Complete 2020 list of things that need to be Fixed.
1000 Suggestions won't do anything you need clear docs and real-time info to collaborate with the community but here is what i think needs addressing.
Desktop App stuff:
The built-in recorder is a mess it won’t record your current layout nor separate streams and its resolution/bitrate is too low we need selectable output for this not to be a ‘’backup thing’’ we also need multi audio tracks embedded GMT or UTC time code and a file name output that is standard like ‘’Sunday 2019.12.08 09.53.48 AM GMT’’ etc not ‘’video1’’ and the banner needs to be hidable and a ‘’i dont care’’ option to be enable able in the client-side so that users who always record dont have to waste time and the ability to auto-start recording on call beginning.
Calling a phone number and adding to group calls allow recording its 2020 any desktop can record with OBS or any other basic application if you’re going to offer the ability to take the load off local resources then make it fully usable recording laws do not apply to the online world that’s that if you want to add an auto-play message on the beginning then go for it just dont cripple the feature its now a critical thing for smartphone users.
Please make a ‘’I know. click to hide’’ since the NDI and Recording banners take up a huge amount of space on mobile & desktop viewing full video streams impossible unless your patching all your feeds into OBS via NDI on a desktop and make a working full-screen mode.
File upload size we need 2GB or 10GB, not 300mb how the **** am I meant to send a 16-hour wave file or anything substantial like 4k 100mbps video i have to use FTP and G-Suite ever since you removed P2P unlimited size file sending its ridiculous.
Drag and drop anywhere to send files while in-call. (God this would save so much time…)
Auto-Download of files to a folder needs to be fixed.
Chatlog export almost all reliable comms platforms have this with 8.0 skype lost this critical feature and its impossible to save huge logs of legal and or historic messages.
Emojis i know this is stupid but enable a Unicode option so we can use standard stuff it’s 2020, not 2015 anymore.
Selectable audio-video resolutions and bitrates WE NEED IT AND WE BLOODY WANT IT!
Contacts… ability to absolutely remove contacts blocked or not… ability to hide mutual contacts ability to change the client-side view picture we can already change the name and the 101 other things people are asking for!
Huge translation issues.
Forced censorship its, not 1940’s its the 2020’s (a tick box will do)
SRT export or embed into call recordings options (we really need this)
Photo/Audio/Video Broadcaster view:
NDI THANKS SO MUCH FOR THIS (now fix the 101 bugs)
We need P2P for mobile clients to desktop this as a selectable option would be perfect for boots on the ground civ’s and crews needing to get a live direct feed out to a desktop client for RTMP rebroadcast.
We need real control over video and audio streams.
Mobile App stuff:
Make the UI more friendly less cramped
On apple simply use the ios built-in API for the camera, not this Snapchat rip off us real users dont like images that are 90% compressed and never in-focus.
Integrate file transfer and raw file upload, not 200kb jpg auto-convert cancer.
Video output selection 720/1080/2160 with 30/60fps options.
Simple call meshing when calling into a desktop call you can decide to disable or treat the mobile call as a separate client so audio/video can be displayed/recorded via a desktop.
Fix synchronization issues messages and calls dont update half the time.
