Mixer Feedback & Ideas

We love hearing from our customers. To help us build the best version of Mixer ever, we have partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to create this site to hear your ideas and suggestions. The teams working on Mixer regularly review the ideas and incorporate them into product planning discussions. While we can’t guarantee any specific features or timelines, we will read all suggestions, and we may also merge and rename suggestions for clarity.

Thanks for helping us to improve Mixer!

  1. Weekly or monthly analytic emails

    It would be nice if we could get a weekly analytic email or even a monthly one.

    To see channel followers within that time, growth, etc. It would make it a lot easier than having to use the analytics page for general information between selecting dates and such.

  2. fire tv

    I sideloaded the Beam app on my Fire TV stick and it works GREAT *except* the remote doesn't work, so I have to use Wukong remote app on my phone. Probably not a big audience, but it would be great if the Fire remote worked, if it's a simple fix. Just enough to select a stream. Would also be good to be able to download direct from Amazon App store instead of sideloading.

  3. link to xbox live account

    Like the title says, allow us to link our accounts to Console accounts like Xbox Live, or PlayStation Network so we can show our gamertag and activity feed on Beam from those console accounts.

  4. Separate Mic/Music Volume Controls

    Problem: "Your mic is too quiet." or "Can you turn down the music?"

    Solution: viewers independently control a streamer's mic or music volumes

  5. New Follower Email

    I think it would be cool if we could get an email when someone new follows the channel.

    Also a weekly digest that shows how we performed that week in comparison to the previous week, i.e:

    You gained 5 followers and streamed for 24 hours compared to last week where you got 1 follower and streamed for 2 hours.

  6. Public Bug Tracker

    Think it would be hugely beneficial if we had a public bug tracker using Jira or something similar where the community can report bugs and monitor whether their progress.

    Would help in ensuring bugs are tracked, try to prevent multiple people mentioning the same bug, and would also enable people to add comments on how to produce the harder bugs!

  8. Change chat to target's, on Host

    When I host a channel it would be great to have a check box to change the chat on my channel to the host target's. then back to mine when unhost

  9. RSS feed of when a streamer goes online

    A way to generate an RSS feed for a streamer that automatically makes a new post every time the streamer starts streaming.

    similar to this: https://github.com/lzeke0/TwitchRSS

  10. Followers Endpoint Fixes

    The followers endpoint should be sortable and limitable like other endpoints within the api.

    Currently only the current page's results are sortable.

    Developers would love a URI to fetch for their latest follower.

  11. Mergeable VODs

    Not sure if it's doable but for the streamer to be able to merge VODs into one big VOD.

    The example I see is if the streaming software crashes, the game breaks the stream, or the OS breaks the stream, the streamer ends up with small chunks of VODs from the same day instead of their normal length VODs. I'd imagine that's annoying for the viewers who go back the next day to watch what happened or some people in their community want to make gifs or audio clips or the streamer wants to edit the VOD for YouTube. If…

  12. Give staff members their own emotes

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

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

  13. Host from Network Tab

    Be able to host people we follow right from the "Your Network" tab, as long as they’re online.

  15. Sparks/XP for VOD

    it would be interesting and nice to have a, maybe reduced rate to gain XP and Sparks while watching a VOD.
    It rewards people for watching content that they may have missed and want to watch it at a later point in time

  16. Increase Maximum Streaming Bitrate

    Currently there seems to be a cap of 3500 Kbit/s when streaming with rtmp. I use OBS because of its hardware encoding capabilities and have an upload bandwidth of 10000 Kit/s.

    Since hardware encoders aren't as efficient as software encoders I have to use a higher bandwidth for comparable quality. Streaming 1080p in 60fps doesn't really look good with max 3500 Kbit/s.

    So I really would appreciate if I could use a higher bitrate when streaming.

  17. Ability to delete VODs while processing

    I was going to delete a VOD shortly after I streamed for various reasons, but when I went to the https://beam.pro/me/channel/vods page, the most recent VOD was "still processing" and the Watch/Download/Delete buttons were all disabled.

    While the Watch/Download buttons being disabled makes sense while processing the VOD, it would be nice to be able to delete a VOD without needing to wait for it to finish processing. It would even save you guys some CPU cycles!

  18. Favourite Option

    I think a ''favourite option'' to pin our favourite streamers to the top of our followed streamers could work well.. I'd love to support and follow everyone but also be able to find my favourite streamers quickly.

  20. Gamifying for gamers

    You have XP for leveling up, how about some items?!

    To encourage watching streams, how about giving users/viewers a series of items to unlock and collect, items are reminiscent of favorites from the last 30+ years of gaming.

    It will work similar to Sparks but items will be distributed at random and not at a set time duration, the better the item, the more rare it is that it will drop.

    Every user will have a Backpack that will serve as the inventory for all the items.

    Users can trade items with each other or sell/buy them for Sparks, another…
