I enabled broadcasting because it was an annoying option getting in my way on the in-game Steam menu, although once I enabled it I realised I did not know how to disable it. Am I being stupid or is it difficult to disable?

  • Have you tried exiting the game and loading it up again? – Fezodge Oct 26 '15 at 17:17

In the client, go in the Settings panel, Broadcast's tab.

Here's the support page for broadcasting on steam :

The first time a friend requests to watch your game you'll be presented with the broadcast privacy settings. To make a change at any time, access the Steam Client's Settings panel and select the Broadcast tab to view your privacy settings.

Available settings:

Broadcast is disabled
Friends can request to watch my games (default)
Friends can watch my games
Anyone can watch my games (public broadcast, can be found in the game hub)

  • How do I access the settings panel? Sorry I really suck at this stuff. – Dark Afterburn Oct 26 '15 at 17:23
  • @DarkAfterburn See the picture in the answer. – Phasma Felis Oct 26 '15 at 19:52

However, what isn't mentioned, is that when you restart you PC (and steam restarts) the broadcasting is enabled.

There doesn't seem any way to PERMANENTLY disable broadcasting.
