Video Performance

  1. Improve playback image quality

    The image quality of the video on Twitch's site often comes nowhere near the image quality of the video I uploaded. This is especially noticeable in scenes with fast motion. For comparison:

  3. Ads are too loud + Same ads over and over again.

    Could it be made, that after 10 views, you can skip, like it is possible with so many other ads?

    Thanks in advance!

  4. Stream vodcasts unmuted, or provide better tools for dealing with muted vodcasts

    I've been uploading old vods for the purpose of vodcasting on a channel I'm editor for for the last week, and long muted sections have been a recurring problem. It takes hours to upload and process a vod, just to find out that long sections are muted and there's nothing I can do about them at vodcast time.

    Some suggestions
    1. When vods are vodcasted, play them unmuted (since they aren't archived anyway and are essentially canned live broadcasts)
    2. Allow a way to quickly remove muted sections from a vod
    3. Provide editors the ability to fast-forward through vods…

    Agreed that the muting experience is not ideal right now. We will look into this, but lots of things to build and improve for Twitch VODs.

  6. Ads unmute themselves when on a muted stream

    Muting a player on an ad break effectively only lasts for the first ad, as subsequent ads unmute themselves and play audio even though the player says it's muted. This has been an issue with increasing frequency in the last couple months, but has been an issue since the switch to the html5 player and an issue with several earlier iterations of the flash player.

    It's also worth noting that the first time I clicked the pop up to come here after reporting the ad, it paused the ad and opened its link instead of redirecting here. That's gross.

  8. Allow going fullscreen by double-clicking (why was this disabled?)

    Somehow toggling fullscreen by doubleclick doesn't working anymore?

  10. Player freezes browser because of script bug

    In the last week or so, after watching a stream for some time, clicking to a new tab in the same browser (current Firefox on Windows 10) lags, enough for windows to show it as not responding, and then resumes without having changed tabs.

    After long enough, these shorter lags switching tabs fully hangs, and firefox asks if you want to cancel the execution of the script, and if you do, the video just never loads again. A refresh of the page fixes this, but it's damn annoying and wasn't a problem before recently.

  14. Make the vods not suck

    Every once in a while some vods just don't work. They go black and never start. Which ruins any stream that have more than one vod.

  16. Samsung Smart TV application

    I think it's about time you start the development of an application for the smart tv market. There are plenty of users who want to watch a stream on their tv so they can do something else on the computer (without using the computer to send the video to the tv).
    If you are already working on it, well done and move faster !! :))

  18. Buffering

    EVERY stream buffers constantly and sometimes will not load at all. Chat works but the stream will not. It's been happening about a month. Come on guys.

  19. Does twitch even read these? So many buffering reports and no fixes.

    Netflix and youtube work flawlessly, steam downloads at top speed (60mbps), but I can't watch twitch at source (6mbps) with nothing taking any of my bandwidth.

  20. Blank ads causes stream with no sound.

    So everytime i try to catch a championship game here on twitch, an ad tries to roll out, but since its so retarded in the first place it cant even play itself. the stream then returns with no sound.. refreshing alot does not even help (100 times, literally wtf, are you that hungry?)

    youtube sure is becoming more and more cozy :)
