  4. Add AMD VCE Support to OBS-FTL

    It'll be nice if OBS-FTL had support for AMD VCE, so streams on AMD cards will be less laggy

  5. Downvote Notification

    Having reviewed the way your forum works (I'm aware you use NodeBB), I'm a little miffed to why you have upvote on and not downvote notifications.

    Could we please have the down vote notifications enabled, as I've noticed posts and topics getting down voted and can't see form those posts why it would be down voted in the first instance other than a user who has a grudge.

    If it can't be enabled for specific reasons, then I would ask that Upvote is treated this way as well.

  6. Cache vod for offline access

    Cache vod for offline access. I commute and would like the option to temporarily cache a vod for offline/limited network access during my commute (public transportation).

  7. Android app

    Push notifications for the mobile app would be very helpful rather than having it go through email all the time.

  9. award

    Create a Beam Awards platform. The community can vote on many categories (best video, best music, best gameplay, etc.) and then there's a live stream to announce winners. Winners get a "trophy" on their profile. Awards every year.

    (PS: Stole this idea from Magnetron. Sorry not sorry)

  10. Don't End Beam Stream When Switching Xbox Games

    One thing I tested when streaming on Beam directly from the Xbox is that if I switched games, the stream immediately ended. If I wanted to continue streaming on the new game I switched to, I had to restart the stream.

    It would be awesome if when switching games, it could detect that and either A) at least pause the stream and resume when the new game is fully launched, or B) Just keep the stream going and change the relevant details on the stream.

    This way, there'd be no interruption in the stream when game swapping, and would make…

  11. Adding Poker and games of Chance/Strategy to the Allowed Games list

    Will there ever be a chance for streamers to stream Poker online? I know, you're going to tell me that it's gambling and that the TOS doesn't support this. I do completely understand this. But it isn't like slots or roulette. It's a game based on strategy, logic, observation, and general knowledge of your situation. I actually lost my job in 2009 and, while looking for a new one, only made my bills by online and casino Poker. There is so much depth to the game and people LOVE to watch others that are very good at it due to…

  12. Chromebook Resolutions

    I wanted to note that the attached picture is how a normal Beam livestream looks on chromebooks set to their default resolution (1366x768) when the streamer has a soundboard set. It's ok, but I feel like it could be better! I thought I'd bring it up since this will be an increasingly common usecase for streaming as more public schools start rolling out Chromebook-based programs for all their students. (Also, shoutout to Prims! <3)

  13. Pop out video player

    Add an option to pop out the video player into a seperate browser window (the ones that do not display bookmarks and tab bar) that only shows the player and nothing else of the website.

    For users with single-monitor setups this helps a great deal when doing something else while watching a stream. You can reserve a small portion of the screen for the beam player or you can have the popped-out player stay atop all other windows and play a game yourself while watching a stream.
    Twich has this feature when clicking the settings icon and clicking "popout player".

  14. Moderators get custom emotes

    Hi! I am sure you are aware that beam has a subscription service where people can pay money and get some perks. Well what i am suggestion is that the moderators can use the custom emotes of any streamer they are a moderrator for. I know people may get mad at this but i think it would be a nice perk for saying "Thanks for moderatoring my streams, here are a few emotes". Thank you.

  15. VOD Sound Board Sounds

    We just launched a show tonight that depends heavily on audience participation through the Interactive Soundboard. We're kind of sad to see that the soundboard audio hasn't been baked into the VOD.

    If it's possible to change that, it'd be great!

  16. Multiple Audio Tracks

    This is a rather complex idea which would need the cooperation with the streaming program developers.
    Idea is to have a system where you can stream two audio tracks instead of only one, giving the possibility to the viewers to separately change the volume of game sound and streamer's voice.
    This would of coures increase the load, but since the video should be the biggest part of streaming in most cases it shouldn't be that big of an increase.

  18. Resub Notifications

    It's very hard to keep up with the people who resub if you do not have the bot you use up 24/7 - is there anyway to incorporate an easier way to keep up with who resubs? Like perhaps in the partnership tab where you look at all the people who have subbed to you.

    I know it can say people have been subbed for a month, but that doesn't mean they have resubbed. Maybe add the day they resubbed.

    Hey Zae,

    We recently rolled out our new “Notification” feature, this will give you a notification when someone re-subscribes. Click the bell icon in the top right of the page to see your notifications.

    This should help you to see when a re-subscription has occurred.

    Thanks

  19. A lot of ppl don't consider mobile games, as gaming. But it really is. Have you ever played minecraft pocket edition?

    Mobile gaming is a thing now a days. Just look at the store. We have minecraft pocket edition, modern combat 5, all the fnaf, etc etc. I would love to stream or watch streams from these games. It would be amazing to see a mobile streaming option. Like mobcrush or should has.

  20. Beam Chat in Minecraft

    Add the ability to see chat from beam within Minecraft as well as chat back when streaming! I mean come on it's a feature for twitch streamers and twitch is owned by amazon! Beam is owned by microsoft and so is minecraft! I feel this should be a thing without having to rely on someone to make a mod! With Beam being part of big windows 10 update in march I am surprised it's not yet been announced as an addon feature for people who stream to beam playing minecraft using the soon to be built in streamer!
