      • Help the newer community developers with video tutorials.

        Sometimes the code docs might be very confusing, especially for those who are new or for those who are less used to work with them.

        I'm not used to working code docs, and the tutorials provided on https://dev.mixer.com/ are understandable but not clear as water!

        So I suggest that either the veteran members from community devs or the mixer team itself, make some video tutorials explaining better and in a clear way the docs and the .get() API itself, how it works and how we should use it properly.

        Best of regards, Ed!

        • Server side authorization

          i think one big feature is missing for mixer api. Server side authorization. For example, i wan to update my own channel and streams info via api , and without any browser interaction. Only with my client_id and client_secret ? Many api provider who uses oauth , provides this feature. (like twitch , youtube api's)

          • 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…

              • Remove cached images from Mixer when removed from streamer page

                It seems that the suggested course of action for adding images to our streamer bios is to use imgur. This seems to be because imgur uses a different URL for each image, even if it is the same image uploaded multiple times. This 'ensures' that the image is displayed 'correctly'.

                What this shows me is that Mixer caches each image that's uploaded, so if you end up modifying the image and reuploading it with the same file name, it detects that name already in existence and uses that cached version instead of the new one.

                I think caching an image…

                • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                          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…

                          • 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.

                            • 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.

                              • users/current should return OAUTH scopes

                                As talked about on gitter, there is no way for an OAuth consumer to get the current scopes of a token. I suggest adding a list of scopes to `/user/current`.

                                There was talk that returning scopes is not part of the OAuth spec, and with that I respond: Neither is getting the user associated with the auth token.

                                Returning scopes would allow better 3rd party management of oauth tokens. "Does user have this newly required scope yet? Nope, then they need to re-auth".

                                "My project no longer needs this scope, has the user re-authed with the new set of scopes?…

                                • 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!

                                  • 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.

                                      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.

                                        • 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.
