New application-type IDs for Film, TV Series, Video, Plugin and Music were discovered in Steam binaries today following a recent Steam Beta update.

The new app-types, spotted by database sponge SteamDB, possibly indicates that Valve may be planning to offer users with a range of deeper multimedia services as part of its drive to make Steam more accessible in the living room.

Of course these new types should be taken as rumour for now, and could very well be improvements on what Valve already offers. Currently users of Steam are able to sort out their own music thanks to the Steam Music Beta, plus various developers are already selling their video game soundtracks on Steam. Ahead of the Steam Music rollout, references to music streaming service Spotify were found in the Steam client a year ago.

As with music, Valve also offers - on a rudimentary level - film distribution through Steam in the form of Indie Game The Movie or Free-to-Play being examples. Non-game applications, such as accounting solution You Need A Budget, can be purchased and used through the digital platform, too. Either way, it seems like Valve's idea of Steam and its multi-purpose use is expanding, and we'll definitely be hearing more soon enough.
