  1. 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.

  2. currently the bitrate limit is 6k which isnt enough for 1440p streams
    while on youtube they allow streams at higher bitrates at 1440p

  3. There's frankly no excuse for Twitch to not provide transcodes readily for all streams in the Year of Our Lord 2022. This is arguably the world's biggest streaming site; they obviously have the resources, yet they refuse to use them. It doesn't help that buffering issues on the site have been record-breakingly bad over the past two weeks or so. Transcodes would at the very least alleviate them in that watching a stream at a lower quality (such as 360p) has a chance to make the watching experience much less of a bufferfest.

  4. Bitrate is a funny little thing. When a stream pushes the limit of the bitrate selected in OBS/Xplit (due to high resolution/framerate/visual effects), artifacting occurs, and the stream will appear distorted (pixelated? mosaic-y?).

    On Twitch, the current maximum upload bitrate is stated to be 6000 kbps, with a hard cut-off a bit above that number. From what I understand, this is to keep server costs at a reasonable level, and to maintain a smooth viewing experience on channels without transcoding.

    That said, YouTube, a platform mainly focused on hosting pre-recorded and edited content, encourages streamers to stream to their website…

  5. 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 :)

  6. For people with bad internet, I would like these users to be able to see the affiliate streams at a lower resolution or at least 30 fps, that way apart from helping people with bad connection it also helps the streamer to be known without that quality barrier.

  7. A stream does not require 60FPS playback. Ever. It's a complete waste of bandwidth and should not even be an option. For people like me that have slower internet it makes it impossible to watch a lot of streamers. Many streamers don't even realize that they're streaming at 60 FPS and how it literally DOUBLES the bandwidth requirements but does not give any benefit to the quality of the stream. I wish Twitch would make the default 720p 30 FPS and allow some users to increase to 1080p 30FPS once they reach partner or something. Not only would this decrease…

  8. Since I only stream for 4 hours a week, I'll never see Partner in my future. However as an affiliate, we are not always guaranteed a transcodeable stream. I know I have viewers that can not even handle the 720P stream I'm pushing, but I don't want to bump my overall stream setting down for 2-3 viewers, leaving the other 100 with a lesser experience. Since I'm not in this for monetizing, I would welcome the ability to "purchase" the ability to transcode my streams with guaranteed ability like Partners have.

  9. I find myself becoming ineffective as a Mod when my buffer slips to 20 and 30 seconds long. Any time the stream from the channels I mod gets laggy I find myself seriously behind Real Time. While reloading the page can help with this, every time I do I miss large chunks of stream time, possibly missing relevant contextual information for knowing when to Allow or Override the AutoMod. (When AutoMod catches the message "Oh look, its Captain D i c k!" it's relevant for me to quickly know that a man named D i c k was just introduced…

  10. Make the adaptive bitrate streaming work such that non focused players reduce the stream to audio only.
    For mobile applications which are SPAs this would translate into background (that is not picture-in-picture) and foreground (or picture-in-picture)

  11. I've been streaming for a year now, and still don't know what settings I'm able to use as someone that isn't affiliated. Can I stream at 1080p, or will it not downscale? etc. Once I get affiliated does anything change? or do I have to wait until I'm a partner? It's really vague and ur current setting site just doesn't help.

  12. Sometimes I find myself in a place or location where my internet connection isn't great, I'm sure I'm not alone and it doesn't make sense that you can't reduce the resolution. Why is this even a restriction? I want to support and enjoy certain smaller streamers and find myself not being able to for this reason

  13. 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.

  14. Many times I was unable to see the Streams of some affiliates and non affiliates because their stream quality was only at source and the different stream quality option is readily available for Partners only. While affiliates and non-affiliates have to restart their stream sometimes quite a few times to get the option. I feel like this further decreases their visibility and growth because many people with not so good Internet are unable to watch them in Source quality. I am not a Streamer so I am saying this solely as a Viewer's experience on Twitch. I'd be really glad…

  15. Adding transcoding options for streamers, departed by tiers as in

    Tier 1 Non-affiliated, affiliated but non-partnered, transcoding up to 720p h.264

    Tier 2 Affiliated transcoding up 1080p h.264

    Tier 3 Partnered transcoding up ton 1440p with higher scaled upload bandwith, utilizing h.265 or HVEC

  16. Guys during livestreams there are often bandwidth issues, so basically you have to accept really ****** quality & interrupts to stay live. For some events though I totally would not mind being 10 minute delayed or so in order to have the stream preloaded and available in good quality and sacrificing real time. Such a feature would be great. Also when rewatching videos - the download should continue when the pause button is pressed or should not reload when you jump back in time - it is a pitty that you can't really watch high quality videos, because the player…

  17. 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…

  19. This is already a feature on Chrome but I don't see it working on Firefox.

    On Chrome, when you have a stream playing in another tab and that tab is not focused for some time, the video quality is automatically reduced to save bandwidth and when you go back to the stream tab, the quality goes back to normal.

    This doesn't happen on Firefox though. It might be a browser limitation but it would be great if the Twitch folks took a look at this.

    Firefox users deserve dynamic quality switch too :)
