1. A method, comprising:
receiving a broadcast stream from a broadcast provider;
selecting, by a stream integrator, a set of user media streams from multiple user media streams, captured by multiple user capture devices, based at least in part on data indicating a relationship between the user media streams and one or more people in the broadcast stream;
receiving, at the stream integrator, a plurality of user selections of user media streams from a plurality of user interface devices;
summing, by the stream integrator, the number of user selections received for each media stream of the set of user media streams;
selecting, by the stream integrator, at least one of the set of user media streams based on the sum of user selections received for each media stream of the set of user media streams exceeding a threshold number selected by a user of a first presentation device;
integrating the at least one of the set of user media streams into the broadcast stream, wherein integrating the at least one of the set of user media streams includes generating the broadcast stream and the at least one of the set of user media streams for display on the first presentation device;
receiving, at the stream integrator, a user selection of the at least one of the set of user media streams; and
generating, by the stream integrator, the at least one of the set of user media streams for display at a second presentation device, the second presentation device being different from the first presentation device.
