        I'm new to streaming. I'm having a lot of fun with it, but it could be improved. I started streaming directly with the xbox broadcast feature. it works great but I cant have an exciting overlay, plus the chat box covering a large portion of my screen is a hinderance. I purchased a capture card so I can dive deeper. now i'm getting things going the way I want, except I cant hear myself. I would like to be able to capture my voice over/my parties chat over the capture card

        TL;DR please change the chat box on xbox broadcast feature, its big and inconvenient, and I would like to be able to stream my own and my party chat through capture card.

        Make it we’re u can add music and custom overlays on mixer this would give a boost to mixer over twitch

      • Zackary Alan Fitzhugh commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Give us options to set bitrate, resolution, and FPS. If the twitch app can do the Mixer app should at least have those options to give users more control of their stream!

        We need more options for mixer, example, I would like to be able to select the Bitrate like to new app of twitch, select to resolution for my stream and the FPS need minimum 720p60 for Xbox One like to PS4

        It would be great to be able to customize the mixer status overlay. With it being a solid bar it makes it hard to see while gaming, it just gets in the way no matter where you move it. If you could give us the option to make it translucent that would be a huge improvement. Also, there are only a few icons on the bar does it really need to be as long as it is? If you could clean it up so it's more streamlined that will also improve things.

        Possibly add some preset borders, sub noises, etc... To the Xbox Mixer app and the ability to play music on stream. Also some better ways to advertise your stream.

        Comment other ideas bellow.

        Option to remove status overlay for both twitch and mixer

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'd like to be able to hide the Mixer status overlay when I'm streaming. I don't need it on the screen as I use the mobile app to keep an eye on who's watching and what's happening in chat. The overlay is just in the way.

        I want there to be a privacy setting for Mixer Streams for who can watch it, basically is it Private? Friends can view this? Or Public, like so many other features on Xbox live have this option for and for the same reason, everyone should have seen at least 1mean,weird, disgusting or bullying people in the Chat or watching the stream and it would be more comfortable if you can make it if only friends can watch your streams or make it private if you’re worried about that kind of attention, please note before commenting that there are currently no ways to make your streams on Mixer friends only, public or private which is why I want this

        We need this Idea Drive. I think we need more control over our Kinect while broadcasting (and supported web cams.)

        I for one don't have a dedicated gaming space. My bedroom doubles as my office\game room. I game and am about 8 feet away from the Camera......

        I want the ability to be able to Zoom in. It doesn't have to be fancy like the Auto Zoom on Twitch. Though that would be nice. Just an ability to zoom and pan so I can get me 100% in frame instead of 80% being dedicated to my bedroom.

        Some people have really good internet so let us choose our bitrate and resolution, we want better quality streams.

      • Brian Kaufman commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The in-game overlay that shows the number of viewers you have when streaming should be removable or customizable in some way. The overlay covers up important information in most games.

      • Anthony Thurl commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        A feature on the mixer app from your phone that allows you to use your phone as a facecam for your stream.
