  1. Add a "follower" role to the Beam Chat API for Bots

    With the Beam Chat Bot API, you get several pieces of information about a particular user chats in your channel. You can figure out if they are a sub, moderator, pro user, staff, etc.

    What you can't find out though is if they are a follower.

    Most of the bots on beam do raffles. The majority that do raffles, also support "subscriber" and "follower" based raffles as well.

    The Chat API tells you a person is a subscriber, but doesn't tell you if they are a follower. The only way you can figure out if a user is a follower…

    • Add an option to make a beam user a [BOT]

      As like discord, we need an option to make a user a bot, so that streamers and users watching the stream know that its a bot and running a program and not a real user.

        Planned  ·  Matt SalsamendiMatt Salsamendi responded

        Happy to say that after much discussion we’re planning on making this a thing! We’d love to give third party developers the tools they need to shape the experience on the platform directly and we’re confident this is a good step in that direction.

      • Spark Transfer

        If spark buttons are used, the sparks shouldn't just disappear endlessly into a void. A percentage if not all of the sparks should be given to the streamer with the interactive buttons.

        • API | Teams Search Endpoint

          As there is a search endpoint for both users and channels endpoint. Can we get one for teams to?

          This wold be useful for developers to hook into and lookup teams and for Beam to also support this.

          It wold be nice to see it under /teams/search . This should not take long to impotent.

          • Developer-Controlled Confetti

            It would be fantastic to have an API endpoint (or a chat packet, or... something) to deploy confetti on your own stream, for custom events and such. ;)

            • Followers Endpoint Fixes

              The followers endpoint should be sortable and limitable like other endpoints within the api.

              Currently only the current page's results are sortable.

              Developers would love a URI to fetch for their latest follower.

              • URL Paremeters for embeded videos for mute, auto play, etc

                Embedded videos need to have url parameters for options such as muting a stream by default or enabling/disabling auto play. This is helpful for websites that want to embed a preview of the stream in the site but don't want to necessarily bug their visitors with audio that starts playing without their consent.

                • IFTTT integration?

                  I wonder if anyone involved in Beam development makes use of IFTTT.com? It would be awesome to connect their internet-of-things system with Beam events like following, hosting, etc.

                  • Embed Player Parameters

                    It would be cool if we could be able to customize embed players with parameters, like this:

                    https://beam.pro/embed/player/Snowie?warning=0&audio=0

                    This would be useful in many situations. Mine is that I want people on a site to be able to see a "preview" of the stream in the background, behind all other elements.
                    I understand for one thing that the Mature Audience warning is important, but still it would be a cool feature.

                    • add channel:host:self scope

                      Hi, I'm working on a website for a broadcaster, it has a way to login with Beam OAuth, so people can do a bunch of things on the site, including HOST from the stream page, the issue is, as it is at the moment it requires the `channel:update:self` scope, which is not the best of scopes to use for a streamer's website, as this obviously gives the site access to update the logged in users channel settings, but as it stands right now this is the only way I can add a host button, would be nice to have a…

                      • wordpress

                        Would love for a JQuery Wordpress Plugin to show online stream status

                        I've been using a plugin like this for WordPress, which detects if a stream is online and has a "Live" or "Offline" icon showing up. https://wordpress.org/plugins/twitch-status/

                        Would love if someone was able to implement this for streams who have their own website and/or embed their Beam streams on their site.

                        • Xbox One API

                          I'm assuming that with being acquired by Microsoft that there will be integration into the Xbox One console. That's great and all but would put you on par with Twitch. Opening the API could be groundbreaking by letting people develop apps to create stream overlays directly from the console. This would make the advantages of using Beam significantly higher!

                          • Multi-Channel Single-Connection interface

                            I'd like to see multiple channels chat handled under a single connection. The gist being something along the lines of:

                            Authorization should take place with the websocket upgrade request resulting in the connection.

                            Joining a specific channel's chat
                            - If the channel id does not exist an error should be returned in the reply
                            - if a join method has already succeed on the connection for the channel id, an error should be returned in the reply
                            ```
                            // Client:
                            {
                            "type": "method",

                              • Private FTL Server

                                One of the features that I've been itching for is the ability to host an FTL ingest server on a private network. Currently, I run my own streaming equipment for a private steam setup (friends and family), and the latency introduced by the current standard protocols (RTMP, HLS, etc.) is a nuisance. Would it be possible to see a standalone (or plugin, similar to nginx-rtmp-module) stream server? I've asked this a few times, and received conflicting answers on it. The FTL protocol is extremely exciting for someone like myself, but without a server-side offering, it's effectively useless to me.

                                • Make dynamic image updates for descriptions

                                  So, i had a few people request for me to make a website to embed in beam channel descriptions that would show when other users are live. But beam does not allow embeds(iframe) thus i thought, what if i make a website that outputs an image that says when the user is live or not. so i made that site. but because of CloudFlair's caching system the images do not update in the channel description. My request is dynamic image updates in channel descriptions. i think this would benefit a lot of people, and really benefit bigger stream team owners.

                                  • Implement OPTIONS method on all API endpoints

                                    Whilst I was working on a project involving REST APIs, I came across this little article: http://zacstewart.com/2012/04/14/http-options-method.html

                                    talking about the OPTIONS method for REST APIs. This method, documented in RFC 2616 section 9.2, "lets the client discover what it's allowed to do to a resource."

                                    While this may not be terribly useful to everyone, it looked interesting and since it's a part of the spec, I figured it might be a quick little something to add to make the API even better.

                                    • Make /api/v1/users/<user> endpoint work with string username too

                                      I've been working with the Beam API recently and part of what I've been doing includes looking up data about users. The API is pretty great in regards to most things, but the /api/v1/users/<user> endpoint is not one of those in regards to the fact you *have* to use the user ID to look up a user.

                                      Obviously, you can search the API for the user, and then get the ID from that, but it would be really nice if you could make a request to https://beam.pro/api/v1/users/Matt instead of https://beam.pro/api/v1/users/137.

                                      This shouldn't be too difficult to implement, but would…

                                      • host

                                        Can 3rd party apps finally pull proper host numbers yet?
                                        This has been requested by so many people and apps, for so long, its about time this is a thing....
                                        If it already is, please tell me how, if it isn't, this should have been a thing already

                                        • Add an event to Constellation that notifies a listener that a new VOD has been processed

                                          Add an event to Constellation that notifies a listener that a new VOD has been processed, it would prevent developers that want to do things with VODs from having to poll the /recordings REST endpoint to find out if anything new has shown up.
