  1. AV1 encoding support should be a priority add to the website. AV1 encoding is a big improvement in visual quality to streams over CPU and GPU encoding options. Discord already added it, and I believe YouTube has it as well, it's very surprising to me that Twitch hasn't added this and there isn't even an ETA on it being added yet.

  2. At 11:00 (KST), I received a notification email that limit the video quality to 720p in Korea due to the network fee burden. Twitch should have informed Korean users at least a few weeks ago and had to come up with other alternatives. This is considered sufficiently discriminatory compared to global users. Please postpone these restrictions and come up with alternatives.

  3. While watching a stream if I leave a stream up for an extended amount of time I will sometimes come back to the video player ui having been frozen and unresponsive. I will hover over and click the player buttons without a response, additionally the hotkeys for the different player actions will also not work, spacebar for pausing and m for mute. I couldn't find anyone elses account on this issue.

    Sidenote - This is for live broadcasts in particular

  5. I want to save some traffic, when watching streams on a background, but stream unexpectedly change the resolution from 160p to 1080p60 on regular and low latency modes. It looks like a bug because when I open the tab again it changes the resolution back to 160p.

  7. On macOS Ventura/Sonoma (May affect earlier versions and is on Apple Silicon) using the latest stable build of Safari, after watching a Twitch stream for so long, it either pauses or brings up the error refresh button or I am forced to refresh the page as a whole.

    This has persisted over several formats of the entire system and seems to randomly happen with no consistency, it can happen every 5 minutes or even 60 seconds-ish or sometimes not happen at all although rare.

    I have tested this with and without extensions as well as enabling all Preview features in…

  8. Modify the algorithm so it stops tagging people for copyright infringement for songs that sampled things illegally on Youtube. I keep getting tagged during Ocarina Of Time because somebody on YouTube illegally sampled Saria's Song. I'm not alone, either. People have issues with Majora's Mask all the time. The VODs are unmuted very quickly, but it's annoying to deal with. I've contacted Nintendo, but obviously they don't care about stuff that small. Wondering why the Twitch algorithm does.

  9. I don't see any reason why it is not possible for some videos to decrease the streaming quality manually. If you are experiencing a poor mobile internet connection, you should be able to decrease the video quality to ensure smooth streaming without interruptions but in lower quality. (Should not happen automatically, should be available as an option in the stream settings (as it already is (but only sometimes for unknown reasons)))

  10. Your Android TV app is terrible. It's incredibly slow and can't pull a clean 1080p stream. It's fuzzy all the time. I have a Sony XBR55930e. Please fix.

  11. Twitch has currently END its business in Korea, Twitch does not have to pay network usage fees in Korea.
    Korean viewers (or viewers who visit Korea and use Twitch) were uncomfortable with the measures taken by Twitch Korea to reduce network usage fees (limiting broadcasts to 720P, disabling clips and replays).

    I hope Twitch puts an end to these measures because now they don't have to pay Korean carriers.

    Additionally, there are still many broadcasts outside of South Korea on Twitch, and there are still Korean users who want to enjoy them in NORMAL quality.

  16. Steps to reproduce:

    Open any stream in theater mode.
    Go to any button with an upward tooltip
    Hover over the above tooltip

  17. I really hate how I can no longer use Twitch. Ever since I moved, my internet has been too bad and the streamers I am interested in watching and supporting are not partnered. For some reason, despite the fact that competitors have found a way not to do this, Twitch feels the need to force me to stream in 1080p, a quality that I cannot watch. I can't stream anything anywhere in that quality and Twitch has no option for me to change it because it's locked behind the partner program or something like that. It's just such a weird…

  18. I am a Korean Twitch user.

    Not long ago, the maximum video quality for watching Twitch in Korea was fixed at 720p.

    I heard that the reason was that the cost of using the network in Korea was a burden to the operation.

    In addition, I understand that Korea's new network fee bill has made it even more burdensome.

    Koreans fully understand this and are opposed to Korea's additional network usage fee bill.

    As a result, there is a prevailing expectation that this bill will be difficult to pass due to opposition from the National Assembly even in Korea.

    Anyway,…

  19. I am watching https://www.twitch.tv/quin69 and randomly the video changed to another streamer https://www.twitch.tv/irunshibb twice while staying on the quin69 URL. To fix I need to refresh the page. I am not following irunshibb and I did not click on anything. This happened to me on 03/19/24 from 9am-12pm EST. It has not happened again since. I am using Chrome Version 122.0.6261.112.
