  1. Add a Fitness Gaming Channel

    I like to lift weights while I am gaming. I have a gaming fitness talk show where I play Overwatch and also talk about how to get in shape while gaming. Specifically, I do weight lifting and talk about the fundamentals of building muscle and burning fat.

    Would it be possible to add a new channel type "Fitness" where we can stream our workouts and optionally stream games while in there?

    • Display Viewers and Chat on the Same Page

      So, one of the things which is bothering me is the fact that I can't see both my viewers and my chat on the same page when I am looking at the Beam chat for information. I was able to do this on Hitbox. Can this be a feature in the UI? Thanks.

        Something like a light and dark themes or another example would be VIM Color schemes

          • notification

            When a notification from staff goes out (there was one about ingest issues just now with a link to post feedback), have the chat also go into the channel chat as well, since it can be tough to catch the notification.

            • Marry Jane

              One thing I didn't see was that I think or imo there should be something about weed and streams. especially with the press on it now. unless that is in work. This is in reference to the rules of conduct for Beam.

                • Interactive Buttons/Player

                  So I've noticed when someone has interactive buttons on their stream the player tends to get smaller, what I was thinking instead of shrinking the player just move the buttons down and extend the page a bit more, it would help with being able to see what's going on and make it more user friendly.

                  • Multi-Channel Single-Connection interface

                    I'd like to see multiple channels chat handled under a single connection. The gist being something along the lines of:

                    Authorization should take place with the websocket upgrade request resulting in the connection.

                    Joining a specific channel's chat
                    - If the channel id does not exist an error should be returned in the reply
                    - if a join method has already succeed on the connection for the channel id, an error should be returned in the reply
                    ```
                    // Client:
                    {
                    "type": "method",
                    "method": "join",
                    "arguments": _channel_id_,
                    "id": _method_id_
                    }

                    {
                    "type": "reply",
                    "error": null,
                    "data": {
                    "authenticated":…

                    • Buying Sparks

                      I feel there should be a way to buy sparks with real world money. I do not know how or if they would be implemented like a spark system on twitch. But I feel we should have more of a variety of how we would like to support beam. I am all for subbing and being pro but just adding another thing to show our love would be awesome to see!! Also we get sparks to use in interactive win win for both!

                      • Needs more Pokemon Go

                        Would be cool if Pokemon Go Teams and an interactive channel that plays it could be added similar to Agar.io and YouPlay

                        • control tutorial for new people

                          I know this seems weird, but I've had tons of people come to YouPlay and ask how they control the game.

                          For people who have never used interactive before, I think there should be some sort of highlighted overlay over the controls telling them to press the buttons to interact. It would disappear once clicked over, and never show again.

                          For mobile, the interactive button should be highlighted (maybe even flashing/pulsing) until it is activated at least once.

                              Along with the custom onHost text, we should have an option to only display a message if the hoster is someone you follow. That way people can't spam hosts to get attention in chat.

                              • active player count

                                I'd like the active player count (as seen on front page streams) to be on the channel as well, next to the viewer count.

                                  • User specific stream overlay.

                                    Beam really has some cool interactive features so far. I was curious if there was a way to add a layer over the actual stream player (would need to also work full screen) that would allow the channel to display information that is user specific. Lets say the user does something like !coins in the chat and instead of replying in the channel or through whisper, you could have it pop up on stream for only them to see.

                                    I am not sure exactly how this would work because the broadcaster would need to be able to create/edit the content…

                                    • Implement OPTIONS method on all API endpoints

                                      Whilst I was working on a project involving REST APIs, I came across this little article: http://zacstewart.com/2012/04/14/http-options-method.html

                                      talking about the OPTIONS method for REST APIs. This method, documented in RFC 2616 section 9.2, "lets the client discover what it's allowed to do to a resource."

                                      While this may not be terribly useful to everyone, it looked interesting and since it's a part of the spec, I figured it might be a quick little something to add to make the API even better.

                                      • Beginning a Non-Command Message with a Forward Slash ( / )

                                        Many people use /<something> as an "expression", similar to an emote. (/shrug, /cry, /tableflip, etc.)

                                        Currently, Beam's frontend restricts messages that begin with a forward slash to legitimate commands, disallowing users from using these phrases. It would be fantastic if this could be changed.

                                        • Tachyon Source Alignment Snapping

                                          OBS Studio has a toggle for "Source Alignment Snapping". Tachyon does not.

                                          Please add the edge snap menu back.
