  1. Allow sub-mode to non-subs

    I watch a streamer, Loserfruit, who has multiple non-subs who are worth a lot to the stream in terms of specific instructional power (for single player games) and general stream presence. I would suggest the ability to give full chat powers to such individuals. While there is normally two separate modes, unofficially called "Pleb-mode" or "Sub-mode", I feel it would be beneficial to streams as a whole for the gift of "sub-mode" to be given. There are many "plebs" that contribute as much, if not more than, some subs. They should be given a possibility to speak as though they…

    • changeable subscription plans

      It should be possible to change a subcription plan (from 1 to 6 monthly basis) without canceling the sub. It is a pain to manage multiple subs and canceling the sub remind me when i have to resub with the new plan.

      • Integrate Twitch with "Amazon Payments" to create a chargeback free system which supports Twitch with small fees.

        Amazon has launched Amazon Payments. Twitch should integrate this into the site to provide broadcasters with a safer method than PayPal.

        Streamers would be jump starting the service, helping out Amazon.

        Payments could possibly be made out to Streamers the same way subscriber payments are made. This way Twitch handles the transaction, keeping the streamers personal info safe.

        I'd much rather the fee's taken out of my streams tips be given to Twitch to further support development rather than multiple third party programs.

        • Create a 'Watch History' for all users

          For those who enjoy watching broadcasts they have seen in the past. Often we come across that perfect Twitch channel, that perfect moment to seal the follow, and also sometimes we want to share it with a friend. Let's make a section where we can find what we've seen and recommend away!

          • Kill Youtube.

            I feel so far you are doing a fantastic job. You're design for the website is flawless, your interface and interaction is spot on, but It's time to take on the biggest fish. I see you've just released your own video upload system to compete with Youtube, in this case better them. If you could maybe start a scheme in the amount such as youtube in partnerships for the lesser channels that struggle to reach the spotlight, it would cut off all competition.

              • Language Filter

                Implement a filter that would be present no matter what section of the site you are on allowing you to filter based on a primary language.

                1) Force a streamer to select a single primary language
                2) Allow streamer to select multiple secondary languages
                3) Implement a filter that would be at the top of any search/game/category listing...

                The filter should have two features.
                - Allow user to filter based on primary language ONLY
                - Allow user to sub-filter based on secondary languages optionally

                This accomplishes two goals.

                1) Allow the viewer to filter down to streamers that for the…

                  2. creative nudes is a thing, but there is a very fine line between art and porn. that is something Legal should decide.
                  3. content SHOULD be oriented towards the audience (yes we know anyone can turn a computer on)

                  • In Tournaments, allow for us to see details outside of the stream

                    I've been watching the LoL worlds games on Twitch, but a friend told me I should watch it on LoLesports.com instead. Watching it there gives me a little more information (Such as the gold of each individual player) whereas with the stream we're only able to see what the stream wants us to see. It would be nice to have the ability to add extra options or remove options from a stream (Player items, KDA, things that sometimes get in the way of the action) to control our own stream, or put them off stream on an extended view (like…

                    • Allow phrases/sentences to be banned/blacklisted (turn into *** in chat)

                      It will protect streamers and others from having their personal information out. An example is allowing an entire phrase to be blacklisted: like a full name "John Doe", an address "123 Street City State Zip code", or a school name "University of Twitch", or phone number "123 456 7890"

                      • Give us the ability to change the notification sound on Android Push notifications

                        I like being able to change all of my apps notification sounds so I know what the notification is without even turning my head to look at my phone.

                        Right now with the new update it just uses the notification sound as set in Android settings, which can conflict with other notifications. I'd like to be able to change the notification sound for the Twitch app specifically, like many other apps on Android allow you to do.

                          I have noticed that spambots are becoming more rampant again on twitch and I feel a better solution to dealing with the bots are needed. Obviously this is hard to do as bots use multiple accounts to essentially "spam" a link in someone's chat. However I have noticed that bots tend to latch on to streams and "spam" the same link over and over so here is my solution. Why not add the links to a globally banned link list or something similar where if a certain link is posted in a twitch chat it will be *** out? how…

                              • Add a "Virtual Reality" category

                                There's going to be a major surge of interest in VR technology once the consumer models start shipping the end of this year and into 2016. As of now, VR streamers are scattered all over the place and are hard to find.

                                The majority of games that VR streamers are going to be playing will not be big name titles, but rather small miscellaneous tech demos, so there currently isn't any fitting category for us to set for our stream.

                                It's also not a technology that appeals to the majority of gamers currently, so having a reliable place for us…

                                    • Always show "Playlist" on screen (no mouseover) for playlist mode.

                                      With the new playlist mode many viewers are confused about if the channel is live or not. If you mouse-over the video it does show "Playlist" but I think there needs to be a more prominent "PRERECORDED" or "PLAYLIST PLAYING" always on-screen. Even having it in the title doesn't seem to be enough.

                                      • Add a "favorite emotes" section for those that subscribe to more than a few streamers.

                                        I subscribe to quote a few streamers, and this makes finding that one emote I'm trying to use difficult.

                                        Better Twitch had/has a "most used emotes" tab next to the current channels, and the all tab.

                                        I'd love to select about 10 emotes as my "favorites" so I can quickly access them!

                                          I can watch a Twitch stream on ChromeCast (which is essentially Chrome running full-screen at the TV), and the stream quality automatically switches as needed.

                                          However, the web browser version (i.e. the Flash-based viewer) selects a single quality and sticks to it.

                                          Shouldn't the web browser viewer also have the "auto" quality?
