  1. 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)

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  5. 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 :)

  6. increase the binary rate to have videos in 4K, current technology allows it and it would be necessary to evolve with the new sources and not to limit oneself to 1080p

  7. Make the automatically minimized player (when you go from a Channel to a Category) resizable. By default it's 200px x 117.5px in size, in-resizeable. Make it resizable. By allowing to drag it from the top right corner.
    Set a max size as well. For example 640x320.

  8. Give a possibility to low internet speed, who can't watch source, to watch little streamers who don't have video quality selection.

  9. Some of us have websites- eCom stores, information websites, etc. I have a PC hardware review website and would like to wish to integrate it just like Youtube. I wish Twitch had the tools that worked.

    Twitch has embed code separately for viewing and chat. But it's rather a general code that has fixed width and height. You'd think a big platform like Twitch would have an official WordPress plugin with a responsive design. Also, plugins have better compatibility with WordPress.

    There are plugins for Twitch, but they have long been discontinued. There are so many websites out there that…

  10. The video quality other than the (Source), the quality is really bad.

    The source is: (720p 60fps) avc1.640020,mp4a.40. than is really good
    If I switch to (720p 60fps) (Non Source) avc1.4D401F,mp4a.40.2 the quality is really bad and the same for others

  12. I would be happy in the future if the server capacity in Berlin, Kiel, Bremen, Rostock and Hamburg is increased, as there are increasing problems with the video output of the streams!

  13. I understand partner is supposed to give benefits that others don't have, but it is difficult to get anywhere when the stream quality is stuck so high because the viewers can't watch the stream with their internet. In my opinion it's not a benefit, it's unfair. This would not just bring in more streamers and viewers, but benefit them and Twitch.

  14. Nach viel ausprobieren habe ich endlich die Lösung gefunden, Codec von AMD kommt bei Twitch mit 60 FPS es nicht klar somit überlastet die Software und man kann nicht mehr Streamen, also lieber auf 30 FPS oder gleich x264 Codec verwendet. Also, wenn ihr auch dieses Problem habt, hoffe konnte euch helfen.

  16. this has been ongoing since i joined and streamed on twitch, the servers need to be vastly improved on website, every stream i watch or try to stream to platform keeps lagging/crashing and auto tunes to 160p. i keep getting random errors ranging from unable to decod or not available on browser. i have tried many browsers and this happens on all. microsoft edge it the worst.

    this is riduculus that this has not been addressed for so long.

  17. My English is not very good. So I use Google Translate.

    I am a live broadcaster in Taiwan, and I would like to suggest that the live broadcaster can pay to purchase a channel that allows viewers to adjust the picture quality.

    Everyone knows that the platform provides a function that allows viewers to adjust the picture quality. It is given priority to the live partners according to the quota, and then to the live allies if there is excess quota, and finally to the general live host.

    However, except for the peak time, as long as there is a…

  19. I know we already have a few servers in Germany, but wouldn't it be better to have another server in Hamburg to provide an alternative server for Denmark, as the servers are a bit far away from Norway and Sweden, then I think we have a good server structure in Germany to provide an alternative for other countries.

  20. I think that a good function would be to set the quality of the stream watched on the Twitch.pl website, as is the solution on the Twitch application. A good idea would be an application for a lubricant.TV Samsung
