  1. https://www.twitch.tv/zfg1 frequently has an error where everyone watching on desktop/web has to manually refresh the stream. He says he is running the latest version of OBS, and his chat says this happens to his stream more frequently than others (about once per 20/30 minutes).

  2. We need serious attention done to this error which is causing problems for so many small-time streamers who do not have the resources or knowledge to find out why this error appears. This is one of the most persistent and problematic errors that MUST be addressed by Twitch in a real SERIOUS way!

  3. Whenever I alt-tab or switch tabs on Chrome (Win7 x64) I get a 30 second disconnect with a purple screen telling me to watch from twitch.tv
    For example, if I have two streams open, the one which isn't focused will get intermittent disconnects. My browser is updated.

  4. If I go to one channel and from that channel go to another, I seem to not have video quality better than 360p unless I refresh the browser. Its been happening for 3-4 days now.

  6. When streaming VODs at 1080p (perhaps more, my TV is 1080p) after about 1-2 minutes, the stream will stop and load indefinitely. This happens on my Chromecast Ultra and Chromecast v2/v1.

  8. The past 2 or 3 nights my streams have been ending and restarting throughout the stream. It's not a bandwidth thing on my end because I have 100Mbps download and 18 Mbps upload speed. Please help

  9. Every time I stream on the Xbox series x, the stream becomes pixelated every time I make fast movements or some times for no reason. Please fix this issue.

  11. You should provide more quality options for the smaller Twitch channels as well as non-partnered channels. Right now, you can only have more quality options if you are a streamer with a high amount of viewers or a Twitch Partner. This means that the quality is stuck on "Source" and cannot be altered whatsoever. This needs to be changed. I am on a Chromebook and I can't watch a whole 1080p60/30 or 720p60/30 quality stream without the stream constantly buffering every few seconds. When it stops buffering, it 'plays' the stream for about a few more seconds before it starts…

  12. Twitch video seems to be decoding on my 3D cores and video decode consecutively. AMD Radeon VII. This is a problem beginning in the middle part of this year 2020. While playing Scar Citizen load seems to begin shifting between the 3D cores and video decode. Video decode should never touch my 3D cores or I should have an option in my settings to set stream decoding to "Video decode only!" Performance was perfect before now streams are prone to studders and freezing when my GPU is under heavy load.

  14. Sometimes when using the play/pause media key on my keyboard to restart playback on a paused video, the video will play but the large play button (the triangle in a circle in the center of the video) with the semi-opaque gray overlay will remain on the screen. Clicking on this button removes the overlay, but completely negates the ease of using the media keys.

    I am using the latest version of Chrome, though this issue has persisted for several versions now.

  19. hi I can't seem to get all the video collections to load on channels I'm subscribed to like Critical Role for example. I know they have a video collection for campaign two but I can't get more then 4 collections to load and campaign 2 is not one of them. Same is true for geek and sundry, wednesday club. Also this seems to be a website/desktop(pc) issue I think because I can get the collections to load no problem on my android twitch app, so what is going on?

  20. Audio sounds bugged/ distorted while watching in low latency on browser. I've tested it on Brave browser and Opera. It seems to fix if you toggle it on and off.
