  1. Global Toggle - Hide Controls and Low Latency

    Ability to have global toggle for both of those.
    After recent major update Hide Controls is put into last spot i would check, horrible design idea. And when its checked there is no way to bring those controls back without restarting whole thing.
    I dont know what exactly was idea with Low Latency option, but it doesnt work for me, at all. Absolutely every steam with this option on is in state of perpetual loading. Turn it off and everything works just fine(most of the time).
    So, id like to see an option, in account options, to toggle those two…

    • New Follower Email

      I think it would be cool if we could get an email when someone new follows the channel.

      Also a weekly digest that shows how we performed that week in comparison to the previous week, i.e:

      You gained 5 followers and streamed for 24 hours compared to last week where you got 1 follower and streamed for 2 hours.

      • Hiding Controls Placement

        The placement of the hide controls button in my opinion isn't that great. It should be placed right underneath the stream video. Having it there would make it easier to click instead having to scroll down just to enable or disable the controls when you want to use a interactive button. Not everyone wants to watch the stream in that small resolution window.

                • Game list pulled from steam and/or other services

                  While currently beam only pulls their games that are listed on player.me there is a problem when it comes to games not being listed. Player.me's list in generated by the gaming community and not all gaming companies are gonna go to player.me to add their game to the list until player.me is really noticed by all companies! I suggest a few features to help add games?

                  1. Pull a list of games based on what people actually own on steam, origin, or uplay as long as they have their accounts linked. If this is a console game then Nintendo, Sony,…

                    • Unlisted Channels

                      With the FTL protocol, it would be great for people to use beam as an alternative for live commentary with a group, such as Let's Plays. Additionally, unlisted channels could provide people who want to have a stream only accessible to their friends without worrying about troll raids.

                      • Longer stream titles

                        I would love to see the ability to have longer stream titles. The titles seem so limited compared to other streaming sites.

                        • Setting up a stream. 2.0

                          Add a tab or page to the setup sequence of a new streamer so they can easily find available bots (and places like restreram) and their features easilly when setting up thier stream.

                          currently the stream setup sequece is fairly simple and only gets a user up and running, and fails to assist them in getting all the necessary background helper things running that make a streamer successful
                          overlays, bots, facecam, yes some of these things are done in OBS, but not everything is.

                          Let's give new streamers all the help we can give them! (if they want it)

                          • Add supporter badge

                            If a viewer is watching longer than 5 concurrent hours actively, they should automatically be assigned a supporter 'badge' so the broadcaster can know who is new to the stream and who's a long time viewer when the chat is flying by.

                            • Multiple descriptions for mobile/web

                              So loads of streamers use images in their descriptions but they don't work on mobile. For that reasons many streamers add a text version of their description underneath the image one. Wouldn't it be better to have 2 separate descriptions? 1 for mobile and 1 for web?

                              • Mark mature streams on the channel list

                                Basically you can't see weather a channel is for mature audiences or not when you're browsing the channel list unless the streamer plays something mature that shows up in the preview (which based on a setting maybe should be invisible) or the title says so.

                                My suggestion is: either with a symbol or a color, make it clear that the channel is mature.

                                  There is a growing number of us who play physical games on our streams, other streaming sites have already embraced this and there are far more games than just Dungeons & Dragons.

                                    Streamer Subscribable ban lists
                                    A eay for other casters to subscribe to a ban list of another channel, simmilar to "lists" on twitter.

                                    Example: someone comes into a channel and starts posting bad links, ****, or inappropriate comments. The streamer bans them.

                                    Streamer 2 subscribes to streamer 1's ban list, that person is now auto banned on their channel.

                                    • adding launcher support

                                      Adding launcher support: I had a friend mentioning it would be nice to add launcher support (curse, steam, etc.) so that when you log into a game via the launcher, it automatically updates your setgame command for your stream.
