Steam Broadcasting is not currently supported on this operating system.
I'm using Windows 7, pretty much the OS everyone in the world is using. Except for the ten people using Linux and the five people using Windows 8. Whenever I go to Settings and the Broadcast tab, it gives me that specific line: Steam Broadcasting is not currently supported on this operating system. Nothing else shows up.

So, what's the deal? Specifically, I have Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit.

Steam Broadcasting is currently supported through the Steam Client on Windows 7 and Windows 8. Support for Linux, OSX and Windows Vista will supported in the future.

Windows 7 is supported. Maybe it's a Steam Beta Client bug, so try restarting your client, or maybe Windows 7 Home is not supported.

I've tried restarting the client, reverting back to non-beta and upgrading to beta again, etc. etc.. I assume it's a quirk or a bug or something, so I'm not particularly worried about it or anything. I just feel it needs to be said or brought to someone's attention that'll make note of it. :P

Funny enough, it works out of the box on Win10 and Ubuntu.
