Transitioning from Twitch to Mixer (Viewer) Part Two

If you haven’t already read Part One and you’re brand new to Mixer, you may want to cycle back and check out Part One. Otherwise, read on.

Mixer boasts one of the number one feature as Faster Than Light (FTL) where it means streaming a sub second delay between the viewer and streamer. While it really is a defining feature, there are some other great features to get used to when you migrate from Twitch to Mixer.

Community Interaction – Mix Play

Are you ever board of sitting idle and watching your favorite streamer play a game?

Look no further with Mix Play. It will show up on a streamers channel as interactive buttons/commands that overlay the stream or appear below the video. These buttons can include fun overlays, changing the streamers background, voting buttons, donation links, spark donations and more.

In the above screenshot you can see Fortnite streamer Ship and his mini game where viewers can wager up to 100 points per Fortnite match.   It’s a small detail but engages the viewer in the match and the stream. 

You can read more about Mix Play and how to incorporate it into your stream here. A tutorial will come in the future to the Video Wizard.

Levels & Sparks

We talked about Sparks in Part One but I just want to address them again because Sparks go with your Mixer Level.   Essentially, as you level up and earn EXP (from watching streams and from streaming) you unlock more stickers and effects as seen in the screenshot below.

Co-Streaming

But Are, this section is from the viewer perspective?! You’re right but co-streaming is a benefit to the viewer as well. If two streamers choose to co-stream, you can watch them right from their channel in the same window. No need to use any third party websites to view both channels at the same time!

Again, welcome to Mixer and if you have questions, please post in the comments below!

  1. Mixer sounds really similar with account leveling and stickers to Younow! I used to stream on Younow years ago, so it’s cool to learn how there’s still a streaming platform similar (layout-wise?) but more focused on gaming.
