  1. More Audio Options For Viewers

    - on programs like obs studio you can manage audio sources, it would be awesome if the viewers could manage them for themselves! how many times have you watched a stream but didnt like the song, or the game volume was too higher than the microphone source or vice versa?
    - In some cases i felt the need to just listen to a streamer, so to save internet data the option "audio only" could be great

      • Commenting using bits allows you to use the channel's emotes

        Since Bits were introduced and not everyone is capable (maybe economically, no credit card or whatever) it would be cool to be able to use channel emotes by cheering on the channel. The channel host may be able to set a minimum cheer amount for the feature to apply, just like the donation minimum.

              • block a specific user from hosting or viewing my stream

                It would be nice to block a specific user to host and even view my stream. I worked hard to get my viewers and for someone who is mean to me, doesn' t deserve any followers or viewers watching my stream.

                • Make a folder-system for Vod and highlights

                  How about adding a folder-system for a highlights. It would make easier to browse the highlights. Example you have many different games so you could put all thos games in their own spesific folder and viewers could easily see what games streamer has played.

                    • Allow whispers from friends but not strangers

                      Currently the only option for blocking whispers from "strangers you don't follow" also blocks whispers from people on your friends list. And it would make sense that friends are not considered strangers. What's the point of having someone on your friends list if you can't chat with them?

                      • Create an emote option for Follower Only mode

                        With the advent of follower only mode, I've noticed one glaring problem with its use in Twitch culture.

                        Several times I've seen raids on channels become completely derailed because the streamer is in follower only mode. While this is usually to avoid spoilers or help control their chat room, it seems like it restricts the flow of the community. Not to mention reducing the number of people that stick around for the raided streamer.

                        To help this I'd suggest an emote-only option for the streamer, that allows non-followers the ability to write emotes, but not text before the follower only…

                        • A proper featured system

                          As a streamer myself I struggle with getting new viewers or any viewer at all, especially since I do not speak english in my streams.

                          The current system makes it really hard for new streamers to get more viewers while the larger streamers get viewers "pumped up their asses" because of the ranking. Making it basically a "unfair" system.

                          I thought of a solution:
                          Why not create a proper system to feature streamers? Not streamers that already are in the top 10 or top 25 of their game but streamers who show certain effort, who stream with passion or patience.

                            • interaction between broadcaster and viewer

                              develop a feature that allows broadcaster select specific person from the viewer list and do a video call with the person. it will be useful for the broadcaster to do direct interaction if anything happen such as a huge amount of donation, giveaway or anything else.

                              for example, the broadcaster select 1 of the viewer, left click the name and it will give an option to contact the viewer directly (webcam+voice chat) something like that.

                              • Increasing the personal experience by empathizing the addressed guests by voice/camera/moderators:

                                as a new user of twitch I am troubled to follow up the chat messages and the response of broadcaster. I would suggest to empathize the guest messages to wich the broadcaster has replied.

                                Motivation:
                                For me, the basis and main difference to Twitch compared with other services is personal interaction and an ongoing, increasing relationship between the artist (broadcaster) and the guests. So the goal should be, to use technology to form a stronger bond between this individuals.

                                Addressing messages by:
                                Moderators: Give them the ability to tag those messages

                                • Have sub birthday badges

                                  It might be a nice feature to display a birthday badge (a birthday cake or candles or something) against your name in a broadcaster's chat when you are subscribed to them and it is your birthday.
                                  This could be another fun little way to facilitate subscriber and broadcaster interaction.
                                  It may need an opt-in checkbox on your profile in case you don't want anyone knowing your birthday.

                                  • Get rid of the "fanciful" progress bar that has an animation every time you skip ahead or rewind.

                                    When viewing a video in a desktop/laptop browser and you're skipping forward or rewinding the progress bar does a little fancy animation. It's completely pointless and in fact annoying. It varies in severity depending on what you do. Skipping forward does a small animation where the bar goes back a little and then fills up again to where you skipped to, when you click a few minutes ahead the animation can be longer, etc. The issue is that when searching for a specific point in a video I have to wait for the animation to finish every time I've clicked…

                                    • Create a Charity raffle where the prizes are to play games with popular streamers

                                      I think a lot of viewers would love to play a game teamed up with their favorite streamer or get the chance to hunt them down in game. Perhaps there could be a raffle for various spots for various games. IE, it could be team games where you team up with a streamer or a battle-royal type game, or something completely silly. I think if you sold the raffle tickets for a fair amount you could raise a lot of money for charity as well as provide a fun experience for twitch viewers.

                                      • Make Bit Ads be available to everyone not just 10% of the community

                                        Right now barely 10% percent of the people have that option to watch bit ads and actually support there favorite streamers instead of just buying bits. Please make this possible

                                        • 18+ only cam girl gamer section

                                          Please add an 18+ restricted section of twitch where cam girls can play games and do Adult Only stuff.

                                          Currently, not many cam sites allow games on stream. This could be a great way to allow both twitch and cam girls to make a lot of money from OhMyBod vibrator shows where viewers attempt to disable the cam girl during a game.

                                          If cam sites are unwilling to make money from games, maybe twitch could make money from cam girls.
