Help us make Mixer better for everyone.

Separate Mic/Music Volume Controls

Problem: "Your mic is too quiet." or "Can you turn down the music?"

Solution: viewers independently control a streamer's mic or music volumes

    OBS or a 3rd party program would have to support this in order to do this. currently they do not. OBS only understands desktop auido and microphone. desktop auido being everything the computer is outputting.

    but yeah, when the day comes that OBS can detect audio sources per-program, then it can be done.

    The only I see this working is if stereo audio is in use. Then a streamer could put voice on left and music on right. So the "mixer" would essentially be a pan control. Tricky but not impossible. It's just a matter of if the web player can pan.

    I wish there was a way to implement this. Nothing against the genre, but one can only listen to so much Monstercat. It would be nice to mute the music in a stream and play my own music, but still hear the streamer. It's especially difficult when watching multiple streamers, because the music clashes. I wish it was as simple as splitting the left and right channels and doing voice and music as mono.

    RTMP (FLV for sure) doesn't support multiple audio streams.

    Might be possible with FTL but not with RTMP.

    this would require the Broadcast program to send x amount of discreet audio channels first.

    I love this idea.

    You could expand it to work with multiple audio *and* video streams, so you could, say, do a 4POV stream easily, with less delay than streaming to someone's custom server and then to Beam. Or you could add sliders for music, game, and mic volumes! :)
