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. VOD Splitting

    VoD Splitting

    Many streamers make longer streams and change games inbetween. If you don't restart the stream inbetween games you'll have one long VoD at the end with the last Stream title & game as its description.
    A handy addition for the VoD feature would be the possibility to split up the VoDs at given points to split it up between games.

  3. Stream start date on VOD instead of "X days ago"

    In the Past Broadcasts section, the VODs are labeled with "X days ago". It would be nice if there was a hover over that tells you the actual date.

  4. Marker added to VOD automatically when game title changes

    When a streamer changes the game title, a marker should automatically be added to the VOD.

    - Skimming through your VOD and finding that specific moment is simplified if you're a streamer that changes games frequently

    - Beam could add a feature that exports just a specific game; say you pick 'Only Doom footage', then only the Doom part of the stream will be exported to YouTube or downloaded

  5. Make it so we can cut down videos within mixer

    Hey, any chance you can make it so we can edit our videos before downloading them. I use my phone to edit and sometimes I dont have enough space to download the whole video stright to my phone. Plus it makes it so much easier when I can do this.

  6. Ability to spend Sparks to make VODs permanent

    I know that saving VODs takes up a lot if space, especially as the user ship on Beam grows. Here's my idea.

    Not partnered and want VODs to be available longer than 14 days? How about the ability to purchase either a slot or the ability to make the VOD permanent?

    Pricing could be something like 500 sparks to save a VOD permanently or 1500 per slot.

    Partners could get a discount as well (maybe 250 per save and 750 per slot, and they automatically get 3-5 slots already?)

  7. Mergeable VODs

    Not sure if it's doable but for the streamer to be able to merge VODs into one big VOD.

    The example I see is if the streaming software crashes, the game breaks the stream, or the OS breaks the stream, the streamer ends up with small chunks of VODs from the same day instead of their normal length VODs. I'd imagine that's annoying for the viewers who go back the next day to watch what happened or some people in their community want to make gifs or audio clips or the streamer wants to edit the VOD for YouTube. If…

  8. Ability to delete VODs while processing

    I was going to delete a VOD shortly after I streamed for various reasons, but when I went to the https://beam.pro/me/channel/vods page, the most recent VOD was "still processing" and the Watch/Download/Delete buttons were all disabled.

    While the Watch/Download buttons being disabled makes sense while processing the VOD, it would be nice to be able to delete a VOD without needing to wait for it to finish processing. It would even save you guys some CPU cycles!

  9. Recent VoDs accessible from the front page

    If you just missed a stream, it's difficult to reach the vod of that stream from the front page. A potential solution would be to include a tab on the main index page (similar to the New Streamers tab) for vods from streams that have ended in the last 24-48 hours. Even if it's restricted to channels you follow, this would make it easier to catch up on missed streams, and wouldn't necessitate doing a search on the main page (or the network tab of the account screen) for a given channel just to access their vods.

  11. Download Segments of a Past Stream

    Long streams create large file sizes. The ability to download only segments of a past stream would be amazing. For example downloading in blocks of 10min. So a 1hour stream could be downloaded in blocks of 10mins.
    Or simply the ability to select time lines that we won't to download. This is like an extension of the Clips functionality.

  12. Game clip download

    Make it possible to download VOD from a streamer. Presently can only view VOD. Even if the video can be uploaded to YouTube, then downloaded. It would also promote streamers gaming experience, and shared to all , that wish to download. (Fastbeamer) Mixer.

  13. finding offline streamers

    seems that finding those you're following when they are not streeming is very hidden on webpage.. why don't they pop up like they do on phone app when clicking the "Following" link?

  17. List games played under VoD

    When checking my VoDs, title shows only the last game played and maybe the thumbnail is showing a different game as I played perhaps 2-3 games during a 6 hour stream. Perhaps it could be a good idea just to show a little list on which specific games were played during that stream.

    Thanks Admin team for the great work!

  19. Vod Chat not showing up on a lot of vods with people who have low chatter amount

    Vod Chat not showing up on a lot of vods with people who have low chatter amount. Some people's VODS just don't have chat popping up at all. Usually a streamer who has less chatter has no VOD chat. Ocassionally a very active chat has VOD chat that doesn't really pop up. I'm not sure if linking vods would assist in fixing this, because most vods last 14 days.

  20. Highlight Reel showcasing your favorite plays.

    Basically a section on your Mixer profile where you pick your favorite moments from your past streams and showcase them for all potential and current followers to see. It would be a great way for new viewers to test the waters and see the kind of content you provide!
