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 keyboard controls

    Enable video controls on VODs for play/pause, forward/backward, skip x2, x4 and thumbnail display on the time slider of the video like your typical youtube video.

  2. Customizable Past Broadcast Thumbnail

    I think a great feature would be to add a customizable thumbnail for VoDs, or have a set time for it to grab the screencap for the thumbnail. I like to have order, and organization with my channel, and the random thumbnails are kind of a bother. I'm sure other feel the same way.

    Even if it was "At 10:00 a screencap is grabbed and used as a thumbnail for VoD."

    Many streamers use an intro scene--myself included--to prep the start of their streams. Even if all the thumbnails were my "Start" scene screengrabbed that would be definitely great!

    Thanks…

  3. Ability to disable vods from playing automatically

    I suggest VODs should not automatically start playing when I open a channel that is offline. I will frequently join a channel several minutes before I expect them to go live, so that I catch them right away. Unfortunately, with the way VODs have recently been acting, my browser doesn't detect when a channel goes live, since I'm trapped watching a VOD. I have to refresh the page (without the VOD's url extention) in order to watch live feed.

  4. broadcast more than one VOD.

    VOD broadcast queue would be very useful.
    Creators can host a live viewing event and play their past streams right along with their viewers, this would be a great tool with providing content and helping build creators communities.

  5. Set VOD to download (automatically) after stream

    This option would allow an automatic if not semi-automatic download of your VOD after you're ended a livestream. I would imagine this would require to be toggled (probably off by default) but still is a neat feature that I just thought up today!
    Personally, this'd help me to not forget to download my VODs after my streams.

  6. VOD Title on download

    Would be rad when you download a VOD the title of the file automatically becomes the title of the stream or a timestamp.

    Rather than just being "source".

  7. Chat transcript

    It would be helpful to be able to download a chat transcript along with our VODs.
    Then we can search the transcript for useful information, or "hype" moments that we can correlate to the VOD for clipping / review.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  12. 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…

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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Embed for VOD

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

  18. 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.

  19. 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".

  20. 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.
