hmm, I think the songs should be mp3`s so that steam users could listen to it whenever, just get the songs for whatever game in that game`s folder. ex: ep1 songs will be in a subfoulder in the ep1 media folder

just a thought

i don't think it should be something like iTunes or whatnot, i think they should just add the music along with the videos. I think it wouild be cool if they put the main title music from the valve games in the media section.

I want a better Steam MP3 player that we can use ingame. One that works properly where ever my MP3's are located.

Possible, but not likely, is my guess.

I would love it personally, since I feel that steam handles my products as if I own them, while iTunes prefers to conveniently "forget" what I have bought from them once one download has been completed. If steam developed a service where I could download my music, music videos, and movies whenever I wanted to I would become a big customer over-night.

Last time I tried iTunes (admittedly a good while ago) I got one, count it; 1, download of the album i bought. Once that album got wiped in one of many unfortunate events it was gone for ever and ever. I could have backed it up, but one of the strong points of steam is how it in combination with a decent internet connection makes physical data storage obsolete.

The chief reason why I don't collect music and movies is simply that I don't want a lot of junk in my appartment. I know some people like to have a whole wall full of jewel-cases, but I ain't one of those people. I want my music and movies represented by little pretty filenames in my little pretty file-explorer.

As of now there is no service in the world that offers music/movie-downloads with the same perks as we get from steam when it comes to games. Maybe it is not possible to make it happen, but I sure wish they would try. Unfortunately there are a lot of big companies all pulling in their very own direction when it comes to digital distribution, so I doubt we will se any good alternatives in the near future.

i get what you mean. that's what i tought about itunes, once you bought something, you have to back it up. it doesn't keep track of your purchases. personnally, i hate being single tracks.

PS you should watch "WAL-MART: The High Cost of Low Price", a great movie about Walmart's dark side of cheap labor, lack of employee benefits, and envirmental issues.

In any case, it's most likely more than possible to integrate an mp3 player into Steam and allow you access to it in-game, much like Friends is integrated.

From wikipedia

Soon after death (15–120 minutes depending on various factors), the body begins to cool (algor mortis), becomes pallid (pallor mortis), and internal sphincter muscles relax, leading to the release of urine, feces, and stomach contents if the body is moved.
