  1. ADD A "MUSIC" CATEGORY FOR STREAMERS!

    A "Music" Category would be a great addition to help grow mixer and the community. I believe mixer is missing out on not having a "music" category. Video game enthusiasts and music go hand and hand. Wether you are listing to music while gaming or using music in the background for your stream. Music is always in our life. If you can please Vote yes that Mixer should add a Music category for their streamers! This will help connect music and video game lovers who like to live stream music!

    Thank You!

    • I want to accumulate Microsoft Rewards Points using Mixer

      For those of you unaware, you can earn Microsoft Rewards points for various activities like searching for stuff on Bing, buying items from the Microsoft store, etc.

      The points earned can be used towards cool stuff like buying a month of Xbox Gold or Live. You can enter contests for xboxes, or computers.

      I would love to see integration of this into Mixer. Searching for Mixer users, Searching for Games on Mixer. Watching Mixer streamers, or Streaming to Mixer could all accumulate points and draw more attention to the platform.

      Rewarding our viewers with tangible points that can lead to…

      • Favorites list for Games/Categories

        A "favorites" list for games would be really cool. It would make it easier to find awesome streamers in the games you enjoy. This would really help smaller streamers. Searching down through the games is tedious if not many people are watching the particular category. I made an example for it. It might also help to make them searchable. Just an idea! #mixerlove <3

        • Custom Stream Thumbnails

          People have a hard time trying to figure out what stream to watch, however if there was a way to show your personality in a thumbnail people would be a able to maybe, just maybe relate to it and choose your stream. Before a user clicks a stream they have no idea what they’re getting into except for a person in a chair.

          • Mix it Up button

            Mix It Up button.

            This could be a fun new way to discover new and random streamers across Mixer. A simple button that sends you to a random stream (in your rating group)? Like the stream? Stay and interact! Not for you? Hit Mix It Up again!

            Could have a fun animation, that encourages people to Mix It Up!

            Super simple but fun concept.

            • Compatibilidad con la pizarra interactiva en Windows10

              Windows 10 tiene una opcion exelente para streaming con mixer.
              Usando las teclas Windows+G.

              Me parece que podrian explotar eso aun mas si añaden la posibilidad de editar los botones de la pizarra interactiva.

              Desde agregar imágenes, sonidos, gif, vídeos, que se ejecuten en la transmisión con los botones de la pizarra, o crear efectos.
              hasta crear códigos mas personalizados para tus partidas.

              • Recommend Mixer Channels of Twitter Friends

                As you can already link/connect your Twitter account, let's take it a step further by checking against the list of Twitter accounts you follow and if they have a Mixer account.

                If new people you follow on Twitter or users once you connect Twitter have a Mixer account, a notification would come up that "You follow @Warblade on Twitter, want to follow their Mixer channel?"

                  • Finding New Streamers

                    Hi Guys As a new streamer to Mixer I find it next or near impossible to find my stream. Would it be possible to search for streams via stream title as of the moment I can only find my stream searching by my username and searching by the game I am streaming returns no results. How is anyone starting out expected to get any passing traffic.
                    from reading other posts on the forum I believe having zero viewers is affecting the visibility of my stream is anyone else having these issues or is it just myself. But to sum things…

                    • Remove Rebroadcasts as Live

                      Streamers should not be allowed to rebroadcast previous content as Live. The whole concept of Mixer is to interact with viewers. Let's reward the streamers who are actually streaming!

                      I just noticed that kwebbelkop is rebroadcasting 24/7. All he is doing is stealing views from "live" streamers, taking advantage of his Youtube celebrity status.

                      Before anyone hates on this, I really enjoy kwebbelkop when he's live!

                      Also, the entire chat is full of trolling, harassment and spam, since there is no moderation. Viewers are hosting and following him, instead of supporting live streamers. Most of the don't even realize that…

                      • rising star - smarter algorithm or catered content

                        Currently it seems as though the rising star section is new users with 0 followers. It would be nice if there was more behind this, like some basic criteria for example, something in the About Me section, a nondefault picture, maybe even smarter than this like a certain percentage of growth within a certain time, or streaming frequency. Also using it to highlight games with less viewers could be good.

                        I know this type of algorithm and potential machine learning can take a bit to perfect so in the mean time maybe some catered content goes in there. You have…

                            • Unified Search

                              There should be a unified search option front and center on the mixer homepage. Currently the channel search is confusing, when I just want to search for a specific game. Users typically won't know the specific channel name they want to search for, but rather the game they're looking to search for. For the channel search to be front and center makes things confusing. I also encountered an even more confusing user flow when I typed my game search query into the channel search, and then got no results before noticing the game search. After typing my query into the…

                              • Search by game should show streams that previously featured that game

                                I'd like to find people who stream games I like, but there may be few or no people streaming it depending on the time of day. There should be a section below the people actively streaming that shows channels that have streamed the game recently (in the past two weeks or so).

                                • Search for streams by title

                                  I can search for a user/channel name, but it would be helpful to search by title. This would allow me to look for things like "#raidfriendly" or "giveaway" or "Xbox".

                                    On the front page, add an additional filter or a header tab to narrow down results to show just the streamers who are currently costreaming with somebody.

                                      Add a "Watch Random Stream" button! Love the feature on Crunchyroll for discovering new anime. It'd be great for discovery on Beam!

                                          I believe it would be great if you guys added in a game title like "Game in development" I was trying to stream hyperun and a couple of other pre-alpha games, and couldn't even put it into a correct discoverable search term.
