  1. 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. 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.

  4. Turbo Subscribes Should have the Rights Access to stream/save highlights in 1080p or Higher. NOT lower the rate, Because others have low internet ? what about the ones that pay for High internet and We get tossed back? Come on now We are in the Future with 4k and Ultra HD and 5g + nearly on all platforms from Cable to fiber optics, Cellphone,online stream video services/music. its time for keeping up with the world. We are paying for Better services . Please Honor this service otherwise why pay for High benefits if We get lower standards? I See Twitch…

  5. 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,…

  6. We understand that broadcasting at higher bit rates costs Twitch more money, so why not enable it as a paid feature, such as for Twitch turbo subscribers?

  7. 1080p in 2023 is a tad dated given the advancement in panel resolution standards and accessibility, coupled with the widespread availability high bandwidth internet connectivity - An option to stream at 1440p 60fps would be great. It'll be playable and crisp on a 4k display without looking too grainy, and streams will be most crisp for all using 1440p displays (I don't have any 1080p displays and my viewing experience is unimpressive as this doesn't upscale as well). Details and clarity are important when viewing competitive esports content.

  8. Streams that are in 1440p resolution doesn't have option to select 1080p quality.

    This affect devices with 1080p resolution because they have left with 720p as max resolution to watch.

    It would very nice if there is 1080p quality for 1440p streams

  10. South Korea's Twitch community has seen rates on Amazon Web Services' IVS reduced by up to 50% since August 1, 2023. And
    Users in Korea will not be able to create and upload new VOD content, which will likely reduce network rates.

    Since live channels in Korea have decreased a lot compared to last year, I think the network fee has decreased compared to last year.

    Please increase the display advertisement to 60 seconds instead of 30 seconds by adopting it as an interim advertisement

  11. can you at least give small creators who don't have an affiliation to have an option for their viewers to choose which quality they want to watch, and at least provide us with an 8000-bit rate to 12000-bit rate this is because when we clip our own stream to provide more awareness, the video quality is really bad. So I hope someday it would change the system in the future.

  12. Honestly, I don’t know what exactly needs to be done, but twitch, unlike the same YouTube, always lacks Internet speed. I watch streams via wifi. Through the Windows task manager, I often see that twitch consumes over 20 Mbps and uses 70% of my processor. At peak moments of using the Internet, streams and recordings of streams do not freeze, but the speed constantly increases from 0 to 20 Mbps and falls back, at times when it is below 10 Mbps or I open even the usual "new tab" in Google stream or its RECORDING (it's like a regular YouTube…

  14. If a small streamer reaches 3 of the 4 "Path To Affiliate" Achievements/Requirements that should make all the Video Quality options (240p,360p,480p,720p) etc be available the next time the streamer goes live. That way if the streamer is putting in the time, work, effort to grow, they have a better chance of gaining followers that will lead them to Partner status. At this rate all starting smaller streamers and streamers that haven't yet reached Partner are forced to mulitstream just so we have viewable options for viewers on low bandwidth internet and 4G / 5G connections. I feel like "Path…

  15. Additionally, it should NEVER choose any other quality than the last selected. It is utterly annoying having to change quality, reload the page and then make sure the quality doesn't change on it's own, before getting to watch streams.

  16. As the streaming industry embraces new technology, alongside increased internet speed standards, I would love for Twitch to adopt full transcoding for all active streamers as well as an increase in the bitrate cap to 10k.

    The current issue with the 6k bitrate cap for non-partners is inherently-lowered viewer experience. Viewers are consistently looking for superior quality streams as the first impression of long-term engagement and retention, which the current 6k bitrate cap severely inhibits due to automatic pixelation for high-movement games such as FPS. Since partners have the automatic 8-8.5k bitrate cap increase, this gives partnered content creators an…

  17. to decrease the overall bandwidth cost

    You could increase the bitrate for partners at 15000
    keep the same limit of bitrate for the affiliate at 8000

    and for a new channel put it at 15000 for a limited time (in condition to have regular viewership and people talking in chat)

    and having regular viewer being able to boost the channel popularity with channel points was also really good !

    you also can reduce the maximum quality for new streamers to 720p 30fps
    and unlock the vod feature only for affiliate and partners but propose to link a youtube account for…

  18. Korean users are using ttv lol to watch in 1080p quality.

    Other users bypass it and watch it in 1080p quality, but I don't know why the 720p limit was set.

  19. Twtich server upgrade so also more bitrate upload and users pay a small pocket money for this :)

    You know it from server hosters "You want more upload or more storage, then rent at Twitch-Turbo the server package" For +5,90$ or 9,90$ you can upload and stream up to 13K/ 15K.
    So Twitch would have less problems with the costs and who does not want to pay such a server upgrade remains with Free and 6-8K upload depending on Twitch contract.

    Possible would be this Year, because it's time for an Upgrade at Twitch :)

    • Higher Bitrate: (Above 10.000, with video quality selector can be managed so if someone won't use that high download usage, he can tweak it), we still have a really low bitrate, and that force us try to tweak OBS to reach higher quality with lower CPU encoding speed. Still this is not a miracle, and 6000 bitrate is so limited (even if there is a trick to go beyond and reach 8000 bitrate).

    • HDR: OBS doesn't support because it's not worth it nowadays since Twitch is not supporting it, but other platforms are starting to give a hint to this…
