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. Allow chatting via Discord

    I would love the ability to not just view chat in Discord from my Mixer channel but also post chat messages too.

  2. add channel:host:self scope

    Hi, I'm working on a website for a broadcaster, it has a way to login with Beam OAuth, so people can do a bunch of things on the site, including HOST from the stream page, the issue is, as it is at the moment it requires the channel:update:self scope, which is not the best of scopes to use for a streamer's website, as this obviously gives the site access to update the logged in users channel settings, but as it stands right now this is the only way I can add a host button, would be nice to have a…

  3. 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.

  4. Public Bug Tracker

    Think it would be hugely beneficial if we had a public bug tracker using Jira or something similar where the community can report bugs and monitor whether their progress.

    Would help in ensuring bugs are tracked, try to prevent multiple people mentioning the same bug, and would also enable people to add comments on how to produce the harder bugs!

  5. Followers Endpoint Fixes

    The followers endpoint should be sortable and limitable like other endpoints within the api.

    Currently only the current page's results are sortable.

    Developers would love a URI to fetch for their latest follower.

  6. 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…

  7. Feature complete the chat moderation API


    1. The [PurgeMessage](https://dev.mixer.com/reference/chat/index.html#chateventsPurgeMessage) 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#chateventsUserUpdate) 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#chateventsUserTimeout) event should be broadcast to everyone (it specifies the user who is timed out), and also include a moderator field.

    2. It should be possible again to mute a user, by timing them out without purging their messages (sometimes you don't want…

  8. Data tracking for unique chatters and button interactions

    Some data tracking suggestions from someone who's a bit too obsessed with it, would be cool to know:

    -Number of unique chatters
    -Number of messages/ messages per viewer
    -Number of button interactions / per viewer

    Tracking for button presses would be especially useful! It'd be good to have a better idea which buttons to keep and which we can remove to save space.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. oauth redirect_uri

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

    SUGGESTION: Add redirect_uri field to app details at oauth2 details (key, secret)

  18. Broadcast API Object

    I have been developing some stream statistics to show on a sign-off scene as part of a regular stream. Currently, I have no easy, non-oauth method of getting the start/stop times of the current/previous broadcast. I mention oauth specifically because the browser plugin for OBS/XSplit does not support mouse/keyboard interactions and therefore cannot do oauth.

    There was some great support provided by Richard Fox from the Developer Ecosystem team but we were unable to come to a suitable solution for my use-case.

    I believe the easiest path forward would be to create a more robust Broadcast object in the API.…

  19. Remove cached images from Mixer when removed from streamer page

    It seems that the suggested course of action for adding images to our streamer bios is to use imgur. This seems to be because imgur uses a different URL for each image, even if it is the same image uploaded multiple times. This 'ensures' that the image is displayed 'correctly'.

    What this shows me is that Mixer caches each image that's uploaded, so if you end up modifying the image and reuploading it with the same file name, it detects that name already in existence and uses that cached version instead of the new one.

    I think caching an image…

  20. API | Teams Search Endpoint

    As there is a search endpoint for both users and channels endpoint. Can we get one for teams to?

    This wold be useful for developers to hook into and lookup teams and for Beam to also support this.

    It wold be nice to see it under /teams/search . This should not take long to impotent.
