Xbox Streaming At The Most. (Ideas For Overlays, Brb Screens, And More)
I am here to compile a list of all things they could do to make xbox stream ultimately incredible! Right now xbox streaming is kinda lacking alot of stuff since its built into xbox. You are stuck to just the game, webcam, and a kinda bad brb screen. These are some ideas i had for everything in detail.
1. Overlays, Someone already made a post for overlays. But I wanted to include some ideas for them to be able to add it easier. Similar to the offline screen setting. They could add an overlay setting. Adding a png file to appear OVER the stream for anyone watching it. So it wouldnt make anything lag on xbox. It could also be used for PC streamers who can't use overlays cause it lags or something. It could work similar to partner streamers new subscribers animation, but it would be a still image over the stream.
2. Follower Alerts, Host Alerts, ETC. Another thing the overlay post had earlier was something about follower alerts of the overlay. I feel like they could even do it to where you get an xbox notification when someone hosts you or follows you. Similar to the achievements on xbox. Or similar to the overlay idea I had above. Add an option to add an png alert picture over the stream when someone follows or hosts.
3. Background Music. I really dont know how they could add this but it would be nice. Have an option to stream music from the xbox while streaming to get that little background music going on while streaming games. I like to listen to music when im playing chill games and would like my viewers to be able to hear it as well. I dont know if they could add this, but maybe possibly make the stream pick up spotify sounds or pandora on the xbox. Or even possibly a flash drive with music on it.
4. BRB screens. So right now all we have is that brb screen that is kinda bland.... everyone has seen it. What would be nice is the option to upload a custom image instead of that boring one. So you can have a different one from every xbox streamer out there. Could have an option to add it to the channel similar to the alert and overlay ideas i had... and when you press that pause broadcast button it would show that brb screen.
These are some ideas i had. Thanks for reading and I hope they get added :)
Yes to everything this would be amazing it would be awesome. Please please make this happen. Especially the music. Would love to have my music going while grinding the upcoming release of BDO.
