Integrated Stream Delay Option

Some players play games at a high/competitive level and would like to stream their game to viewers, the downside to this using Mixer is that the delay can't allow players to do this without worrying their stream is being watched by their opponents. If you could add an option to pre-set time to delay the stream before broadcasting, that would be cool.

I use the Windows 10 Game Streaming app to stream so just before I start my broadcast, you could add the option in the small purple pop up window!

        Instead of using the integrated Windows gaming app, try using OBS. It has a stream delay function built in already and is free to use. OBS is also very stable and constantly being updated/upgraded. Worth a look if this is something that your stream requires.

        I agree with this. Should have an option for 30 seconds and 1 minute at least, more if possible. I don't use OBS or anything like that and would prefer the simplicity of being able to just use my Xbox to stream.

        Definitely should update the title of this to include "Windows Game Bar" as like the below points out, most streaming apps support delays.

        Another issue is... if you're trying to add a delay to stop stream sniping, unless it's a VERY long delay, you still have the potential to get stream sniped. Streaming competitive play is never going to be a good idea, especially if you're advertising it to your competitors.

        1. OBS (and i think Xsplit) have the option to delay baked right in.
        2. This seems like a game bar request, and a better place to post about it would probably be in Microsoft feedback, instead of mixer feedback.
        3. All that said, if you're thinking a delay of a few hours, AND just using the game bar, THEN it might be helpfull to delay the stream on mixer's end. (as opposed to the computer's end with the Game Bar, Xsplit or OBS.)
