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. VOD Automatically Play

    A good improvement would be to allow the streamer to set up a playlist of their own VODs to automatically play on their channel when they're not live.

    It could work almost like an auto-host and be an option to choose instead of auto-host. It would allow streamers another way to keep users engaged on their channels who would otherwise just close the browser if they missed streams.

    I think allowing an option like this could improve and enhance the livestreaming experience and allow it to expand to something more than just Live entertainment. If streamers wanted to - with…

  3. multi-channel audio control

    When watching multiple people streaming together, they often use a voice chat between them. That's great if you're only watching one of the streams, so you can hear the others, but starts to fall apart when you're watching more than one of them. It would be awesome if there could be multiple audio streams that can be individually muted (or have volumes set differently). It could even be extended to the streamer's voice, game sounds, and background music, giving you an option to mute just the music to avoid any copyright problems, while leaving the rest of the stream audio…

  4. Password-protected Livestreams

    Create a system to allow a user to make their stream viewable only when a password is inputted by the viewer. This would allow a close friends only livestream.

  6. background transparent

    I just have one question
    Why do not you delete the streaming background as you can with Upload Studio on the xbox one?
    I think it appears in this option for the sea streaming more attractive for the streamer and for its visitors.

  7. It's about streaming.

    Hello. I am a person after starting delivery recently. There are some opinions that I can feed back here. It is easy to use this delivery site and is easy to rub it to other people. However, there are some problems. At first about game streaming. There is a place to put a title in game streaming, but cannot change it after it when I change it. For example, I play Stardew Valley. I play a different game to the trace. However, game streaming does not have the title of the game that there wants to be. Because the setting…

  9. Add AMD VCE Support to OBS-FTL

    It'll be nice if OBS-FTL had support for AMD VCE, so streams on AMD cards will be less laggy

  10. Don't End Beam Stream When Switching Xbox Games

    One thing I tested when streaming on Beam directly from the Xbox is that if I switched games, the stream immediately ended. If I wanted to continue streaming on the new game I switched to, I had to restart the stream.

    It would be awesome if when switching games, it could detect that and either A) at least pause the stream and resume when the new game is fully launched, or B) Just keep the stream going and change the relevant details on the stream.

    This way, there'd be no interruption in the stream when game swapping, and would make…

  12. Allow the use of xsplit game caster

    I think you should allow the use of Xsplit gamecaster instead of only allowing xsplit broadcaster.

  14. Catch up button

    Have a button under the stream that after X amount of second delay has been reached it would reload the stream and not the entire page in hopes that the person with the delay can catch up.

  15. Have the rating of Mature or M on the stream

    During a stream if you forget, there should some overlay or something on stream that tells the viewers if its mature or not. Yes when you come into the channel it says it at the bottom but would be nice to constantly have it somewhere on the stream

  16. talk show

    Hello. I recently joined Beam, after I was told about it. Being a Talk Show Streamer is a struggle. There isn't many websites that support it. It's been a constant join this website, website dies, I lose viewers each time I move, so on and so on.

    I appreciate that Beam allows it. It's given me a new place to do what I want to. I hope that it will be a permanent home. In that regard I wanted to suggest the idea of a Talk Show Category.

    I was told by Beam Staff to use the Web Show category.…

  18. Music "Game Being Played" Option

    I understand there is a Create option for what your stream is about, as that can be used to express a music stream. But I feel that if a person does not see actual art, on the stream preview, you automatically get looked over. I would like to suggest an option to place "Music" as a "Game Being Played". This makes it more specific to the stream. Even TES: Skyrim has both the original and Remastered as options for that.
