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. Remember where I stopped watching!!!

    Many other video services remember where you left off. I like to watch Smite via broadcasts (the live times don’t match with my work/family schedule). It would be nice if I didn’t have to try and remember that what match/time stamp I left off at. I find myself trying to remember things like, “I was watching the Match on the 31st and was 02:39 on the time stamp where I left off.” And the when I watch again I have to manually try and find where I left off.

    Many other major streaming services (YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Video, **** even…

  2. Customizable Past Broadcast Thumbnail

    I think a great feature would be to add a customizable thumbnail for VoDs, or have a set time for it to grab the screencap for the thumbnail. I like to have order, and organization with my channel, and the random thumbnails are kind of a bother. I'm sure other feel the same way.

    Even if it was "At 10:00 a screencap is grabbed and used as a thumbnail for VoD."

    Many streamers use an intro scene--myself included--to prep the start of their streams. Even if all the thumbnails were my "Start" scene screengrabbed that would be definitely great!

    Thanks…

  3. Analytics for VOD

    Would it be possible to make Analytics accessible on VOD IE:

    Watch Time
    Average Watch Time
    Country of Origin

    Basically taking your live analytics for live viewership and applying it to VOD. I receive a huge amount of viewers after my stream ends due to time zones, the time of day I stream, the content my audience likes and more.

    These views should also count toward your overall numbers. Is it possible to integrate all of it into separate categories for online and offline viewership?

  4. Ability for viewers to create clips in live stream.

    So many times I have done something impressive or had a funny moment in the middle of my stream that I would love to keep. I tell myself I’ll just go back to the vod and find a way to clip it. Then I realize my vods are 6-7 hours long most times and just move on.

    It would be great to have an option to tell your audience to make a clip of the last 45 seconds (adjustable of course) so even they can go back and watch some of your best highlight moments.

    As sort of an addition…

  5. Chat transcript

    It would be helpful to be able to download a chat transcript along with our VODs.
    Then we can search the transcript for useful information, or "hype" moments that we can correlate to the VOD for clipping / review.

  6. Stream Replay Chat Auto-Scroll

    The chat on past streams should automatically scroll to imitate how it looked during the live broadcast.

  7. Upload Our Own PreRecorded/Edited Content

    Upload Our Own PreRecorded/Edited Content For Example Uploading Highlights of gameplay session, dedicated post produce shows, Pre Recorded Podcast Then allow us to Create Playlist Or Show Subpages for accounts that will have multiple style of broadcasting ie A user could have Battlefront Channel, A Forza Channel but all under one user account as playlist. Plus if I wanna do a cooking show, that too. Mixer and Interactive nature can be applied to all Content Creators. Mixer should be a content platform for all types of video content as a Gamer if I have desire to produce non live streamed…

  8. Clips

    Can the clip window open without having the stream in the background. It makes it difficult to watch the clip when it has the stream being played twice.

  9. Searchable VODs

    Mixer – Search VODs Implementation

    It would be great if viewers could use the “Search Game” function to find prior VODs of the game as well as streamers currently streaming the game. With lesser known titles, it would be beneficial to find content for a particular title, when there are no streamers online streaming the game. Currently, if there’s no one streaming a said game, then the search results are empty.

    Enter VODs into a searchable database for games. Full implementation would include having the section of a stream as “tagged” for playing a particular game. For example, if said…

  11. YouTube Exports

    We need Exports for YouTube rather then having to Download our Streams then Upload them! 8+Hour Streams @ 720 take alot of Data and Im already 900GB out of my TB my IP gives me I cant Download then Export, It also takes a ton of time!

    We are reviewing the possibility of direct YouTube uploads, although it’s unlikely we will make significant progress on this in the near-term.

    Right now our VOD focus is on launching clips and other features to showcase more live content. In the mean time, you can still download VODs directly from the Manage Channel>VOD page and edit+upload freely.

  12. Trailers for Channels Featuring Vods

    Similar to the YouTube trailer when you first load into a channel. Channel owners can upload a vod or video of their own making showcasing their channel or introducing themselves.

  13. vod keyboard controls

    Enable video controls on VODs for play/pause, forward/backward, skip x2, x4 and thumbnail display on the time slider of the video like your typical youtube video.

  14. Watch archived streams

    You should allow us to watch other people's past streams and, more importantly, be able to fast forward through them. Currently, I can only watch old streams from the Xbox but I can't fast forward so it's pointless.

  15. Ability to disable vods from playing automatically

    I suggest VODs should not automatically start playing when I open a channel that is offline. I will frequently join a channel several minutes before I expect them to go live, so that I catch them right away. Unfortunately, with the way VODs have recently been acting, my browser doesn't detect when a channel goes live, since I'm trapped watching a VOD. I have to refresh the page (without the VOD's url extention) in order to watch live feed.

  16. 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.

  17. Download Button for Mobile

    I propose that there be a download button on VODs for mobile. There are people just like me who can't afford to get a laptop or computer and must make videos through a phone. Over the past week from posting this, there seemed to be a download button, but just today, I have found that the button was removed. I contacted support and they said it was never on mobile because the files for the downloads would be too big.

    I for one, find that hard to believe because I've been downloading my streams from my phone, which were from…

  18. Ability to make highlights from VOD's

    add the ability to make short clip highlights from the stream that stay permanently in your "past broadcasts" section. This is similar to the Video Manager on Twitch, so that we as casters can cherry pick the best moments from our stream.

    Hi everyone! Apologies for the delay in updating this item. We have begun work on clips from live streams and hope to launch this item in a future update.

    Once creating clips from live-streams is done, we will revisit this item specifically. :)

  19. Embed for VOD

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

  20. 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.
