Mixer Feedback & Ideas

We love hearing from our customers. To help us build the best version of Mixer ever, we have partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to create this site to hear your ideas and suggestions. The teams working on Mixer regularly review the ideas and incorporate them into product planning discussions. While we can’t guarantee any specific features or timelines, we will read all suggestions, and we may also merge and rename suggestions for clarity.

Thanks for helping us to improve Mixer!

  1. URL links in Custom Controls should open in new window/tab

    A current work around is to have a chat bot post the url link in the chat but then the chat gets spammed. To mitigate that, url buttons can have timer and/or spend sparks but that's a bandaid to bandaid and way too complex just to go to someone’s twitter or discord. Bots whispering the url to the user is a slightly better work around but still not ideal. This is especially bad on the mobile app where you don't see the chat while using MixPlay so when you keep pressing a button to a donation link nothing happens and…

  2. Mixer is trash, you can't chrome cast, you can't change the quality of the VODs, which makes the buffering take so long. Twitch is better

  3. We need a better UI for the Developer Lab Build page

    First off, I love the developer lab. I've messed with some interactive streams, and they were great! But it takes forever to set them up. The UI on the build page could be tweaked a little bit to help us save time while setting things up.

    Here are some suggestions that would improve my workflow:
    1. The ability copy controls and scenes
    -I know they need to have unique names, but being able to copy them then renaming them would save a LOT of time
    2. Let us resize the buttons in the X and Y axis at the same…

  4. Configure screen resolution

    That the resolution of the screen can be lowered since I use mobile data and I spend it very fast

  5. Add an option to make a beam user a [BOT]

    As like discord, we need an option to make a user a bot, so that streamers and users watching the stream know that its a bot and running a program and not a real user.

    Planned  ·  Matt Salsamendi responded

    Happy to say that after much discussion we’re planning on making this a thing! We’d love to give third party developers the tools they need to shape the experience on the platform directly and we’re confident this is a good step in that direction.

  6. IFTTT integration?

    I wonder if anyone involved in Beam development makes use of IFTTT.com? It would be awesome to connect their internet-of-things system with Beam events like following, hosting, etc.

  7. Private FTL Server

    One of the features that I've been itching for is the ability to host an FTL ingest server on a private network. Currently, I run my own streaming equipment for a private steam setup (friends and family), and the latency introduced by the current standard protocols (RTMP, HLS, etc.) is a nuisance. Would it be possible to see a standalone (or plugin, similar to nginx-rtmp-module) stream server? I've asked this a few times, and received conflicting answers on it. The FTL protocol is extremely exciting for someone like myself, but without a server-side offering, it's effectively useless to me.

  8. Make /api/v1/users/<user> endpoint work with string username too

    I've been working with the Beam API recently and part of what I've been doing includes looking up data about users. The API is pretty great in regards to most things, but the /api/v1/users/<user> endpoint is not one of those in regards to the fact you *have* to use the user ID to look up a user.

    Obviously, you can search the API for the user, and then get the ID from that, but it would be really nice if you could make a request to https://beam.pro/api/v1/users/Matt instead of https://beam.pro/api/v1/users/137.

    This shouldn't be too difficult to implement, but would…

  9. Feature complete the chat moderation API

    1. The [`PurgeMessage`](https://dev.mixer.com/reference/chat/index.html#chat__events__PurgeMessage) event should *always* include the `moderator` information, even when it is chained to a ban or timeout.
    A [`UserUpdate`](https://dev.mixer.com/reference/chat/index.html#chat__events__UserUpdate) event should always include information about what user updated the roles (including, and especially, if they're staff), and the [`UserTimeout`](https://dev.mixer.com/reference/chat/index.html#chat__events__UserTimeout) event should be broadcast to everyone (it specifies the user who is timed out), and also include a `moderator` field.
    3. It should be possible again to *mute* a user, by timing them out without purging their messages (sometimes you don't want them to disappear so people can understand why moderator action…

  11. Blizzard Stream Ablility

    As Blizzard as started to add many games to their service Battle.net, I believe it would be a beneficial idea to have a Mixer Stream option incorporated into the launch system.
    As Blizzard begins to adds more games (Destiny 2, Black Ops 4) to their list of playable games through Battle.net, having the option to stream on Mixer through Battle.net would be awesome. Would give people the ability to stream an Blizzard game along with any Activision game.

  12. More versatile Search Parameters

    Search parameters refined. State, province, region, country, hamlet, borough, town etc. Example: I live on the Western Hemisphere, but my stream schedule doesn't attract Western Hemisphere viewers, but would attract EU viewers. I want to find streamers that live in Scotland, so I should be able to search for Scotland and have all the streamers from Scotland appear in my search results. thus allowing me to refine my search by perusing the results looking for specific interests. In other words make the search parameters more versatile.

  14. Battle.net Tab

    As Battle.net begins to add more and more Activision game to the Battl.net launcher it's safe to say that Streaming should also be added. As of this moment Battle.net does allow Streaming but only too Facebook.
    Would be nice to have a Stream option for Battle.net to Stream not only Blizzard Games easier but also to Stream newly added Activision games as well.

  16. Search By Schedule - Input Schedule

    Streamers would be able to post their schedule in their settings.

    These schedules would then be searchable by users by looking for streams that are normally on during those hours. This will make looking for streamers that fit people's lives much easier.

    For Example: I want to work out in the morning Monday-Wednesday around 6 AM and hang out in a stream during that workout for an hour every day. This always took a bit of grunt work due to having to search through streams and maybe get lucky finding one that would stream EVERY Monday - Wednesday.
    This filter…

  17. Fix video on top and left

    On the left side of the video has a small gap, due to the responsive model (Responsive Web Design), however it is damaging the layout of the entire site - in my opinion.
    I believe that responsive(Responsive Web Design) should be done only from left to right and top to bottom, leaving the top and the left side fixed on layout.

  19. oauth redirect_uri

    In app creation there is no field to add redirect_uri, and the 'default' always fail.
