  1. Currently Low Latency mode supports Chrome and Firefox on desktop, which are two of the top three most popular web browsers.

    This idea is to propose expanding this capability to a wider array of browsers, namely beginning with Chromium based web browsers e.g. Brave, Microsoft Edge, Vivaldi etc. since these already have close compatibility with the existing Chrome framework. As well as additional large market share browsers such as Safari and Opera.

  2. Allow us to set the buffer on a per stream basis, say to 6.33s. The video player would slightly speed up or slow down to compensate. Since the buffer fluctuates constantly, maybe over a 5 second average.

    This would be useful mainly for syncing multiple streams and keeping them in sync.

    I know this is already possible and very straight forward since the player already speeds up high delay streams. It simply needs to read the current buffer and adjust accordingly.

    This is such an easy thing to implement and would reduce the frustration of out of sync streams completely.

  3. After a network disruption from another bandwidth-intensive application,(s) please allow the error #2000 message to retain the video's progress via cookie when logged-out.

    I have concerns about open sessions of my accounts on multiple domains where my active sessions are not displayed and able to be manually closed. (Google, Twitter, Instagram, and Microsoft all display active session history)

    Thank you for your consideration.

  4. Similarly to what YouTube does, I'd like to see an option to watch a 16:10 content without the black bars. Either auto-switch or manually.
    There are a lot of us who have such monitors and having to play windowed or at full-screen mode at lower resolution only to avoid the side black bars on Twitch, is not comfortable.
    Cheers!

  5. It is confusing and unclear for users that hot keys in twitch player only work with english layout. Please make it layout independent.

  6. When in dark mode and the streamer disconnects I am blasted with the White and purple disconnect image. Make a version that detects if I have dark mode enable IE grey or black and purple so I don't lose my eyes when a sudden flash of white light burns my retinas.

  7. In Theatre Mode when the chat is pushed off the screen by clicking the arrow, the player doesn't stretch to the bottom of the browser leaving a bit of black space at the bottom. Why not stretch the player all the way down to the bottom of the browser?

  8. I really like the 'Pause Chat' feature. But the overlay indicator message that says that chat is currently paused, although already changed a bit, is still covering the last message / chatter name. So we can neither click the name nor click all the mod icons (at least when timestamps are on).
    Of course this is only a problem when chat is slow, but turning the entire feature on and off depending on peaks is quite impractical.

    I would propose that this indicator shows up as the background of the chatbox. In a way that we could still type messages…

  9. I frequently get micro delays while viewing streams and end up delayed by up to 30s + before I become aware of it due to watching chat delay. The worst I've seen personaly is about 60s before I refreshed.

    Add a way to auto mate catching up to live stream with x seconds by skipping frames and accelerating stream playback until live or within chosen setting.

  10. It's extremely annoying to have videos and streams that haven't been specifically selected to just start playing when accessing the site home page or visiting a channel.
    Add an EASY TO LOCATE toggle so these auto play options are PERMANENTY disabled.

    I come here to watch what I CHOOSE to watch, and NOT what ever garbage you want to pollute my eyes and ears with.

  11. Az elmúlt időszakban használhatatlan a platform, akármilyen adatsebességgel is próbálok a platformon tartalmat fogyasztani, legyen az mobil vagy teljesen más szolgáltatótól származó optikán érkező vonal, az ádásokat csak 360p és az alatti minőségben alacsony késletetést kikapcsolva válok nézhetővé, de amúgy ahhoz is gratulálnék, hogy a probléma jelentéshez külön regisztrálni kell máshol.

  12. Every time an ad loads, the site locks and I can't watch a stream. Every time I watch a stream at anything more than 480p, it pauses and buffers for no reason. This doesn't happen on any other platform that does livestreaming.

    I frankly think it's ridiculous that my PC can run DOOM Eternal at 100+fps on max settings but I can't watch a livestream at full resolution without constantly missing out on what's going on because of buffering issues.

    My Internet speed is more than adequate, and my hardware is well above what should be the minimum required. It…

  13. Vivo en una zona rural y las compañías restringen mi acceso a plataformas como la suya en las que soy usuario, mediante la limitación de datos por consumos que ellos consideran indebidos. Comprar juegos, ver series en Amazon prime, consumir Twitch, es para las compañías de mi país un uso indebido de la red. Sería importante su apoyo en nuestra relación con las operadoras, que entiendan la realidad del consumo de datos de un usuario medio que consume todos estos datos legalmente y muchas veces pagando por es contenido.

  15. It is super annoying when the stream I watching stops after every 10 seconds on 1080p. I have to watch it on 720p. It is just twitch. No other site has this problem on internet speed I have, I even watch 4k videos on youtube.

  16. H265 is much better on the newer RX 6k AMD GPUs please add this and maybe a 10k bitrate for 1080p streams. 6-8k is just not enuf and H264 is outdated and looks bad on AMD GPUs.

  17. Bug report:

    Context: I'm fullscreen on MacOS Safari, on a Twitch stream.

    The Bug: Periodically, the playback controls UI, including the progress bar, appear without any user interaction. They should stay invisible unless I move my mouse.

    The cause: That chat window seems to instigate this issue. If I go out of fullscreen mode, and hide the chat view, and go back to fullscreen, the issue no longer occurs.

  18. I think that a good function would be to set the quality of the stream watched on the Twitch.pl website, as is the solution on the Twitch application. A good idea would be an application for a lubricant.TV Samsung
