Recently there have been alot of channels rebroadcasting their streams and twitch has the ability to replay past streams as "live". I would love for there to be a way to rebroadcast streams from VODS on mixer. It should also be added to xbox possibly? Also it would help alot of people who cant do 24/7 rebroadcast streams cause their computers cant handle it.
We do not have plans to do rebroadcasted VODs right now. Our primary focus as it relates to VODs is on creating a way to highlight live streamers, not on driving traffic to VODs themselves

I personally dont like that idea, if people want to see rebroadcast VOD are there for that
Rebroadcasting get the viewers confused
I.E.; some huge YTbers who rebroadcast 24/7 and show nowhere that it is not live, then viwers get frustrated at "Mixer" because "the chat is broke"
I am and i always will be shunting streamers who do rebroadcasting
There are currently 2 channels right now doing rebroadcasts and one of them has 100+ viewers. The people in chat keep telling them to play the game and have no idea its not even live. The reason I love being at mixer is its different and not just like twitch.
I agree with PinkMeatBall. One of the things that I dislike about twitch is this. I feel like streamers would abuse this system so that they can try to maximize on followers. I found it rather annoying on twitch that the broadcasts weren't actually live. I believe it would take away from the quality of mixer. If you can't stream 24/7 then just stream when you can please.
I would honestly not like to see this happen. I have clicked over the last couple days channels that are doing this. I don't want to see a rebroadcast this is for live streaming. If I wanted to watch VOD's I go to someones VOD's. I think this takes away from the live aspect.
I'd like to see this happen.
