  1. 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 ?

            • The ad is way too loud comparing to the volume I set for the stream

              The ad is way too LOUD comparing to the volume I set for the stream
              I think it wouldn't be a problem to balance the volume between the stream and ads
              Hope I don't need to be scared anymore soon.

              • Samsung Smart TV application

                I think it's about time you start the development of an application for the smart tv market. There are plenty of users who want to watch a stream on their tv so they can do something else on the computer (without using the computer to send the video to the tv).
                If you are already working on it, well done and move faster !! :))

                • If I can't skip ads, I wont watch twitch. Period. If refreshing the page doesn't bypass the ad, I'll simply close the tab.

                  Most of the time, I'll open a stream and watch 5-15 seconds of it just to get a sense of if I want to watch it. I might go through 6 or 7 channels before picking one to watch. If I have to sit through a 30 second ad just to immediately decide I don't want to watch that particular stream, then it's not worth using the site at all.

                  • 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!

                    • Fix for vod pausing, fullscreen the vod and alt tab to another window

                      Fix for vod pausing, fullscreen the vod and alt tab to another window.

                      Worked for me, found by googling.
                      Perhaps twitch coders can find a workaround with testing?

                      • 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.

                          • Premier Function when uploading a new Video

                            As a new Affiliate, I would like to upload a video without the video taking up time on my stream so that I cannot stream when I want to. Also, the video premier takes away from my "active" stream time as far as concurrent viewers during my entire stream day when I look at my stats. It includes the entire time my channel had something going on and drops my average views. It's very discouraging.

                            • export all VODs to youtube, where they'll be watchable

                              i'm seeing that quite a few other people are also having serious problems with VODs stuttering to the point of being unwatchable. twitch is owned by one of the largest companies of the world with infinite resources. there's no excuse for being so bad at something that the rest of the internet had on lock like 14 years ago, especially when video is the entire reason for your existence. or just let me download them so i don't have to deal with your awful vod service.

                                you want your site to have more users? so provide more servers instead of adding useless things to your site.

                                  • Separate Audio Volume for streaming/videos and calls

                                    You should include two different speaker level bars:
                                    1. For calls/videocalls audio volume
                                    2. For twitch streaming channels/videos audio volume
                                    So onceyou have perfectly adjusted the volume for hearing your gaming mates perfectly without high level distortions, you don't need to readjust any volume to avoid hurting your ears (there is a high gain difference between both volumes).
                                    You would only need to set it once at settings menu as the other sound options.
