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. Youtube Live Alert

    Much like how Twitch has a small alert show up on your youtube channel that you are live, I'd love for Beam to have an alert on Youtube when I'm live.

  2. Something to regonise new streamers

  3. link to xbox live account

    Like the title says, allow us to link our accounts to Console accounts like Xbox Live, or PlayStation Network so we can show our gamertag and activity feed on Beam from those console accounts.

  4. 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

  5. Public Bug Tracker

    Think it would be hugely beneficial if we had a public bug tracker using Jira or something similar where the community can report bugs and monitor whether their progress.

    Would help in ensuring bugs are tracked, try to prevent multiple people mentioning the same bug, and would also enable people to add comments on how to produce the harder bugs!

  7. Follower sorting.

    On the 'Followed Channels' and 'Your Followers' tabs, it appears that users are sorted by account creation date. While that isn't a bad way to do things, being able to sort by other criteria (specifically by when they followed you, on the 'Your Followers' tab) could be very helpful. Being able to review recent followers, and go to their pages to see if they stream, would be nice.

  8. FTL

    Add a toggle to filter shown streamers to only those using FTL. Reasoning: it's the highlighted feature of the site, and most interesting/compelling, yet a user won't know who's using FTL unless they check each streamer themselves

  9. RSS feed of when a streamer goes online

    A way to generate an RSS feed for a streamer that automatically makes a new post every time the streamer starts streaming.

    similar to this: https://github.com/lzeke0/TwitchRSS

  10. Followers Endpoint Fixes

    The followers endpoint should be sortable and limitable like other endpoints within the api.

    Currently only the current page's results are sortable.

    Developers would love a URI to fetch for their latest follower.

  11. 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…

  12. Sparks/XP for VOD

    it would be interesting and nice to have a, maybe reduced rate to gain XP and Sparks while watching a VOD.
    It rewards people for watching content that they may have missed and want to watch it at a later point in time

  13. "Browse by Rating" on the Homepage

    During a stream, there was a discussion on how he dislikes raiding other streamers that have a "Mature" or even a "Teen" rating (he prefers to keep all content to a level where his young kids could watch). That got me, as well as others during the stream, thinking that something that needs to be a thing is a "Browse by Rating" on the Homepage. This will make it far easier to check on other streamers that have content of an equal rating without having to spend time clicking on each stream individually to see what it's labeled as (as…

  14. Give staff members their own emotes

    Staff members should be able to use custom emotes without partner.

    For testing purposes obviously... Maybe also for fun/meme purposes.

  15. Host from Network Tab

    Be able to host people we follow right from the "Your Network" tab, as long as they’re online.

    Have a tab or page for following live broadcasters show up on mobile and the website it would help viewers find the broadcasters they follow easier that are live.

  18. Increase Maximum Streaming Bitrate

    Currently there seems to be a cap of 3500 Kbit/s when streaming with rtmp. I use OBS because of its hardware encoding capabilities and have an upload bandwidth of 10000 Kit/s.

    Since hardware encoders aren't as efficient as software encoders I have to use a higher bandwidth for comparable quality. Streaming 1080p in 60fps doesn't really look good with max 3500 Kbit/s.

    So I really would appreciate if I could use a higher bitrate when streaming.

  19. 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!

  20. Partnership without cash

    We at Youplay don't want to take money that would come in with a partnership or possible subs.

    All we'd want is the emotes.

    Would it be possible to either turn off the subscriptions or redirect the cash to somewhere else, like, to donate it or something?
