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!

Help us make Mixer better for everyone.

  1. control tutorial for new people

    I know this seems weird, but I've had tons of people come to YouPlay and ask how they control the game.

    For people who have never used interactive before, I think there should be some sort of highlighted overlay over the controls telling them to press the buttons to interact. It would disappear once clicked over, and never show again.

    For mobile, the interactive button should be highlighted (maybe even flashing/pulsing) until it is activated at least once.

  3. Add a "friends only" option for hosting

    Along with the custom onHost text, we should have an option to only display a message if the hoster is someone you follow. That way people can't spam hosts to get attention in chat.

  4. active player count

    I'd like the active player count (as seen on front page streams) to be on the channel as well, next to the viewer count.

  5. Add force-approval for OAuth

    Make it so that other sites can force re-approval of Beam login, so users can switch login types

  6. User specific stream overlay.

    Beam really has some cool interactive features so far. I was curious if there was a way to add a layer over the actual stream player (would need to also work full screen) that would allow the channel to display information that is user specific. Lets say the user does something like !coins in the chat and instead of replying in the channel or through whisper, you could have it pop up on stream for only them to see.

    I am not sure exactly how this would work because the broadcaster would need to be able to create/edit the content…

  7. Implement OPTIONS method on all API endpoints

    Whilst I was working on a project involving REST APIs, I came across this little article: http://zacstewart.com/2012/04/14/http-options-method.html

    talking about the OPTIONS method for REST APIs. This method, documented in RFC 2616 section 9.2, "lets the client discover what it's allowed to do to a resource."

    While this may not be terribly useful to everyone, it looked interesting and since it's a part of the spec, I figured it might be a quick little something to add to make the API even better.

  8. Beginning a Non-Command Message with a Forward Slash ( / )

    Many people use /<something> as an "expression", similar to an emote. (/shrug, /cry, /tableflip, etc.)

    Currently, Beam's frontend restricts messages that begin with a forward slash to legitimate commands, disallowing users from using these phrases. It would be fantastic if this could be changed.

  9. Tachyon Source Alignment Snapping

    OBS Studio has a toggle for "Source Alignment Snapping". Tachyon does not.

    Please add the edge snap menu back.

  10. Emote only chat mode

    Have a streamer chat toggle for emote only mode.

    Beam would need many more emotes added before this can be a thing.

    Also have toggles to apply or ignore this setting for Pro users, subs, mods, or whatever.

    This is useful on twitch to control 'chat riots', cancerous chats, bullying, etc.

    its also fun. :D

  11. Separate control thread from rest of page

    When interactive controls are spammed, the entire page slows down as chrome maxes a thread. We need controls to be on a separate thread so spamming doesn't lock up the tab.

  14. Weekly digest emails

    We'd like to see a week-by-week update email, so we can keep track of what's going on, if we don't make it to the streams.

  17. Add an emote category to the feedback app

    A global emote suggestion category for this feedback app would be great for people who wish to suggest new global emotes.

  20. temporary flash player override

    I'd like to be able to right click the html5 player and force flash player.

    Flash is actually faster on RTMP streams, and seems to suffer less corruption when packets are dropped.
