  1. 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!

            I would be fantastic to add a Sub Category to creative for animation! :)

            • 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…

              • multi-channel audio control

                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 A idea

                  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.

                  • 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.

                            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.

                              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…

                                    • 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.
