  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. Please add African or South African servers. How are there multiple servers on every other continent, but not a single one on the African continent? Please, we beg you, add servers here.

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

  8. 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…

  9. For a lot of non-gaming content the doubling of bandwidth/vod size just isnt necessary, its the most economical way to stream or save broadcasts in a still acceptable quality. Removing it as an option while keeping 360 and 480 doesnt make sense (166 at least serves a purpose as a quasi-audio only option)

  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. Bug report:

    Context: I'm fullscreen on MacOS Safari, on a Twitch stream.

    The Bug: Periodically, the playback controls UI, including the progress bar, appear without any user interaction. They should stay invisible unless I move my mouse.

    The cause: That chat window seems to instigate this issue. If I go out of fullscreen mode, and hide the chat view, and go back to fullscreen, the issue no longer occurs.

  14. Hi, it's about time to move forward, i can see we have the ability to stream in 1440p but we can't increase the bitrate. Solution: AV1 encoding or please increase the bitrate for 1440p streams, thank you

  15. 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. I just finished streaming where EVERYONE heard my voice. Now that I look at the playback, I can hear EVERYONE but my voice. My streamlabs recording was fine. Does anyone know why that is??

  18. When I finish streaming, I go back to view my VOD. When I do you are able to hear my voice from the microphone, but you are not able to hear any PC audio for example, like game audio and discord audio. There is no music playing at all so there is no way it should be muted, and I check all the settings and everything.

  19. over the past 2 weeks I have been losing frames to the point when I stream today for 20 minutes it came out to a 2 and half minute video. Now I send you a message about this a week ago and NEVER ******* heard back. If this is what you call good service I would of dump you ******* in a heart beat.

  20. Bonjour,

    Je suis un petit streamer et une question revient en boucle de la part de ma communauté, pourquoi je ne peut pas changer la qualité de ton stream ?

    Certaines personnes, malheureusement, non pas accès au haut débit et sont bloquées sur du 1080p et ne peuvent donc pas regardé mon stream car la qualité est trop forte.

    Ceci représente une difficulté supplémentaire pour la visibilité des petits streamers.
