  1. Player auto vertically center 21:9 streams

    21:9 streams, when displayed on a 16:9 monitor, orient the actual stream to the bottom of the player div. The issue here is that 21:9 streams end up leaving nearly 2 inches of room between the top of the player div and the start of the stream.

    Twitch, as an example, vertically centers the stream so it has a more letterbox feel.

    • More Embeddable options

      As a 3rd party web developer, it would be nice to have the options to change the background and global text colours of the expendables, also including transparent for the background, as it's hard to make fancy websites work with the Beam blue background without it looking like garbage, as an example, I manually edited the frames... https://ss.mrvdog.com/298Og3uF5p.raw

      • Add a Go to Your Channel Icon on the main menu pls.

        There is no Go 2 your channel on the main menu and its annoying to go the name menu and then click on your name.
        It be handyer and easyer to add a simple Home button on the main menu of beam.

        • Xbox Logo and Mobile App Logo in Chat

          Hi!

          It would be cool if Xbox Viewers and Mobile App viewers had special symbols next to their name in chat. For example, Xbox Viewers have an Xbox logo beside their name and Mobile users have a cell phone beside their name so that streamers can better help them out or cater to their individual needs.

          • Password-protected Livestreams

            Create a system to allow a user to make their stream viewable only when a password is inputted by the viewer. This would allow a close friends only livestream.

            • free way to sub to a streamer

              twitch has this feature where if you have amazon prime, u can sub to a streamer for free as long as you had prime. i think beam should implement the same kind of feature by being partnered with someone like amazon so that some people that are broke like me can use that free sub on someone while they had an account with said beam's partnership company. im all for subbing to streamers but i want to be able to sub to someone without having to pay a monthly fee with beam when i can just have a yearly or…

              • Let the streamer know VOD capturing is off on the VOD screen

                As a new user (and first time streamer ever), I went to the VOD screen out of curiosity. It says VODs will appear there after I'm done streaming. I went ahead and streamed for ~20 minutes and went back to the VODs page and it wasn't there. I waited a day and it still never showed up. After contacting support, they told me VOD capturing was off.

                This should either be on by default to match the VOD screen text, or you should change the VOD screen text to tell the user it's disabled at the moment but can be…

                • Request: OG Role

                  I was just thinking about the possibility of having some sort of 'OG' role for those who have supported Beam from the beginning, so the community can recognise them as being people who helped make Beam a thing

                    Hi i had a question: when we start streaming and we post the link on our facebook page and it shows only the link and people are afraid to tap on link (for personal reasons). Can you guys do something about that? I would appreciate that. Thanks a lot.

                    • Add Note to "Following" Page

                      When you go to the "Following" page and click through the games, and no one you are following is streaming that game you simply get a "No channels found" message. In my opinion, this should be expanded to something like "No followed channels streaming {game}. [Click here] to see non-followed channels" or something of that sort.

                      • language of presentation of channel

                        Can we stream to a specific language audience ?

                        If so can we have the option to have multiple language channel presentations (the channel on the language we are presenting )

                        1 channel per language we want to stream to. Yes it takes more resources but it's personalized for the specific audience the streamer wants to stream to into their own language.

                            After being on here for some time, I have come to enjoy this application/website a lot. I have a few ideas to improve how things are.

                            1. I like the ideas of levels and sparks. However, I feel these can be put to better use. I feel that you could use the ranks or sparks to possibly get noticed, such as being able to use points to be shown on top of lists without new streamers being stuck on the bottom and never being seen, or have some kind of rank structure to help promote new channels or people with…

                                  • List Streamer Name in Pop-Out Chat Window

                                    I'll sometimes use the pop-out chat window feature to have it within another screen while listening to the audio and working and not watching the video.

                                    It would be great to have somewhere in the pop-out chat window have the streamers name somewhere (either maybe in the window title, or just persistently at the top?). If I have a lot of windows open, I sometimes get confused by which chat I'm talking in. =P

                                    • Checks & Balances for the streamer

                                      Allow the streamer to be able to check in, maybe once a month or even weekly, on their channel/stream. Allow the streamer to see how many reports they may get and for what, so that the streamer can use that as a barometer to make changes to how they operate their stream. Like a checks and balances.

                                        Will be great to add an option to turn off the streaming notification bar along with the ability to move it around the screen as sometimes it comes over subtitles. I never streamed with twitch on Xbox One as comes a banner on the screen "Now Broadcasting" and is very annoying. Hopefully the feature to switch off streaming banner will be implemented soon.
                                        Thanks

                                          I just have one question
                                          Why do not you delete the streaming background as you can with Upload Studio on the xbox one?
                                          I think it appears in this option for the sea streaming more attractive for the streamer and for its visitors.
