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. Mergeable VODs

    Not sure if it's doable but for the streamer to be able to merge VODs into one big VOD.

    The example I see is if the streaming software crashes, the game breaks the stream, or the OS breaks the stream, the streamer ends up with small chunks of VODs from the same day instead of their normal length VODs. I'd imagine that's annoying for the viewers who go back the next day to watch what happened or some people in their community want to make gifs or audio clips or the streamer wants to edit the VOD for YouTube. If…

  2. YouTube Exports

    We need Exports for YouTube rather then having to Download our Streams then Upload them! 8+Hour Streams @ 720 take alot of Data and Im already 900GB out of my TB my IP gives me I cant Download then Export, It also takes a ton of time!

    We are reviewing the possibility of direct YouTube uploads, although it’s unlikely we will make significant progress on this in the near-term.

    Right now our VOD focus is on launching clips and other features to showcase more live content. In the mean time, you can still download VODs directly from the Manage Channel>VOD page and edit+upload freely.

  3. Beam bot

    Use BeamBot to mark a highlight on the VOD. Use a command like !mark to put a timestamp on the VOD for easy editing and highlight making.

  4. Ability to spend Sparks to make VODs permanent

    I know that saving VODs takes up a lot if space, especially as the user ship on Beam grows. Here's my idea.

    Not partnered and want VODs to be available longer than 14 days? How about the ability to purchase either a slot or the ability to make the VOD permanent?

    Pricing could be something like 500 sparks to save a VOD permanently or 1500 per slot.

    Partners could get a discount as well (maybe 250 per save and 750 per slot, and they automatically get 3-5 slots already?)

  5. Ability to delete VODs while processing

    I was going to delete a VOD shortly after I streamed for various reasons, but when I went to the https://beam.pro/me/channel/vods page, the most recent VOD was "still processing" and the Watch/Download/Delete buttons were all disabled.

    While the Watch/Download buttons being disabled makes sense while processing the VOD, it would be nice to be able to delete a VOD without needing to wait for it to finish processing. It would even save you guys some CPU cycles!

  6. Ability to make highlights from VOD's

    add the ability to make short clip highlights from the stream that stay permanently in your "past broadcasts" section. This is similar to the Video Manager on Twitch, so that we as casters can cherry pick the best moments from our stream.

    Hi everyone! Apologies for the delay in updating this item. We have begun work on clips from live streams and hope to launch this item in a future update.

    Once creating clips from live-streams is done, we will revisit this item specifically. :)

  7. Recent VoDs accessible from the front page

    If you just missed a stream, it's difficult to reach the vod of that stream from the front page. A potential solution would be to include a tab on the main index page (similar to the New Streamers tab) for vods from streams that have ended in the last 24-48 hours. Even if it's restricted to channels you follow, this would make it easier to catch up on missed streams, and wouldn't necessitate doing a search on the main page (or the network tab of the account screen) for a given channel just to access their vods.
