    • 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.

              • ads are too loud and play every time i have to reload a page

                it's illegal for cable companies to play ads that are louder than the aired shows so why is it ok for twitch to do it? Whether they can or not, it's just rude to viewers. Let me just say I don't mind ads, i like supporting twitch and the streamers but when they are so loud it wakes up other people in another room thats just unethical for twitch to do. I have repeatedly "left feedback" that the video ad is too loud and (in some cases with Gears of War 4 for example) was unable to mute. Is it…

                    • Stop spamming me with ads when I have to fucking reload the page

                      ... because your stream stopped and will never RECONNECT unless I refresh the page, and when I do you fucking hit me with an ad again... and again... and again. Worst, it's always the same fucking add!

                      I can't report the real problem. So I'm reporting the real problem here. It's not the ad is the same, it's that you obviously can fucking tell I'm still same person, still have me as logged in when I refresh. So you can obviously fucking tell I just watched you fucking add a minute ago!

                        Some ads cant be skipped, im okay with that. but when it suddenly screams in my headphones i guess i am forced to use adblock

                          • 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

                                  • Investigate and solve video + audio stuttering when playing on a secondary monitor running at a different refresh rate to the primary one

                                    Playing some 60fps streams on second monitor (running at 60hz) causes the playback to stutter, both audio and video. Plays fine on primary monitor running at 144hz.

                                    • The video keeps on buffering!

                                      It can't be my internet if the same stream works just fine on YouTube! The difference is, YouTube's chat is disabled, and YouTube stream is slightly behind Twitch chat, so the chat is always telling me what I'm about to see before I see it, and that's annoying! Could be fixed if Twitch wasn't a pile of crap!
                                      I changed the quality to MOBILE by the way. I can't see a thing and it keeps on buffering, STILL!

                                        Somehow toggling fullscreen by doubleclick doesn't working anymore?

                                        • Player freezes browser because of script bug

                                          In the last week or so, after watching a stream for some time, clicking to a new tab in the same browser (current Firefox on Windows 10) lags, enough for windows to show it as not responding, and then resumes without having changed tabs.

                                          After long enough, these shorter lags switching tabs fully hangs, and firefox asks if you want to cancel the execution of the script, and if you do, the video just never loads again. A refresh of the page fixes this, but it's damn annoying and wasn't a problem before recently.
