Mixer is the second most popular live video game streaming platform right after Twitch and is home to some of the biggest names in the online video gaming streaming industry.
Mixer was officially launched in 2016 as Beam and it was purchased and renamed the same year by Microsoft. Within a short span of 4 years, it has grown to become a giant in the video game streaming industry. Mixer competes directly with Twitch. You can check out the top 20 streamers on Twitch here.
Mixer streams are either live or on-demand. You can find streams for almost every game and it’s not limited to just games. At the time of writing this story, we have a stream of Dungeons and Dragons running on a separate tab.
Mixer boasts its FTL (Faster Than Light) technology (you’ll understand the nomenclature if you’ve seen Battlestar Gallactica), wherein the latency between a streamer and receiver is less than a second making the stream and interactions real-time. However, not all streams are FTL supported. If you want to watch only FTL streams, Mixer provides an option.
