  1. Add support for Co-op Streaming on twitch

    Currently on twitch Cooperative streaming and combining communities is a widely used concept to have two streamers join together on one stream. It would be very beneficial to add support for such a workflow via creating a dashboard option to add another streamer as a co-host for the stream. This could allow users to follow both streamers if they are enjoying the content, instead of just the one who is broadcasting.

    • Set up description buttons like drop down menu

      Introduce the possibility to trasform description buttons in a drop-down menu. So we can have a linear and harmonic pannel and don't need to link on others app what do u want to wrote for a determinated button.
      Just should introduce under "Image Links to:" a new tab: "Enable drop-down menu". Because if u set links you can't set drop-down menu or they would be in conflict.

      • "Would you like to resubscribe to this broadcaster with Twitch Prime?"

        When watching the broadcaster you previously subscribed to with Twitch Prime and your subscription ends, trigger a resubscribe notification In the same way Twitch pops up the "Announce your resub anniversary" notification.

        Have it suggest resubscribing with Twitch Prime once it's expired. If they click "share", it automatically resubscribes with their Prime subscription.

        • VOD Events

          Hi Twitch Staff,

          I really like what do you a lot, but most of the streamers i like are in a totally different timezone. When i want to see a specific game being played by them, i have to look through VOD thumbnails until i find the game I'd like to see.

          As weird as it might sound, there's several adult websites that have markers in a vods timeline (when a scene changes, for example) and when you hover those markers, they will show detailed info at what happened at that part of the video.

          My suggestion is: Monitor events…

              We will continue to work on providing more transcode capacity.

            • Being able to pin posts in your channel feed

              Twitter allows you to pin Tweets to the top of your profile, I think Twitch should allow a similar feature, allowing users to keep a certain post at the top of their feed, even after creating new posts. This would come in handy to make viewers aware of schedule changes, giveaways, etc. etc.

                    • Live Notifications Without Following

                      There is already an option to follow and not receive live notifications, but what about having a system where you can get live notifications without following? Maybe you want try and follow when they are live or maybe give them a few moments before making the decision to show support by following. I think the option to receive live notifications without following would be a tool people would use. There are multiple times where I want to follow someone when they are live, but the problem is, I have no idea when they go live. Some people don't even have…

                          How are you guys subscribing right now? Do you typically log in on a computer? Or through the mobile web page? Has there been times that you just haven’t subscribed because the button wasn’t on mobile?

                        • Roku application bugs

                          The Problem:
                          twitch's Roku app gets stuck in streams. This happens the longer you watch a stream. When watching streams for long periods of time (more than 2 hrs) the application has a tendency to get stuck watching the stream. Changing streams / switching applications may be unresponsive to any button pressed and may require unplugging the Roku to restart.

                          Possible error:
                          This is most likely a memory leak within the application because watching streams for longer than a couple of hours can lag out the entire Roku.
                          Another problem could be a cache issue where cache is failed to…

                              Knowing when your favorite streamers start is sometimes very annoying when the streamer is in a different timezone. You need to convert it to the correct time, and even make sure Daylight Savings Time is applied or not. This can cause quite a lot of confusion.

                              I would love to see that you can add a widget into a panel, where the streamer can put in his starting times, for all 7 days in a week, and insert his timezone (if not autodetected correctly). From here the viewer can check the panel and have it show the streamer's timezone and…

                                  Twitch seems to randomly log me out, despite not having cleared cookies, changed IP address or anything like that. The login process is quite disruptive as it forces a full refresh, meaning I lose video and chat. User experience would be greatly improved if this bug was fixed. It seems I can't go by a week on Twitch without it forgetting me, and no other sites I visit have this problem.

                                      There are technical concerns with these that we need to overcome before adding support for these.

                                    • develop technology with a streaming program to be able to control User and Game audio seperately.

                                      Sometimes, streamers voices get so annoying, like terrible FGC Commentators who only scream "OHH AHH OH HHHH!" and have nothing to contribute to the actual competition. Or when someone is describing something in detail, I don't want to listen to his background music coming from the game. In comes the ability to mute just the person...! Make it happen!

                                        The standard h.264 codec doesn’t support dual audio streams on the same channels, so this would not work for all players.

                                          When a broadcaster announces a broadcast at a specific time he can set a timer on the stream page - this way I can know when the stream starts when the time is given in different time zone
