Today, we have a few exciting announcements coming your way.

🎮 Medal’s Player is now integrated on Steam

We’ve worked with our friends at Steam on a number of updates that make Medal and Steam easier to use together. Steam users capture and share millions of Medal clips every month on popular games such as CS:GO, Rust and Rocket League. This update will make it easier for developers to share high-quality clips from players and updates, while driving sales of the game.

Medal Player on Steam

When you paste a Medal link in Steam, it’ll automatically embed a Steam-enabled clip in your Steam posts, communities and announcements.

“Get this on Steam” button on embedded clips and shared links

Anytime you include a steamappid in medal video links, whether embedded or through link sharing, or even in the Medal API, Medal will add a “Get this on Steam” button that will allow fans to buy the game featured on the clip through Steam, even if users re-share the clip. For more information, see the embedded player docs.

This is useful if:

Clips API

We’ve seen game developers use Medal for different purposes, whether it’s catching cheaters, collecting content around events, or seeing in real-time what’s happening in communities. The API will allow you to automate Medal to your own needs. For more information, see the API Docs.

We’re excited to see what you do with this. Please feel free to reach out with questions!

PS: If you’re into APIs, we’ve wrapped our API with Cloudflare Workers to create a public and private key management system and authorization layer around our private API. 1) We’d highly recommend it, and 2) If you’re into that kind of stuff, we are very much hiring.

We’re super excited to see what you create. Now get to postin’ ☜(゚ヮ゚☜)
