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. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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 ;)

  4. 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).

  5. 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!

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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?)

  12. 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!

  13. 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. :)

  14. 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.
