  1. Page Resolution

    I am having issues with the website's inability to scroll at times. Like yesterday I was trying to interface BEAM with my discord server and to select a channel for the chat to be mirrored in. Problem was that the channel I had created for it was being listed below the bottom of my screen and I had no way of scrolling the list in order to get to it. I had to delete channels from my discord server in order to get the channel name up and selectable.

    Another similar problem is.. well I will just use a random…

    • Theater Mode

      I propose a Theater Mode type deal, with the chat on one side and the video almost fullscreen. All it'd do would make the video player fullscreen with the chat available on the right, making the viewing experience that much better if you want to remove the interactive buttons.

          For PC game streaming (for example, League of Legends) you can't pull the preview window to a second monitor. Make this an option

          • Scrollbars on Firefox

            Chrome users got nice transparent scrollbars. It would be great to see them also on Firefox.

            • On-screen random number generator

              I would quite enjoy an On-screen random number generator for things like giveaways. The maximum number should be changeable and the viewers should be able to see the result on stream

              • Timer/Stopwatch

                Beam should have a Timer/Stopwatch feature in order to allow speedrunners to get involved more in the platform. The time should be visible on screen to viewers so they too can keep track of current goals

                  It would be cool if Beam would install some sort of plugin that allows streamers and viewers to set their own time zones. Users select their timezone in their profile. Then the streamers would have a schedule option so they could enter their tentative streaming schedule (not mandatory, but optional for the streamer).

                  When the streamer sets their schedule, the viewer automatically sees it in their own time zone in the Streamer's information.

                    • Blacklist games on browser tab

                      I think it would be great an option to blacklist games on the Browser tab, so any viewer could just stop seeing channels playing certain games they don't ever want to watch.
                      As simple as: I want to blacklist CS:GO, then no channel playing CS:GO at that precise moment will appear when browsing for streams.

                        • Fullscreen + Chatbox

                          Fullscreen + Chatbox

                          With Fullscreen already being integrated and Theater Mode being in the roadmap, I'd suggest an option for the Fullcsreen-mode. To have Fullscreen + a little box where you can add Chat-Messages. Many streamers integrate Chat in the Livestream so you don't need to leave the fullscreen to read it. A little input box at a corner of the screen would barely overlap with the stream but give the possibilty to communicate with the Stream without leaving the Fullscreen Mode.

                              • Browse Area - Feedback for changes

                                Hello, I would like to see some changes to how we all find streamers to watch. I think it is important to allow easier browsing based on needs and wants, for example

                                Page that shows a list of games rather than side bar - Can sort by A-Z, Popularity, views, ratings etc
                                Select by platform - Ability to choose what platform they are streaming from. Xbox, PS4, PC, Switch etc etc
                                By County - Find new streamers based on country.

                                Any other suggestions please feel free to comment below and let me know your views

                                • Web Interface is unreasonable heavy on limited hardware

                                  The web Interface is unreasonable demanding, due to heavy use of javascript and such, or so I suspect. I cannot claim to be an expert.
                                  Personally I'm unable to use the interface and am left with the option of watching through a local player, as I fear spontaneous combustion otherwise, which is of course not a very interactive experience.
                                  In other words, there are demanding 3d games that are less heavy on my laptop.
                                  Now my hardware is admittedly rather limited, but still, this is extreme, and I would suggest that you make it a priority to reduce the impact…

                                  • Video Quality overlay

                                    he popup/overlay asking to lower video quality is not well placed. It's sitting over the controls.
                                    Suggestion:
                                    1. Dont use a Snackbar, use a smaller bubble or circle instead and place it somewhere else
                                    OR
                                    2. Keep using the snackbar but place it at the top of the screen.

                                    Thanks!

                                    • Remember volume

                                      Whenever I switch from stream to stream or even just reload a stream, the volume goes back to default. It should remember the previous setting to avoid going from low to high everytime.

                                      • Xbox One Remove Overlay

                                        I'd love the ability to be able to turn off the overlay completely on the Xbox One Beam streaming. It simply takes up space for lots of the games that I play cause all the areas need to be shown not covered. I keep my PC beside my system so I can interact with people and see the chat.

                                        • 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.
