Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have now purchased 2 games on Steam with soundtracks included. Tiny and Big: Grandpa's Left Overs and Quantum Conundrum. I am disappointed to find that the soundtracks are not accessibly from the Steam client, but instead by navigating through the game directories.

I thought the "Media" section of Steam would be where the soundtracks would be locatable. I appear to be wrong, and currently to me this section seems to yield no purpose.

What exactly is this section for?

This question may prove useful. The Steam Media area seems to do with videos and certain soundtracks. Dunno on the client, but I don't think the client and website are largely different.

Yep, it's for game trailers, movies and the like. For example the 'Meet the Engineer' and such from TF2 end up in here if you download the movie rather than stream it. –  DavidYell Jul 27 '12 at 8:26

It is for downloading media off of the Steam website.

Under any video on the steam website, there is a button labelled "Download".

Download button below a video on the Steam website

Clicking that button, will download the video (like a game) into your Steam client, but into that "Media" section.
