  1. Thinking emote? :thinking:

    In order to be able to express ourselves to the fullest of all the potentials, I think we need the :thinking: emote. This is a vital part of the chat experience! Set :thinking: free! <3

    • Ability to Change Thumbnails

      Currently Beam will pick a thumbnail from a moment towards the beginning of the VOD. Sometimes that could misrepresent what a majority of the stream was because not everyone reads the title. VOD titles are sort of hard to read in general.

      It would be nice if we could upload our own thumbnail or the system could generate several thumbnails from different points in the stream similar to Youtube.

        • Purge option on popup when clicking a name

          Also, once I load the report option, I can no longer manage the chat unless I close that dialogue box.

          • Android Links to a stream load website and not app

            So, I cannot choose which I need to be the default.

            • VMix Compatibility and Integration

              vmix is a production level application that has soo many features. I use it for our unique interactive, for awesome overlays, and other features as well. Right now it has options to stream to various destinations, but NOT Beam. Instead, I have to use the custom RTMP target, which has a minimum delay of 5 seconds. While this is still better than other platforms, it's not FTL.

              Would you be able to reach out to them and partner to incorporate Tachyon technology into their targets so that we could select our ingest points from within their app?

              • Video player compatibility with Facebook

                It would be great you can add video player integration with Facebook, the people would see the streams directly into Facebook, like twitch.

                • Allow Users to favourite games

                  Similar to Twitch's functionality to follow a game. favourited games could show up on top of the Game List, regardless of viewer count.

                  • schedule

                    Scheduled stream reminders Request from new streamer, to be able to schedule streams so that followers can get an email reminder a set time before the stream. Most streamers will let their Twitter followers know half an hour to an hour before stream, but this does not cover all of the followers. To be able to send stream reminders via email would be a much more effective way to bring the crowds, and automated based on scheduled events would make it easier on streamers.

                    • Contact page / error reporting

                      Lately too many people are posting on the forums asking for help in a way they really should open a ticket. The reason why they post on the forums is the contact page is not even listed on the main site and you have to scroll all the way down to see it! I suggest it be moved to the top of the screen of the main page. I am aware it's on the dashboard but people are too lazy to notice things and just need another way for people to know that beam.pro/contact is a thing and the forums…

                      • Would like to

                        Don't know if just iPad or what not but can chat be horizontal and not vertical when you have the iPad on a stand/horizontal position? Sorry if this question makes no sense, but would appreciate feed back <3 :)

                        • Clocks below the video?

                          I've seen quite a few people already that display their time in their stream, so that viewers know what time it is there.

                          But I think, maybe, based on a timezone setting somewhere and a flag to either show or hide it, we should be able to display a little clock somewhere so that it's a standardized design that would keep the videos a bit cleaner.

                          Also VODs should save the "initial" timestamp so that they can show what time it was in the VOD at point X.

                          • Longer stream titles

                            I would love to see the ability to have longer stream titles. The titles seem so limited compared to other streaming sites.

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

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

                                • Setting up a stream. 2.0

                                  Add a tab or page to the setup sequence of a new streamer so they can easily find available bots (and places like restreram) and their features easilly when setting up thier stream.

                                  currently the stream setup sequece is fairly simple and only gets a user up and running, and fails to assist them in getting all the necessary background helper things running that make a streamer successful
                                  overlays, bots, facecam, yes some of these things are done in OBS, but not everything is.

                                  Let's give new streamers all the help we can give them! (if they want it)

                                  • Search for more than a channel.

                                    The ability to search on a more global level, like Stream titles and game titles. Right now when you search on the homepage it is only by the channel (user) name. The ability to have it filter the game and stream title would be nice.

                                      • Can't Copy OAuth Client details

                                        As of recent, after registering an OAuth client/consumer there is no way to copy the client_id and secret.

                                        Originally you could just highlight each and copy but due to box sizing this was intuitive, but now the input elements are disabled making that even more difficulty to do.

                                        I suggest adding 'copy-to-clip' functionality

                                        • Add supporter badge

                                          If a viewer is watching longer than 5 concurrent hours actively, they should automatically be assigned a supporter 'badge' so the broadcaster can know who is new to the stream and who's a long time viewer when the chat is flying by.
