to the bitrate of games running below 60 FPS, due to an adverse impact on network latency
