  1. A stand alone Twitch program for Windows please

    A stand alone Twitch program for Windows please. Because using Twitch in browser causes heavy RAM usage and also CPU usage.

    Also, i have lots of conflicts when using BTTV.

    So, if you could make a standalone program for twitch, you can also include many of the useful features of BTTV or similar so that we can customise it to our taste.

    A standalone program would be easier on the system resources and also, twitch doesn't have to work through a browser, thus removing many bottlenecks. It doesn't have to be the main way to enjoy twitch but another avenue,…

    • Add viewer count to video player controls bar

      You simply cannot find out how many viewers there are if you are watching with a popped out video player and chat window. As a streamer, I constantly find myself closing and opening the viewer list in attempt to refresh it, but even then it doesn't tell me the number of viewers I have.

            • Sound!

              Hello, sometimes I tend to chat with people therefore I completely miss out on what's actually happening with the game that the person is playing. On the other hand - sometimes I tend to watch broadcaster(s) in full screen and therefore if someone wanted to talk to me or just say something quickly - I would never know because I wouldn't be paying attention to chat. I can see that you guys are trying to keep things nice and simple here on Twitch and I appreciate it, you've already implemented "Whisper" feature - it's okay I guess, but what we…

              • Vote banning or muting

                A mod can't always be watching or all knowing, why not let the chat be allowed to decide who is spamming or being rude to the streamer. I propose a system in which a person in chat can select the person who is being disruptive and issue a stream wide vote. If majority or a certain number of people vote yes they will be banned (or muted) for a certain amount of time. Maybe if they are banned through this system mutiple times they will get increasing longer bans. This system will allow a chat keep itself tidy without the…

                • Dump "/subscribers", introduce a more flexible crowd control:

                  /Lock {parameter 1},{parameter 2},{parameter 3},...{parameter N}
                  /Unlock {parameter 1},{parameter 2},{parameter 3},...{parameter N}
                  "Lock" would limit chat activity based on parameters sepparated by comma or modify them to new limitations, "Unlock" would remove the parameters listed. Choices of parameters would be:

                  All: Would apply all limitations to their default value or remove all of them. Nullifies any other parameter within the same command.

                  Interval(X): Acts similar to Slow mode, down to the very flexibility. Should, however, display the delay in seconds IN THE TEXT WINDOW, not in the chat. That way it won't "flood" the user client-side. Default (no value specified)…

                  • Low level partnership for those who have frequent transcoder on their streams

                    Now that twitch made transcoder a bit more available for un partnered streamers, how about having a low lever partnership for those who have the transcoder frequently applied to their streams?

                    It would have the minimal amount of features of current partnerhip but the crucial ones would be atleat the sub button. Maybe throw there 1 emoticon and then the streamer can work their way up from there again.

                    • Make Twitch a social Media Hub

                      Using models such as Facebook and/or Myspace as a template, make Twitch as personalized as a 'traditional' social media site. Allow regular users an opportunity to invest time and effort into making and sharing their profiles with others.

                      Photo/video galleries, Friend's Lists, Timelines/Walls" that can be commented on, group/private chat...basically, rip off Facebook's connectivity and apply it to Twitch. Let the users build their own communities so they can travel around Twitch together and also provide a place where they can promote their favorite streams themselves. I believe there is potential for a lot of broadcasters to go viral this…

                        • Allow item drops to be available on the apps.

                          Its pretty simple. Allow item drops to be available on the apps.

                          Be able to sync your app account with your twitch account that is synced to your Steam account to get the same benefits but on a big screen.

                          • Allow for a custom sub-mode only message to regular viewers.

                            If a stream is in sub-mode the streamer should be allowed to set a message as to why the chat is in sub-mode.

                            This could be turned and and if a regular viewers tries to chat he will get a message like:

                            "Sub-mode on to avoid spoilers for first week of release!"
                            "We are having a Q&A session for subs."

                                I wanna ask for a feature on html5 player. On full screen/theater mode can we have a display of a viewers count? The current live html5 player doesn't have one i'd like to see viewers count without leaving theater mode/full-screen to look at viewers count.

                                        • Only registering a follow after a certain amount of time

                                          It Is common that people will follow just to have their name shown o9n screen or just to be shouted out so i suggest making a default 15 seconds delay until the follow is verified
