MixPlay and Costreaming
Since the new UI update came out in Beta there has been a BIG change to how you view costreams and MixPlay features. ITS BROKEN.
Currently if you are in a costream with someone else that has MixPlay features enabled, whoever holds the number 1 position (which is usually the person to initiates the costream) is the one whos buttons take priority for MixPlay in ALL streams inside the costream and the only way to have viewers see the other streamers buttons is to have viewers host the other streams, go to their own channel, and watch the host to interact.
This makes it hard for streamers with their own buttons to be viewed especially if their MixPlay buttons are one of the key points to their stream, brand, and community as they are no longer shown to new viewers when they hop in the costream chat.
As of today the only change to MixPlay has been the MixPlay Arean now resizes to fit the hight of your buttons to allow for larger video feeds. I sent in a ticket WITH a screenshot of the console with a LOT of errors to the support staff and they sent that to the engineers and I have yet to see any changes made. That was 2 months ago.
If this sounds like I am complaining... its cause I am. My MixPlay features are one of the bigger key points to my stream and during a costream ALL parties involved should have their MixPlay features available for ALL viewers and this error in the engineering department is taking away interactivity between viewers and streamers more than it is making it stronger.
We love MixPlay. We want it fixed.

Yeah, this is a big issue, tried donating to one streamer and all my embers went to the other host because they were primary.
This isn't a feature, it's a bug! report it
I often jump into co-streams either that I am a part of or that I am viewing and I have always been frustrated by this aspect that I can't press the streamers buttons I wanted to push etc.
