Reruns vs LIVE
Live vs Reruns
i think it should be made cleared when a chanel is on a rerun, it shouldn't say "LIVE"
A way that i think they could help new streamers, or lew viewercount streamers overall is to have two subcategories, Live and Reruns.
this would let streamers that are live have a chance to grow.
on the asmr category it's getting out of hands the amount of reruns, youtubecompilations and bots. and we can't do anything about it too. i've reported multiple channels but they are still there, even getting into front page. it's sad to see how the essence of t
witch is getting lost.
promoting reruns over live channels
I agree. All these recorded streams being labeled as live is getting annoying. Makes me just want to go watch Youtube videos instead.
I agree, Live should mean Live.
These bots need to be removed.
Suspending all further monetary transactions with twitch until this is resolved.
I seems to be super juicy to run your pre-recorded footage as LIVE and grow with a speed light on Twitch and other platforms. I am a streamer, and I have a YouTube footage that I can run "LIVE", but I just choose not to.
I hope Twitch will hear us.
Streamers who do that just show how they really "care" about the community.
I agree with having a different area for the pre-recorded stuff outside of the "live streams" area.
I have no issue with reruns, but currently it's not very clear when the content is pre-recorded vs actually live.
I like prerecorded streams, but it needs to be made clear that it's a rerun and not LIVE. There is a difference between Live and Rerun. Live is always better, but it needs to be more clear that it is a rerun.
Reruns/prerecorded content shouldn’t be tagged as being “live.” It defeats the current system of separating live content and reruns. It clutters the live content area, creating unnecessary work for people who are interested in live content by making them have to scroll passed irrelevant content.
no issue with rerun, but should not be marked as "Live"
I don't have anything against reruns, but i think it should be clear when the channel is actually live and when it's a rerun
Live should be Live!!!
Twitch streamers should be required to stream at least a percentage of their total online time live. Pre-recordings take away what is essential to Twitch, i.e. being live and in contact with an audience.
100% Twitch is about LIVE content streaming not streaming pre-recorded content.
I agree with this completely. I would want to see reruns and lives separated within category and running prerecorded material 24/7 banned.
Something really needs to be done about the ASMR category, reruns and re-streaming vods/youtube videos is really hurting the smaller channels that are trying to grow. How is someone supposed to gain any attention when all the top streams are just reruns and youtube videos? Thousands of viewers watching content that isn't even live... great 'live streaming' platform you have Twitch.
Reruns should be removed from appearing in the category and action needs to be taken against the channels that are streaming offline content. But will Twitch do anything about it? Nah.... lol
Would it be possible to have a simple popup on the control panel of every live stream every few hours that if not acknowledged switches the stream to rerun or not live?
I've seen so many versions of this and they are all bad. I've seen channels that run other people's pre-recorded stuff. I've seen the "Live" thing that people are talking about. I know of one streamer, for whatever reason, has a live channel and a 24-7 rerun marked "Live". Then ofc there are all of the ASMR channels that broadcast a drawing of an anime woman with pre-recorded audio. Ever since ASMR got it's own category, many fake asmrtists have jumped on the bandwagon.
ON a side note, we should have a category for all the boob streamers, irregardless of their main cat. I mean people watch those channels for the *****, not the asmr or game or dancing (ok, well they probably watch for the shake and jiggle).
I can understand why some would want to stream their yt videos to a certain extent. YT is not ASMR friendly and so many videos are instantly demonetized. So essentially, Artists make content that they are not getting a dime for. I wouldn’t get too down on those who stream their YT videos on twitch but I do agree with the 24/7 sentiment. There should be some audience interaction. How much I’ll leave to others to decide (don’t want to be the gate keeper on that). I am all for a separate category. There should be a “Live”, a “Rerun”, and a “PreRecorded” designation for Twitch folks to choose from. Reruns would be for old streams and PreRecorded would be for content the streamer has created offline or on a different platform. This we, we can filter who is live, there is no confusion, our feeds are not filled with “Live” people that aren’t there and we can still enjoy all the content from our favorites.
Completely agree. It goes against the whole concept of "live"streams. Reruns, as Twitch allows them as a function to rerun Twitch streams, are a good way to catch up. But those streams that are marked as "live" but are just YouTube videos on repeat for 24 hours is completely misleading, even to the platform, in my honest opinion. A lot of actual ASMR livestreamers have to voice their disappointment over it on the daily since it affects THEIR numbers. As I am writing this, 3 out of 5 "live"streams are prerecorded content. And often not moderated. People often don't even realize they are not watch live content because the stream is marked as "live." This definitely seems like there has to be more control over this since it is getting more out of hand as each day goes on.
It seems like a great idea in the short term, but absolutely horrible in the long run. These people aren't "live", how is it even considered "streaming"?? Come on twitch, lets use some common sense here and nip this in the bud...
This is so unfair to those who are spending their precious time streaming live to viewers when there are so many being allowed to use spliced together Youtube videos and Reruns and passing them off as live. Half the people don't seem to realise that it's pre-recorded. Live should mean live; you should be able to interact with the streamer and suchlike.
The more people who see nothing being done about certain channels the more emboldened they feel to do it themselves, and if it isn't ceased it will end up with many replicating.
If we all put live pre-recorded then Twitch would no longer be live. It doesn’t grow us smaller streamers this system. Twitch, you must not allow this.
