Hide Stream Preview
If possible could we get the ability to hide entire widgets in the Stream Manager?
The main two I use are My Chat and Activity Feed (with Quick Actions shelved at the bottom of either), Stream Preview is a little useless for me.
SP is such a large widget that it really affects the scale of the others when you reduce the width of your browser window
This option is available but behind the Konami code..... really?
At the very least communicate this.
I'm pleasantly surprised to see that this was implemented but it's not quite perfect yet.
When you toggle the preview off via the 3 dot menu, ideally the whole shelf/widget/whatever should vanish. Instead, you're left with an awkward title bar and upon any refresh of the page the player is visible again requiring another manual hide input.
A quick suggestion on my part would be to have the shelf completely vanish and if users want to add it back, have a + icon in the top right corner next to New Items - Help - Whispers - Profile.
This could be the same method to hide and show other large widgets like Stream Health, Squad Stream or any other native extension that I've seen others request make a return.
Food for thought 👍
While I can hide this by clicking the three dots, I don't want to have to do that every time I go to the dashboard. Let me hide it by default.
If you click on the 3 dots on Stream Preview it will disapear, completely. And there is no way to bring it back.
So you can't completely remove the panel yet, but you can now hide the player by clicking the three dots for Stream Preview
I've accidentally hidden mine and can't get it to show again. I simply clicked on the title bar with the move twice, and now it's gone and won't come back.
Give the option to remove the preview of your own stream!
Be able to turn off the screen preview window.
THIS! I sometimes have it unmuted and accidentally get that playback while I'm streaming, which can be annoying. I'd like it automatically minimized and then you can add it if you want it.
I only use stream preview myself at the start of a stream to make sure everything is working then I hide it. Having it take up so much space on the dashboard makes things cluttered and difficult to use.
Yes, this will have performance effects while gaming or any. I will have to use my second pc for dashboard
There is no need for the stream preview to be that large. It also is going to eat resources. OBS/SLOBS has previews and only occassionally would I play the webplayer to confirm if there was an issue. Its taking up valuable screen space that could be used by useful information
the one thing i don't need on the dashboard, is a constant stream preview, this should be able to be smaller and able to be hidden completely when not required
