  1. Disable 160p

    I can't speak for everyone, but 160p is by far the worst looking, and sounding, quality. For those with terrible internet speeds, that's fine, but I'm totally fine with my video 30 seconds behind the streamer over this terrible quality that's coming in regardless of what quality I put it at (as it automatically downgrades to 160p if it can't handle it, heavens forbid we put you 15 seconds behind the streamer). I just want the ability to tell twitch on my side, once and for all, NO 160P QUALITY FOR ME.

    • Allow non-partnered streams access to low quality setting transcode

      Allow non-partnered streams access to lowest quality setting transcode (160p) or (360p) to allow a broader range of possible viewers.

      As someone who enjoys some of the non-partnered streams with low viewer counts, having low quality internet (thanks Australia) makes it hard to view streams that wish to broadcast quality streams i.e. hq video feed (720p+).
      I believe this limits the growth potential of such streamers who are not able to cater to certain users of twitch because of internet issues that the streamer isn't able to cater to without downgrading for other people.

      It would be nice to see…

      • Add option to disable autoplay for the viewer

        Please add an option to disable autoplay for the viewer. This way those who want it can still have it but those of us who don't want it can turn it off. Thank you!

        • Twitch Video Kalite Seçeneği

          Twitch iştirak programındayım, 720p yayın veriyorum ancak bazı günler yayın açtığımda video kalite seçeneği varken bazı günler yayına geçtiğimde video kalite seçeneği olmuyor. bu gerçekten can sıkıcı hale geldi. nedir problem acaba ?

            • limit quality options to 3, min, 480p/720p, max

              this would allow video quality options to spread out more evenly rather than just the 5 100K streamers. i would prefer either, but if 720p was reserved as the middle man for anything above 1080p that'd be great thanks!

              • Twitch buffering every 20 secs but adverts play perfectly 1080px every few minutes

                Adverts play perfectly in HD infuriatingly often during the stuttering 160px playback but videos are unwatchable because of buffering and lag issues - why not put the Twitch content on the same servers as the adverts then none of us would have such appalling playback.

                • Fix the buffering and quality management! Streams are down right unwatchable.

                  Streams buffer every second and you watch more of a buffer circle than stream! My internet and computer are far too good to not be able to even watch a stream without buffer in high quality let alone ANY quality. I used to watch twitch everyday now I can't watch ANY anymore! Fix your platform.

                  • The video pauses alone from time to time

                    The video pauses alone from time to time. I really dont know why, It does not have a pattern. I have to press F5 a couple times until it stops.

                                      • Does twitch even read these? So many buffering reports and no fixes.

                                        Netflix and youtube work flawlessly, steam downloads at top speed (60mbps), but I can't watch twitch at source (6mbps) with nothing taking any of my bandwidth.

                                        • Higher timer before going up in quality on auto

                                          My internet is not that bad, but it spikes alot, so i tend to watch on medium to high. But with this autosetting, when i dont have spikes for 15 seconds it gives Source quality and instantly after fist spikes it goes into buffer and sometimes it even loads ad after buffering
