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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. URL parameter of time point (start at)

    It would be great to add URL parameter of time point (start at) so we can share vod url pointing at specific moment in the video.
    It could be awesome to have "end at" parameter also.

  6. Embed for VOD

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

  7. VOD quality should be selectable for viewers

    It should be possible for viewers to select the quality of VODs. I can't watch VODs, because it is constantly buffering.

  8. 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.

  9. play pause

    Using space key for play/pause the Vod.
    It work if first click to play/pause button with mouse and if it focused on that button. But it will be nice if it works when on the players.

  10. 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".

  11. 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.

  12. Double Check on Deleting Old Streams

    Sometimes when you are going through your old VODs you might accidentally clicked the delete button and unfortunately there is no "are you sure you want to delete that" option. I could so be a life saver.

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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 ;)

  16. 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).

  17. 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!

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
