Mixer was a Microsoft-owned service for video game streaming and had direct streaming capabilities from Xbox. It originated from the acquisition of Beam.
On June 22, 2020, Microsoft announced that Mixer would be shutting down in one month, on July 22, 2020. After that date, the site will redirect to Facebook Gaming.
Access to past VODs will be available until July 22, 2020. After that date, users will need to submit a written request to retrieve their data.
Mixer has a well-documented public API.
API points of interest include
https://mixer.com/api/v1/channels?limit=100 (online channels) and
https://mixer.com/api/v1/recordings?limit=100 (channels with saved broadcasts- note broadcasts are saved for a limited time for most channels anyway but this could be a good discovery mechanism).
