  1. Steam Integration

    There should be a way for Beam to pull the game you are playing from Steam and auto-generate that into the title for the Streamer. With Beam trying to expand and compete with other streaming platforms this could be a draw to Streamers that are variety casters. With this integration of Beam and Steam there is room for growth between the companies.

    • Being able to browse the site while the video is still running

      It would be interesting to have to continue navigating the site and the video continues to run and showing (getting a thumbnail and in the corner of the screen)

      • Improve website UI/UX. As an user I dont like the website interface, It's not intuitive and hard to browser. learning curve should be easier

          • Dashboard for Streamer / Moderator

            We need similar Dashboard what Twitch nowadays offers:

            1) Just small video area (won't eat so much CPU, streamer only wants to see that his stream is working)
            2) Good chat which scales and you can adjust every part location on dashboard (moving chat to left side etc)
            3) Viewers and current stream data

            • Live Level/Sparks Update

              I've noticed one has to refresh the page or open Beam in a new tab to see one's actual EXP, Level, and Sparks counters. Could that become a rolling live update?

              • NEW BEAM DASHBOARD and Smoother stream quality

                I would love to see a Beam Dashboard for watching & communicating with the viewers. I'd also like to see the analytics merged with it. Also I notice a little buffer problem when watching streams. I think this needs to be addressed to prevent viewers from leaving someone's stream due to quality. Keep up the great work BeamTeam!

                  • 'Replay' button

                    A button that allows a user to go back 10-30 seconds in the a stream to re-view past moments/catch details. Preferably this would also have a built-in record button that grabs a .gif/video of set length from the 10-30 second period.

                    • Built in Player Selection in Cog Wheel

                      With the existent option of Video Quality straight in the Video Player, the addition of Audio-Only feature is fantastic however, I believe we're still missing something rather important.

                      The possibility of choosing which Video Player to use instead of having to go to our account settings, change said Video Player settings and refresh.

                      It would be amazing to have this implemented in the Cog Wheel alongside with the Video Quality & Audio - Only mode.

                      Two screenshots will be in this suggestion to support my idea.

                      Best regards,
                      Valsis (The Soup Princess)

                      • Add Devathon Group as a "Game"

                        Devathon is a programming contest that has been on the top of the games listing for the last 12 hours as "Programming". We're a new contest, but we match a lot more of the demographic of Beam than other added programming contests like Ludum Dare.

                        • Multiple Ideas for Beam 2.0 Interfaces

                          I have multiple ideas to make improvement for Beam 2.0 Interfaces. Hopefully the list is long enough :)

                          1. I think we should still keep the gaming and non-gaming sections separate like Beam 1.0 because I think it would be easier to let viewers, like me to search "Arts/Drawing/Programming" in a section, then just look for that title in a pile of games just because it was listed based on viewership.

                          2. I think it would be cool to have a search bar to search for a certain type of gaming/non-gaming titles like the search bar for channels, because sometime…

                          • Small qual

                            Small "quality of life"/"Ease of Access" adjustment. For the new site layout, in streamer's channels, would it be possible for the beam logo that takes you to the beam homepage, and the browse button, next to the streamer's name, to be right clickable? (at least in chrome, didnt test firefox) so you can open them in a new tab instead of leaving who you're watching temporarily, to be able to open more streams you want to watch? As i know many people watch multiple streams at once.

                            • Allow custom avatar circles.

                              Streamers sometimes like having certain users don distinctive colors to easily find them in chat. While the color coded system for usernames is fairly ingrained in the Beam system, it could be argued that allowing a user to customize the border circle around their avatar wouldn't interrupt this existing system. But, it would allow the user to create a unique visual ID of themselves that would be easier for streamers to see without great disruption of existing systems. Allowing custom border shapes, patterns, and colors would be very useful here.

                                • Create a cooking section in misc

                                  create a cooking/food section in misc, so cooking streamers don't have to use Cook, Serve, Delicious! or web show.

                                  • Make Hosting Even More Useful

                                    The following are a few ways that a few of us here on Beam think Hosting a channel could be used to improve the benefits to the streamer, the community, and the viewer:

                                    1. Have a "Hosts" section on the beam.pro homepage (either between those you follow that are live and the unfollowed live streamers or on it's own tab, like Rising Stars, etc...)
                                    This would benefit both the streamer and the community in two ways. First, if someone goes to beam.pro and sees a bunch of the people in their community hosting a channel, then they are likely to…

                                      • 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.

                                        • FTL

                                          Add a toggle to filter shown streamers to only those using FTL. Reasoning: it's the highlighted feature of the site, and most interesting/compelling, yet a user won't know who's using FTL unless they check each streamer themselves
