Change chat playback in VODs
A streamer can have connection issues and can reconnect in a minute or so. This works on stream, but in VODs it causes an issue with the timing with chat and the VOD. This causes the chat to be delayed by the amount of time the connection was lost. This leaves chat's response to be delayed which becomes annoying if the disconnect was at the beginning of a nine hour stream. I believe a solution would be able to have the chat's playback separate from the VOD's playback. This allows the user to adjust the chat's response time in order to match up with what is going on with the VOD's playback. It's not a perfect solution, but I would appreciate it since I mainly watch VODs.
Twitch, why are you so incompetent? can't you fix this issue that has been on twitch for a very long time now? Fix it your site!
This might be a bump, but yes, VOD disconnection desync / chat delay is still happening recently. Chat would be delayed one or two minutes after the relevant part of the video happened, thus confusing the VOD viewers.
Please fix this issue to improve the experience of the viewers; One of the solution would be by putting the full duration of 'NotLikeThis' temporary screen from the stream into the VODs.
pls twitch i wanna watch the stream with chat
For those who have this issue on xqc's stream, you can use his vod website https://xqc.wtf/ to watch the vod, it has a chat delay feature that helps with this problem, you just have to enter the delay in seconds manually in the input area.
Either give us the ability to change chat timing or keep the "NotLikeThis" screen in the vod
Feel like its gotten worse and worse lately. Chat is half the experience, and with 2 min delay the experience is ruined... Please fix this. xqcL
this needs to be fixed, i can't even properly watch a vod
this message is for google searches etc.:

ok but pls twitch fix this, it would make the vod experience a lot better <3
This needs to be fixed asap, it is really making it hard to watch back VODs, how can i watch the juicer XQC if the chat is delayed Sadge. A quick fix would be just to keep the whole 'notlikethis' screen from the vod or maybe just even split it into 2 vods when it happens.
I feel like you don't even need to add an extra feature for this (like an interface for adjusting delay), but rather just keep the entire "NotLikeThis"-screen length as part of the VOD. At least this would be a quick fix until something better exists. It feels like the reason for the VOD chat delay is because the "NotLikeThis"-screen length is edited down while chat is not.
The chat can be out of sync to the video in a VOD when there was a disconnect issue during the stream (the not like this screen), this can lead to a terrible experience for users as chat reaction are like a minute delayed. Could we get a fix to this or maybe even a slider to manually change the offset in chat (10 seconds ahead or like 20 seconds behind). thanks !
This got me confused a couple times as I watch lots of VOD's, and one particular streamer who uses mobile internet and has frequent short timeouts, often ends up answering chat messages several minutes before they even get posted.
Here is an example: https://youtu.be/EgBqeRxxvm0
He reads "A banana, cmon" at 03:32:40 into the stream, but the chat message only appears at 03:34:06
Great idea, it really ****** me off that sometimes I have to wait to se the correct response of chat, since it is mostly funny. Having it dealyed is really painful, so I really hope this idea will get more votes in the future.
