  2. I can't watch anything on Twitch on my Apple devices (Mac, iPad, Apple TV) due to frequent audio/video desynchronisation, like (nearly) every time I try to watch something, and sometimes a several seconds difference between audio and video.

    And, for the record, Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+, Apple TV+ and YouTube (nearly) never exhibit this issue, I can only remember YouTube occasionally being slightly out-of-sync, like once every several hundred videos.

    Please fix!

  3. 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…

  4. When a vod has a muted section, the video often stops when changing between muted and unmuted sections. The video timer keeps running, but the audio/video is fozen. (firefox/windows)

  5. I am re-re-reposting this as you closed the ticket without addressing the issues I raised!

    1) Getting an increasing number of video playback cancelled error messages while watching twitch. - I have use the cog to report more times than I can count but the issue is not getting resolved!

    2) I would use the contact support feature but your bot is too stupid to understand me and sends me unrelated replies. - Not addressed!

    3) don't close open tickets until you have solved and address the issues, its plan rude and stops people up voting if they are having…

  6. Recently, Twitch Web(South Korea) has been updated to reduce video quality and sound quality when not maintaining watching.
    However, twitch streaming is not just for watching, but for watching and listening.
    Moving to other tab doesn't mean not listening.
    So, please don't lower the sound quality when moving to other tab in web-twitch

  7. Add the option for users to select which relay/ingest server to use( if they need to)
    This solves most if not all issues with dropped frames which are a result of bad routing, some countries (in my case South Africa) has really bad routing to Twitch servers and without using a local relay/ingest server we cannot stream anything above 480p30fps (without experiencing massive dropped frames which make the stream unbearable to watch) which is the only reason I cannot use Twitch Studio over other platforms right now.

  8. 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.

  9. 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,…

  10. 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.

  11. Here's an idea, get your **** to work properly, and provide customer support for when your worthless dogshit doesn't work. This error 2000 ******** has clearly been a TWITCH PROBLEM FOR YEARS, while you do nothing about it and can't even be bothered to provide even the most basic customer support to solve the issue. I have no further use for twitch, since it doesn't work and twitch staff can't be bothered to do anything about it.

  12. I have tested this bug thoroughly across many Xbox Consoles; If a live stream has a screen resolution of 1156p or 1440p, the app will immediately freeze and crash to the Home Screen for the Xbox Console.

  13. Allow all creators to remove all delays including the auto 6 second "stream-snipe" delay. There are instances where getting stream sniped are impossible ie: single player campaign modes and words on stream etc. As a creator myself I'm not worried about getting stream sniped. I'd rather the community and I experience all components of content at the same time. (I have OBS set to 0.5 second delay) I feel like I'm always one step ahead of the community and I really want us experiencing things at the same time.

  14. 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…

  15. Do NOT introduce P2P (peer to peer)!
    Do NOT continue with your testing of this in Korea or ANYWHERE!
    You will expose our IP Address's!
    You will expose us ALL to being hacked!
    You can not be this irresponsible!
    If you use P2P you will be putting EVERYONE at risk!
    This will be the end of Twitch.
    It only takes one successful hack!

  16. Currently, when viewing twitch.tv 1080p streams using Chrome on a Lenovo laptop that has a 3840x2400 display the stream looks fuzzy.

    Upon further inspection (via Settings -> Advanced -> Video Stats) I can see that the reported display resolution is 1280x800 (with a reported video resolution of 1920x1080).

    Note that I am able to play 4K60 videos on YouTube in another tab just fine (and I do not mind the small black bars above and below the videos).

  17. This issue has been going on for months now.

    Certain streams have been buffering until they are 8 - 10 seconds behind.
    It usually buffers 2 - 3 times, until the stream is 8 seconds behind, and then it runs with no more buffering.
    At first I thought it was just random streams, but after I posted about the issue on Reddit, someone pointed out that it's only happening on stream with less than ~100 viewers. Once a stream gets over 100 - 150 viewers, there's no more buffering.
    I usually watch stream with lower viewercounts, and interacting with the…

  18. I have all the right settings to record at 1080p 60fps, and even so the image continues to pixelate, I already lowered the resolution, I did everything and nothing changes. upload 170, pc i7 7geração gtx 1060 however I don't even play on pc with capture card via console and pc using streamlabs obs. I made all kinds of settings and nothing takes away the pixelation in the game images every time I move.

  19. Please actually update the android and iOS streaming to chromecast/device options. I'm watching a chill stream and its literally 240/360p for most of the time im sending to device even if they're standing completely still while grabbing a drink, its absolutely embarrassing a company of your size and supposed coding expertise can't figure out how to make "supported apps" run at a half decent resolution.
