make the video and audio stop buffering every 10 seconds
stop all the buffering
it's 2021 *******! why does all my fav gamers still stream on this stupid platform and why can't they still fix buffering! TWITCH has gotten on my nerves
UK - 200MB STABLE CONNECTIONS.
I experience the same thing as "monksuu" below on US servers since 1 week. :/ There is definitively a problem somewhere server side! Worst between 8pm to 11pm Eastern time
"No wonder it can't keep up with 1080p60 stream running 6 kbps while sometimes waiting for packets up to 2.4 seconds. The server can barely keep a 1080p60 stream downscaled to 720p60 going without buffering constantly but the low latency mode is off the table."
The "Finnish" server (really looks like to be in London, UK) 188.8.131.52 is lagging really hard. Looks like it happens every time of the day so we can rule out lots of traffic around 4am. According to traceroute the last visible hop is on 184.108.40.206 that belongs to cogentco.com. If the server really was in Finland, it wouldn't go to servers in London (lookip.net/ip/220.127.116.11) or servers having "sto03" (Stockholm, Sweden?) in their domain name.
Pinging the "Finnish" (from Country Flag + extension) server gave lots of answers:
--- 18.104.22.168 ping statistics ---
100 packets transmitted, 100 received, 0% packet loss, time 99186ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 23.877/183.443/2366.548/427.185 ms, pipe 3

It's been about an hour since I started writing this comment and I had a stream running in background. It was set to be in low latency but the current latency to the streamer is 4.33 sec with 29 skipped frames in 720p60.
A video should pop up when it notices lots of buffering that suggest the user to lower the quality. Countless times people have been watching my stream and I just suggest lowering the quality and it works for them.
5 minutes to buffer a 30 second clip on a 200 mb/s steady connection. I am deleting my twitch account your profits must be insane yet your site is actually unusable
Buffering issue that just started happening a few days ago. Never had any problems whatsoever before this and no it is not my internet connection.
Fix your ******* buffering. It's making streams literally unwatchable... unless I want to watch five seconds of stream followed by ten seconds of buffering.
The title says it all. There is nothing wrong with internet or on the streamers ends which means the problems is on twitch their end! FIX IT! I want to watch streams again!
stop being lazy and address the problem
@elixorx Exactly the same thing on Brave and on Chrome, not better on both browsers! The problem stays the same, it's their servers.
I get this a lot on Firefox and not at all on Chrome
Since 3 weeks, between (7pm to 11pm +) EST, it's H3LL on twitch for viewers. I'm the main mod of a partnered stream, and we have complains each nights about this, and I'm myself touched by this unacceptable and very irritating problem!
I must watch streams now at 480p at peak hours! What did you do to your servers??!!

Everything works perfectly fine except Twitch, and only with non partners, which most of the people I watch are not. stop being cheap twitch, maybe use that Amazon money for this instead of hiring people who advocate against communication in video games.

Even with a clean install of windows i constantly lag on twitch 480p, but i can watch videos on youtube in literally 4k 60 fps on youtube with 0 issue.
When listing to live DJ music often times it will skip and cause the sound to stop. I suggest adding buffering on the download so it has a latency and prevents the skipping in the sound. It is rather annoying. Love twitch. Hope you guys fix the skipping.
Yeah this is really dumb, i havent been able to watch a stream on pc for so long now and my phone is starting to be dumb all big streams work but my friend who isnt a partner, i cant watch it at all so i dont know what to say anymore other than, TWITCH FIX YOUR ****
I've had consistent issues with twitch app on my Fire TV everytime I go to watch in the afternoon, and yet have less problems if I just use my phone. Cmon guys

Hey Twitch engineers, here's a description of the bug if it helps: The app *skips forward* in the stream a little bit, and soon after that it runs out of video to play and spends 10 seconds buffering. I have a fast enough connection, so that's not the problem. Stop the player skipping forward and losing the existing buffer. Then we'll be a couple seconds behind the chat, but that's ok, then the stream won't keep stopping to buffer.
