  2. add an archive and record every previous stream

    Add an archive so if you want to record a stream and save it you can archive it so people can watch it later

  4. subscriber control

    Ability for subscribers to control the streamer's layout. I realize the resources this would take, so maybe a feature for the future?

    Sometimes streamers place their camera shot to cover strategic parts of the game (mini-map showing their location, etc). It would be very cool for subs to be able to move the camera shot and thus see the details. I just imagine it being a very cool perk for subscribers. I imagine there are probably a ton of other situations I'm not thinking of where this could apply too.

    Thanks for considering!

  5. Soundboard Should Work On Xbox

    Like many Beam streamers, I have an interactive soundboard button configuration for my channel. However, I primarily stream directly from my Xbox currently (which I know is in testing). I noticed when testing it out that if I attempt to click one of the soundboard buttons as a user, it plays through my PC when I'm acting as a viewer, but it does not seem to ever impact the Xbox stream at all.

    So as an Xbox streamer, I have no way of actively hearing or reacting to one of the best things Beam offers. I wish the soundboard clips…

  6. Spark Section

    I tried to search for this suggestion but I wasn't able to find something similar to my idea. At the top of the Streamers section you can currently sort by: All Streamers, Rising Stars, New Streamers, and Stream Teams. I feel it would be a great idea to add a section called Electric Streamers or something catchy and in that section, the streamers an be listed by how many sparks have been spent in their channel. This would allow people who are looking for more interactive streams can find the ones with the most action. Currently I haven't been noticing…

  7. Option to auto hide sound board/interactive controls

    Personally I don't always use the interactive controls and I find myself toggling it off the moment I open up a channel with it on. I like the resolution of the stream to be a bit larger personally and the interactive board tends to take up quite a bit of space.

    I'm not saying remove it but in our account settings maybe give an option to auto toggle it off when opening a channel.

  8. Channel specific currency for Interactive events

    A customizable currency unique to each channel.

    Example: Let's say I have an interactive game that has its own economy. I want to be able to freely control balancing that economy around a currency I control. Being able to grant and remove funds based on game events, subscriber status, etc without worrying about Sparks influencing my economy.

    An argument can be made that developer could simply implement their currency on the game side; personally I don't think that doesn't lend itself to a good user experience. Users would have to use a chatbot to query their inventory state, making the…

  9. Embed different states in the same interactive board at once

    I think it would be a cool idea to be able to embed multiple states of an interactive board at once, this would let people who have their streams embedded on their website give viewers there the ability to have the best possible interactive experience and control.

  10. Confirmation for High Cost Interactive Buttons

    Can we get an opt-in style confirmation for when we're spending more than say, 1,000 sparks? There was a time about a month ago that I was browsing someone's stream when they had interactive on, and I clicked back on to the main window to get the focus, and it just so happened to be on the board, so I erroneously spent 5K sparks...

  11. Better Cooldown System For Mobile if Possible?

    Would love to not accidentally visually spend all my sparks and not know when I could or couldn't activate the button.

  12. Charges for giveaways

    So I just found the command for the built in giveaway system. What would be cool is if they stream could have the viewers use Sparks to bid on the giveaway and also maybe limit the giveaway entries to only people of a certain charge.

    Reason I would like the charges is to many time people would go in and create a bot or dummy account ( multiple accounts) to get more chances of winning the prize. Having the charge limit would help keep it far for all people in the chat and for folks that have been watch for…

  13. Interactive Drawing!

    Hey Beam family! Beam streamer, Glitchy on my stream team (Team Torture) found a new way for viewers to interact with the stream! Right now we're calling it "Beam Board". It's basically a whiteboard that let's you draw on the video stream in real time. If you want to see it in action, here's his most recent VOD: https://beam.pro/glitchy?vod=570236 and included is also a screenshot of what it looks like.

    To achieve this all he basically did was a CLR browser within OBS for those who are curious.

    Not only were we laughing the whole time, but we were helping…

  14. Added Controller Support for Interactive

    http://dl.razerzone.com/master-guides/Nostromo/NostromoOMG-ENG.pdf

    This is what I use and it works as a soundboard, but the buttons as far as I know are not recognized by beam's devlab.

    OFC, I'd love for the ps4 and xboxone to be recognized down the line :D

  15. Viewers can enable/disable interactive effects

    I'd like to see options available to the viewer to enable/disable the effects that happen on stream from interactive controls.

    Example:
    I'm working on developing a visual equivalent of the soundboards. Trigger GIFs, spawn particles, flash the screen etc. However, I'm worried those with epilepsy or similar would be unable to watch the stream when these effects are going off. It would be great if they could disable these effects from appearing on their stream.

    If there is a way I could do this within my own interactive development, I'd love to know how to go about it!

    We’re constantly looking to support other languages on our platform.

    You’re more than welcome to try and create one yourself in the meantime.

  17. interactive "VIEW/EDIT" json dialog

    Ability to edit raw json in the interactive design page. The interactive editor is super laggy, even with only 1 item created and placing it .. its just very sluggish. Would be nice to click view json and have it display an editable dialog vs read-only dialog.

  18. Support different keyboard layouts

    Basically this is about button mapping.

    Imagine a stream had buttons mapped to Q, A and Z.
    For the english keyboard layout, that would be a straigth row on the left side of the keyboard to press.

    On the German layout, Y and Z switch places, so that'd be Q and A being together and Z in the middle of the top line.

    French people would have A Q and W where Q A and Y are in the English layout.

    You can see where this is going.

    I think, if possible, the control editor should map tactiles to a…

  19. Interactive labels / tags

    I think it would be nice if we could label interactive streams not only with the game that's played there but also with what kind of interaction the user can expect.

    Either if it's interaction with soundboards, a moderated hybrid-like stream, where users can interact while the streamer also interacts with the game (like in Minecraft streams) or something like fully automated streams (like Youplay) where the users alone have control over what happens.

  20. WWE Interactive

    So this was an idea I thought I'd pitch, where fans can book matches for WWE 2K players. The prompt is simple, on screen, buttons for the in-game roster will appear. The streamer picks the match type and the number of participants. the viewers then choose who they want to see fight from a list of the over 130+ in game roster members or, if the streamers chooses, a custom list of up to 100 custom characters. Or both, depending on the streamer's preference or the viewers preference. once the timer is up, the top picks are revealed to the…
