Polls feedback / improvements
Polls is a great system however there could be some improvements
1) longer running polls - 5, 10, 60 or indefinite (broadcaster stops poll)
2) browser source customisation / improvement - it's currently a little bit hacked together with no real thought. like if added to OBS how am i meant to change whats being displayed?
3) there should be an API available for this (speaking from a developer standpoint)
Definitely Poll time
Please allow poll timer to be longer than 10 minutes. I stream roughly between 11-15 hours 3 days a week. When I run a poll like? “What game would you like to see next stream?” That’s an all day poll. Having to “stop” the stream to retype every 10 minutes (if I remember to look), writing down the results, telling viewers not to vote in this poll if they voted previously, etc… is really time consuming. Keep everything else the same with the poll. Just extend the timer to maybe 24 hours. Or until streamer manually ends the poll (not the stream).
Thank you 😊

Thanks for your suggestion Lucky! These are items that are on our bucket list. We built the browser source customization to test interest in the feature, and our plan is to migrate fully into the APIs so 3rd parties can build polls overlays.
