Mixer Announces Streamer Review System

Published

on

Mixer streams are about to level up, as Mixer has announced some new features, highlighted by a new system which is intended to improve validation and monitoring of new Mixer streamers.

Mixer released a community update this week which announced the new Streamer Review system, which will make a streamer wait 24 hours before streaming with a camera, improving the vetting system of new streamers heading to the platform. Streamers will be required to do this in order to get a new stream key needed to start broadcasting again.

“Starting on September 4th at 10 AM PDT, if you stream to Mixer from PC or mobile, or if you use a camera while streaming on Xbox through native broadcasting, you will be prompted to renew your stream key on Mixer.com. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. On your browser, sign into Mixer with your linked Microsoft Account (MSA).
  2. Navigate to your “Broadcast Dashboard” page, and click on the “Broadcast” tab.
  3. Select “Get Started” inside the “Broadcast” tab.
  4. Watch the required Mixer Safety Video.
  5. Once video is complete, your account will enter a 24-hour review period.
  6. Once the 24-hour countdown is complete, return to your “Broadcast” tab to read and sign the Streamer Pledge.
  7. Congratulations, you have received your new stream key! You can now leverage your stream key to continue streaming on Mixer.”

Additionally, a higher level of moderation is being added as well, which will give streamers to block chatters who fail to meet a certain Mixer level in an effort to cut down on trolling.

Chat Restrictions. At Mixer, we love to encourage interaction between our streamers and viewers. With this feature, we’re providing more choice on who can interact with your channel. You’ll be able to restrict the ability of some users to chat in your channel, according to different criteria that you can set. When you flip the “Restrict Chat Access” switch on, you will have the ability to set a specific channel rank restriction on who can chat, ranging from 1 to 100. For example, if you set the level to 30, only users who have reached level 30 or higher in your channel can join in on the conversation; everyone else will stay muted.

Catbot Moderation Level. This provides more control over what Catbot is filtering out of the chat. In addition to the “Very Low”, “Low”, “Medium”, and “High” options already present, you now have the ability to allow more leniency toward those who are followers and subscribers in your chat by selecting the “Follower Curve” and “Subscriber Curve” options, respectively. You can even get much more granular by flipping the “Catbot Mode” switch on. Once you do, you will have the ability to configure the range of auto-moderation based upon the level users have achieved in their chat.”

While the chat moderation and restriction tools went live on Monday, the Streamer Review System will be available on September 4th, with an early opt-in period beginning on August 28th.

Facebook Gaming Not Replacing Mixer on Xbox One Dashboard

Published

Making things a bit more difficult for Mixer streamers who are planning to become Facebook streamers in the wake of the sudden news that Microsoft was ceasing operations for Mixer and moving to Facebook Gaming, Facebook Gaming will not be replacing Mixer in the Xbox One console dashboard.

“If you are asking if the current Mixer integration in the dashboard is just going to become Facebook gaming. The answer is no,” Major Nelson said when he was recently asked directly about it on Reddit.

Furthermore, Xbox Head Phil Spencer stated on Twitter that Microsoft wants to give players options, which may rule out bringing some form of Facebook Gaming integration to the Xbox consoles in the future.

“Yes, we absolutely want to give gamers choice of where to stream from Xbox” Spencer tweeted in response to a question about the situation.

Shroud Says Twitch Will Lose to Mixer Eventually

Published

on

It may seem like Twitch is hands down winning the “war” between streaming platforms, especially after reporting record-breaking viewership numbers during the past few months people have been in quarantine, but one of the most popular Mixer steamers, Shroud believes that Mixer will eventually overtake the streaming mega-power.

Shroud sparked a debate by sharing a video to his second channel where he admits that Twitch is currently winning, but stated that he feels that Mixer will eventually come out on top, stressing that people need to be patient.

‘Twitch has been around for longer, therefore there’s more people there,’ Shroud said during the video (h/t Metro.uk). “So a lot of people don’t think of the long-con. They don’t think of the long play. They just think of the short-term play.”

Shroud went on to say that he believes that the “up and comers” on Mixer will build their own established audiences, and those brands will be able to compete with some of the older Twitch streamers who have used the platform for years.

Shroud went on to say that Twitch has become “oversaturated” and that he thinks anyone looking to break into the streaming industry would choose Mixer.

“Of course Twitch right now is doing so good and continuing to do so good” Shroud continued.

“Because they have something. People who have started on Twitch 6 years ago, 5 years ago, 3 years ago… if they started that long ago, they probably have a good foundation. ‘When you’re creating a streaming platform, you really just have to sit there, and f**king wait,’ he continues, ‘Like, truly, that’s what you gotta do, and Microsoft’s perfect because Microsoft’s f**king huge. They have the resources to just sit there and wait… that’s how I know Mixer has a very, very good chance to succeed.’
