  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. I have a chrome extension installed that allows me to change the speed of any video I watch. Due to this, I can always see the speed of videos in the top left corner. I've noticed that any time a stream I'm watching lags or I fall too far behind live, Twitch will automatically change the speed of the stream from 1x to 1.03x speed. I believe this is a good idea and the change in speed is small enough to not affect the video. However, this speed change DOES affect the audio and in the case of music streams,…

  3. 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!

  4. 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…

  5. 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

  6. When watching a stream, especially in Low Latency mode, the stream pauses and buffers every now and again, usually first after just few minutes (despite 1 Gbit connection) and after a few of those, the audio and video fall out of sync, quite noticably.
    The fix is to either refresh the whole page (long way, losing chat) or toggle the Low Latency toggle off and on, which fixes it for some time.

  7. Error 2000 in my experience has been due to the Anti-tracking software I use. This makes the stream crash and quit playing. You need to refresh to get the stream going again. Usually this will cause an ad to play as soon as it is refreshed but not always in my experience. Anti-tracking software does not prevent other streaming websites to run smoothly for me, only Twitch. On my latest Twitch watching stint, my Anti-tracking software shows 13 advertising trackers blocked, 3 site analytics trackers blocked, and 0 essential trackers blocked. My Anti-tracking software states that essential trackers are critical…

  9. If I replay a VOD and want to pause it and watch something on another tab, even though I paused it, if I click to another browser tab, the VOD resumes within a few seconds. And so I have to click back to the VOD tab to pause it. And I can only do anything else if I close the twitch page, otherwise the VOD starts, which I would pause if I could.

  10. 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.

  11. 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)

  12. 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.

  13. I've noticed that Twitch seems to have a major garbage collection problem. I use Firefox (97.0.1 currently).

    Granted, I currently have 5 streams open with 4 of them tiled on my TV, however, the memory usage can be seen in excess of 10 GB.

    When I do manual garbage collection via about:memory?verbose, it can drop back down to about 2-3 GB total usage on the main process with 5 streams open.

    This sort of memory bloat only happens when I use Twitch. Firefox reports that the memory is under control (less than 1 GB total) in about:performance, but…

  14. 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.

  15. https://clips.twitch.tv/AlluringEnchantingPelicanTBCheesePull-9tVQWqbmsLcnEZLa
    At the start when he says 4 there's a pop

    https://clips.twitch.tv/OilyAmazonianOrcaNinjaGrumpy-W6l5wQ51eCbiwZIw (click or pop?noise when he says "Goddam..."
    Lowering the volume actually makes the click/pop clearer to hear for some reason.

    When he says container and miniscus.

    https://clips.twitch.tv/SlipperyDirtyEggUWot-V3PmqnAm7GMaNiAV
    Small pop left ear.

    https://clips.twitch.tv/EnergeticBenevolentElkHeyGirl-qlw5mDnkIa2c8pa2
    Similar small pop right ear.

    https://clips.twitch.tv/WanderingStormyPigeonAMPTropPunch-gqbvnmK1vW3XMvUz This one is pretty obvious.I think it's clipping?

    I can hear this on my pc with my headphones.I can also hear these on my phone with another pair of headphones.

    Is it just some coincidence that I happen to watch streamers who have these subtle/not so subtle audio issues…

  16. 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…

  18. Viewing live streams prompts an AntiVirus Warning that an embedded Security Certificate is currently expired. Warning reads: "attempted to establish a connection relying on an expired certificate to global.poe.live-video.net. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since websites must renew their certificates with a certification authority to stay current, and outdated security certificates represent a risk."

  19. This is more of a bug report rather than any sort of suggestion, but this seems like the most applicable place to post it.

    I was running into error #3000 frequently when watching a particular VOD, and eventually realized that the errors were not occurring randomly, but at specific time stamps in the video. One solution was to disable my chrome browser's hardware acceleration, but that resulted in heavy tearing on the video no matter what my vsync and other related settings were set to. Eventually, I found the solution in the form of using chrome://flags to explicitly either

  20. 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.
