  2. Just a few moments ago, I switched streams and the playback window was an inch too big: There was a field of empty black space between the chat scroll and the player where there wasn't one before. Since I hadn't updated my browser or changed it or anything like that, and further hearing other users complain about it, I decided that Twitch must have rolled out some new feature that wasn't playing nice with me. Heading over to the support ticket page, and after scrolling through the numerous options of permitted support ticket topics I couldn't find anything even close…

    Hi there,

    So sorry for the trouble you've had with reporting issues. We have a particular system in place to track issues with video performance: please click on the cog wheel located in the bottom right corner of the video and select Report Playback Issue. The system will route a report to the relevant team accordingly. Thank you!

  3. Whenever I alt-tab or switch tabs on Chrome (Win7 x64) I get a 30 second disconnect with a purple screen telling me to watch from twitch.tv
    For example, if I have two streams open, the one which isn't focused will get intermittent disconnects. My browser is updated.

  6. Would love to see my streams without 5-20 second delays. It's hard to be interactive with my viewers when I have to wait for them to type something and they have to wait 5-20 seconds for my response. Would love to see Faster Than Light stream hit Twitch. If mixer could do it I'm sure you can too. I'm sorry but I'm a ex-mixer streamer and their FTL was great to have. I miss it.

  8. Whenever I tune in to a stream these days the video quality always defaults to 480p. Even when I try changing it to 1080p, the stream refreshes and stays at 480p. Please fix the streaming quality options. I cannot even tell what is happening on the stream at 480p.

  9. Some streams are working fine, but others will be loading forever. I will hear 3 words, before the stream freezes and goes to reload. This takes some minutes, then I will hear half a sentence again and it goes back into freezing and reloading

  10. The past 2 or 3 nights my streams have been ending and restarting throughout the stream. It's not a bandwidth thing on my end because I have 100Mbps download and 18 Mbps upload speed. Please help

  11. Sometimes when using the play/pause media key on my keyboard to restart playback on a paused video, the video will play but the large play button (the triangle in a circle in the center of the video) with the semi-opaque gray overlay will remain on the screen. Clicking on this button removes the overlay, but completely negates the ease of using the media keys.

    I am using the latest version of Chrome, though this issue has persisted for several versions now.

  12. Some of my videos work just fine on a rerun but some (including one of our best gaming experiences ever!) start to rerun but audio becomes separated from video and the rerun just stops at a specific point during the rerun.

    The VOD itself for the selected video is fine, without the above issues experienced during a rerun.

    I've downloaded and uploaded the VOD but this has not fixed the issue when re-running.

    Is anybody else experiencing this problem and to the Devs, is there a fix?

  15. hi I can't seem to get all the video collections to load on channels I'm subscribed to like Critical Role for example. I know they have a video collection for campaign two but I can't get more then 4 collections to load and campaign 2 is not one of them. Same is true for geek and sundry, wednesday club. Also this seems to be a website/desktop(pc) issue I think because I can get the collections to load no problem on my android twitch app, so what is going on?

  16. Start playing nice with VPNs. I use a paid VPN and I am constantly being disconnected from the chat and missing out on chat logs. The video also randomly disconnects. I watch other streaming services and this does not happen.

    Hi there,

    This is likely related to an issue with your broadcasting setup's microphone input settings. If you have Twitch Studio, we recommend reaching out to our support team at help.twitch.tv. Otherwise, please refer to the help information of your broadcasting software. Thank you!

  18. This started happening yesterday. VODs will randomly skip ahead ~15 minutes pretty regularly. If I go back though I can watch the part it skipped, but it makes VOD watching experience terrible.

    Using microsoft edge on windows 11.
