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. Searchable VODs

    Mixer – Search VODs Implementation

    It would be great if viewers could use the “Search Game” function to find prior VODs of the game as well as streamers currently streaming the game. With lesser known titles, it would be beneficial to find content for a particular title, when there are no streamers online streaming the game. Currently, if there’s no one streaming a said game, then the search results are empty.

    Enter VODs into a searchable database for games. Full implementation would include having the section of a stream as “tagged” for playing a particular game. For example, if said…

  2. Viewers to download VODs from streamers

    If an esports organization is playing on MicrosoftNYC, there should be a way for a viewer to download a VOD to create a montage or so.

  3. Vidme Export

  5. Upload Our Own PreRecorded/Edited Content

    Upload Our Own PreRecorded/Edited Content For Example Uploading Highlights of gameplay session, dedicated post produce shows, Pre Recorded Podcast Then allow us to Create Playlist Or Show Subpages for accounts that will have multiple style of broadcasting ie A user could have Battlefront Channel, A Forza Channel but all under one user account as playlist. Plus if I wanna do a cooking show, that too. Mixer and Interactive nature can be applied to all Content Creators. Mixer should be a content platform for all types of video content as a Gamer if I have desire to produce non live streamed…

  6. Can you make a feature where you can stream your vodcast? Twitch has this feature that lets you stream your vodcast by itself

    Can you make a feature where you can stream your vodcast? Twitch has this feature that lets you stream your vodcast by itself. its a really good feature to have so your follower can catch up with the stream if they missed it

  7. Save VOD to OneDrive

    Have the ability to automatically save VOD's to your OneDrive (or other cloud services).

    You can do this on the Xbox One already with the Game DVR. Figure this would be a neat addition since Mixer is part of the Microsoft ecosystem.

  8. Remove the VOD section from the profile if no VODs are present.

    Remove the VOD section from the profile if no VODs are present.

    It seems pointless to have an empty column on the left side of the page if there is no content to display.
    It takes up valuable real-estate.

  9. Make it so we can cut down videos within mixer

    Hey, any chance you can make it so we can edit our videos before downloading them. I use my phone to edit and sometimes I dont have enough space to download the whole video stright to my phone. Plus it makes it so much easier when I can do this.

  10. Embed for VOD

    It will be great to have a proper embed for VOD. For now there is just an embed for stream/channel.

  11. CoStream VODs only shows one streamer

    After watching a stream that was costreaming, I wanted to double check to see if the VOD would have the other streamer. It didnt. Thought I head that the VOD would show whoever is in the stream.

  12. VOD tooltips during processing

    When a VOD is processing and a user clicks on Watch, Download, Delete, pop up a friendly bit of feedback to remind them why the buttons are not working. "This VOD is processing, please try back 24-48 hrs after broadcast".

  13. Stream start date on VOD instead of "X days ago"

    In the Past Broadcasts section, the VODs are labeled with "X days ago". It would be nice if there was a hover over that tells you the actual date.

  14. Let the streamer know VOD capturing is off on the VOD screen

    As a new user (and first time streamer ever), I went to the VOD screen out of curiosity. It says VODs will appear there after I'm done streaming. I went ahead and streamed for ~20 minutes and went back to the VODs page and it wasn't there. I waited a day and it still never showed up. After contacting support, they told me VOD capturing was off.

    This should either be on by default to match the VOD screen text, or you should change the VOD screen text to tell the user it's disabled at the moment but can be…

  15. Make gif and video recording nicer.

    I'm a person who likes to make gifs and video clips of streamers. Some times it goes well enough other times not so much. The other times is when the compression from the Beam Legacy Flash player coupled with an iffy bitrate and too much detail in the scene makes everything blocky and muddy. I had the thought of loading up the VoD link in Chrome, since you guys love Chrome so much, not log in so it loads the better player, then do my fullscreen recording with OBS. But I managed to find some problems that wold ruin the…

  16. Add stream start time to VOD in REST API

    It would be great if the VOD representation in the REST API could also record the time the stream actually started, right now the createdAt field contains the time the VOD was actually processed, which is always after a stream finishes, with a variable amount of time.

    For a few things I have in development this would make it a **** of a lot easier to do what I want to do ;)

  17. Cache vod for offline access

    Cache vod for offline access. I commute and would like the option to temporarily cache a vod for offline/limited network access during my commute (public transportation).

  18. VOD Sound Board Sounds

    We just launched a show tonight that depends heavily on audience participation through the Interactive Soundboard. We're kind of sad to see that the soundboard audio hasn't been baked into the VOD.

    If it's possible to change that, it'd be great!

  19. Marker added to VOD automatically when game title changes

    When a streamer changes the game title, a marker should automatically be added to the VOD.

    - Skimming through your VOD and finding that specific moment is simplified if you're a streamer that changes games frequently

    - Beam could add a feature that exports just a specific game; say you pick 'Only Doom footage', then only the Doom part of the stream will be exported to YouTube or downloaded

  20. VOD Splitting

    VoD Splitting

    Many streamers make longer streams and change games inbetween. If you don't restart the stream inbetween games you'll have one long VoD at the end with the last Stream title & game as its description.
    A handy addition for the VoD feature would be the possibility to split up the VoDs at given points to split it up between games.
