  1. Back button restoring your position on the Browse page

    When browsing streams on the Browse page, after clicking on a stream, if you decide to go back to the Browse page using the Back button, you're put back at the top of the page. I would like to see the Back button put you back at the location of the stream you were just watching.

  2. Kill stream remotely

    Grant us the ability to kill the stream remotely.

    If something goes wrong with your interactive stream but you are not next to the host computer and are unable to remote in, you might want to kill the stream and have it start hosting someone else so that viewers aren't wasting their time.

    [Last week, someone spammed a few keys, which stopped my script from taking any inputs; I then had to wait a few hours to get home in order to resolve it as my remote tools were not working.]

  3. Make the network tab look more like the stream browsing page.

    Currently the network doesn't tell us what game a given person is playing or their stream title. Attached is a sample card mockup, excuse the terrible art skills.

  4. Unicode Emoticons

    It would be fantastic to be able to use all unicode emoticons natively in chat, similarly to Discord, Slack, and many other chat services. When users (primarily on mobile) send Unicode emotes, they show in their Unicode form, not integrating with chat at all.

    An emote chooser for these would be great, as well, again similar to Slack's - organize emotes by Unicode grouping, with "custom emotes" (memes, partner, etc.) in their own categories. The current emote chooser is not extremely intuitive, and it's generally hard to find any emotes.

    Thanks!

  6. meta tags

    Adding new meta property tags added to the page header

    So what I noticed coming from Twitch is that when you post links via Facebook or Discord, it grabs certain meta tags within the header section and includes those as the description. It's likely using the tags listed below.

    <meta content='WarbladeX - Twitch' property='og:title'>
    <meta content='https://www.twitch.tv/warbladex'; property='og:url'>
    <meta content='Ready and playing some Battlefield 1 Closed Alpha!' property='og:description'>
    <meta content='https://static-cdn.jtvnw.net/jtv_user_pictures/warbladex-profile_image-1e696000d6bd5c71-300x300.jpeg'; property='og:image'>

    When posting a Beam profile link into Facebook or Discord, it puts very standard info about Beam and a generic image, but it would be great…

  7. Revise :3 emote?

    Perhaps the :3 emote could make a face rather than a whole cat? As it is now, it makes me avoid using it since it has pretty much no applications. D:

    Besides, I think the majority of folk use it for a face rather than an entire cat. >u<

  8. Fix the Hamster Emote

    I didn't know where else to put this but can you fix the hamster emote? It's been fuzzy forever and it didn't use to be.

    I mean the hamsters work so hard powering beam, at least they emote should look good again

  9. restream

    When using Restream.io to broadcast on multiple platforms, a bitrate higher than 3500 can't be used or it just doesn't work.

    I recommend adding guide or pop-up prompt that explains that.

    I've spent three days trying to figure out why it wasn't working. It will save others a lot of headache to know they've just got to bring it down to 3500. =)

  10. Add a let's illustrate or Let's Design section for art!

    As a graphic designer and illustrator I feel like there should be a bit more specific channel options like "Let's Illustrate" and "Let's Design!" as it seems there is currently no place for graphic design.

    As for the illustration vs. drawing, I feel that illustration explains more what we do as artists, the process of thinking, the process of going from sketch to final product, it's not just a drawing, it's an illustration that shows and tells a story!

    Thank you for reading!

  12. toggle for smiles

    One of my mods is allergic to the smiles that beam uses, so he banned any message that has them.

    Can we get a channel toggle to disable this so plain-text smiles are displayed instead?

  13. Console Apps

    I think it would be neat if you guys started developing a XBOX and PS4 Application, so console users can enjoy watching Beam Streams! I think it would be helpful because that is a whole untapped audience just waiting for you guys to give access to your awesome Platform, I am sure it is possible and would help streamers and the website get even more traffic!

  15. More interactive controls

    Currently we have 3 real control methods, "Click on screen", "Joystick" and "Button".

    1. Multi-stop Lever. My inspiration for the design of this would be similar to this image: http://images.neopets.com/space/leverofdoom.gif but in a Beam art style. It would have two modes "stops" or "linear".

    Linear: The lever can be moved up and down and will return (via the API) a value between 0 (completely down) or 1 (completely up). There would be two shortcuts (programmable) which would enable the user to move it up or move it down, or they could just drag it!

    Stops: The lever will snap between…

  17. Toggle Viewer Count in Popout Chat

    I would like if we could hide the viewer count in the popout chat. I don't like seeing the number as it can effect my performance when I stream and I would just rather have the option to hide it.

  18. Tachyon Noise reduction for noisy ambiance

    This feature exists on Xsplit's Gamecaster, where you can have the sofware listen to the ambient noise in your room and it will reduce it so it's practically inaudible during your stream.

    I would love to see this feature added to Tachyon, as this is the only reason I'm really staying with Xsplit. My room is exceedingly noisy due to my computer fans, and a normal noisegate doesn't solve the problem, as cutting my mic out when I'm not talking is good and all, but not helpful when I start talking and you hear the whirring of my computer fans…

  19. Using sparks to buy emotes

    Adding a way to buy emote slots with sparks would be cool! Maybe non partners can get like 2 emote slots for a certain amount of sparks and have to wait until they are partnered to get more.

  20. Notification Keyword

    I would like a way to specify certain keywords, where if anyone mentions that word in a chat message, it would do the same thing as if you were @username mentioned. (Sound alert plays + popup notification)
