  1. RSS Feed for the Beam blog.

    Would like to reference the Beam blog using an RSS feed.

    This feed can be referenced on many things including blogs and Discord. That way members can keep up with the latest blogs and Beam news.

    So far this is done through people retweeting Beam's posts, but it can still be missed easily.

    • Remember volume

      Whenever I switch from stream to stream or even just reload a stream, the volume goes back to default. It should remember the previous setting to avoid going from low to high everytime.

      • Make gif and video recording nicer.

        I'm a person who likes to make gifs and video clips of streamers. Some times it goes well enough other times not so much. The other times is when the compression from the Beam Legacy Flash player coupled with an iffy bitrate and too much detail in the scene makes everything blocky and muddy. I had the thought of loading up the VoD link in Chrome, since you guys love Chrome so much, not log in so it loads the better player, then do my fullscreen recording with OBS. But I managed to find some problems that wold ruin the…

        • Web Interface is unreasonable heavy on limited hardware

          The web Interface is unreasonable demanding, due to heavy use of javascript and such, or so I suspect. I cannot claim to be an expert.
          Personally I'm unable to use the interface and am left with the option of watching through a local player, as I fear spontaneous combustion otherwise, which is of course not a very interactive experience.
          In other words, there are demanding 3d games that are less heavy on my laptop.
          Now my hardware is admittedly rather limited, but still, this is extreme, and I would suggest that you make it a priority to reduce the impact…

          • Double Check on Deleting Old Streams

            Sometimes when you are going through your old VODs you might accidentally clicked the delete button and unfortunately there is no "are you sure you want to delete that" option. I could so be a life saver.

            • Filter/search streams by console

              The ability to search for streams by console. Or at least an icon that says if the streamer is playing on PC, Xbox or PS4.

              • Useing phone data

                I would like to be able to hook up my phone to my Xbox one and use it's data to stream. My internet speed is very slow and I usually have about a thirty second delay from me and chat. Useing my data would solve this problem since it's faster and my data is unlimited also.

                Also this is just a thing I'd like to see. Streaming from our phones. So we could also stream on that platform as well.

                • Direcionamento de transmissão.

                  Vocês poderiam direcionar as transmissões para seus países de origem ou pelo menos colocar um filtro por idioma ou pais, assim seria muito mais fácil de de achar transmissões de certo idioma ou pais, por que hoje vejo uma certa dificuldade neste aspecto aqui no site, com um direcionamento ou pesquisa deste tipo seria bem mais acessível e fácil para quem fornece o vídeo e pra quem quer assistir algo de seu próprio idioma sem ter que ficar procurando muito tempo pelo site.

                  • Beam Stories

                    I think it would be a great idea if Beam has its own social area for channels! Where the streamer can post statuses onto their wall and other Beam Users can react and comment back!

                    Then on the homepage maybe add like a bar what updates to people you follow with like a green circle to notify you that the channel you are following has posted an update.

                      Can we get a !so (Shout Out) command within the platform (non-3rd party)?

                      That way someone on xbox (for example) can type "!so @(username)" to have that other Beam profile information pop up in chat. We can expand and support other streamers that way.

                      • Beam Desktop App

                        So Twitch released a desktop app that works like discord but has the ability to import your friends list from different community's along with there own obvious firends list , it allows communities and streamers to make there own channels and watch there channel and other channels with there viewers right from inside the desktop app. It promotes community .. I know it sounds like just bring this to Beam but seriously its great but doesn't work so well on Twitch as Twitch is not so community driven as Beam, but to have a desktop app where Communities and friends…

                        • VOD Automatically Play

                          A good improvement would be to allow the streamer to set up a playlist of their own VODs to automatically play on their channel when they're not live.

                          It could work almost like an auto-host and be an option to choose instead of auto-host. It would allow streamers another way to keep users engaged on their channels who would otherwise just close the browser if they missed streams.

                          I think allowing an option like this could improve and enhance the livestreaming experience and allow it to expand to something more than just Live entertainment. If streamers wanted to - with…

                          • icon for xbox chatters and mobile chatters

                            Add a small icon or colored dot in the bottom corner of the avatar to show that person is chatting from one the mobile apps. The idea being is they're chatting from the mobile app and the delay is longer then the other chatters and broadcaster can expect a longer delay until the person responds. Could maybe do something for the people using the xbox app.

                            • notification

                              To begin with, I like the new notifications, but I would like to see it update across multiple tabs. I usually have multiple tabs open for different streams. Then when I get a notification and I read it in one tab, I then need to read it again on all other tabs I have open to mark it as read.

                              • subscriber control

                                Ability for subscribers to control the streamer's layout. I realize the resources this would take, so maybe a feature for the future?

                                Sometimes streamers place their camera shot to cover strategic parts of the game (mini-map showing their location, etc). It would be very cool for subs to be able to move the camera shot and thus see the details. I just imagine it being a very cool perk for subscribers. I imagine there are probably a ton of other situations I'm not thinking of where this could apply too.

                                Thanks for considering!

                                  • Viewing Resolution

                                    I rather wish I had the option to choose my preferred viewing resolution in my settings. I have particularly slow internet, and often, I'll try to load a stream, but the stream's bitrate will be too high at the "source" bitrate for me to load the stream enough to even see the settings gear, to lower the stream's resolution, so that I may watch. Thus, without being able to lower a stream's resolution, often, I cannot watch, at all, and must choose a different stream with lower initial "source" bitrate, which will give me the opportunity to choose "480" instead…

                                    • Xbox Kinect Zooming Needed

                                      One thing I noticed when streaming directly from the Xbox was that the Kinect camera controls were fairly limited. It was either on or off. It would be nice if, much like the Twitch app on Xbox, we could enable an "Auto zoom" mode that lets the camera zoom in to just the person streaming.
                                      This would make it so that just I am on camera, not my entire house and everything that the Kinect can see within range. Having an auto-zoom feature on the Kinect in the Twitch app made it a lot easier to limit the scope of…

                                        When watching multiple people streaming together, they often use a voice chat between them. That's great if you're only watching one of the streams, so you can hear the others, but starts to fall apart when you're watching more than one of them. It would be awesome if there could be multiple audio streams that can be individually muted (or have volumes set differently). It could even be extended to the streamer's voice, game sounds, and background music, giving you an option to mute just the music to avoid any copyright problems, while leaving the rest of the stream audio…

                                          Just have a idea for ppl with a lot of sparks like over 100k or something as imo there not a lot to do with sparks other then soundboards. Why not either let them buy a month of beam pro or a one month sub to who ever they choose just a idea anyways.
