make the video and audio stop buffering every 10 seconds
stop all the buffering
I would like to let you know that we have a special feature to report such issues as buffering, or any other playback issue. To do so, please click on the Settings icon (cog wheel) in the bottom right corner of your video screen and select the Report Playback Issue option. This will directly send a report to the relevant team with the necessary information to accurately track all hiccups with the players that occur, by attaching the specific data in real time needed to investigate such issues. Thank you!

Streaming quality is abysmal. Unbelievably irritating for it to pause every few seconds -- unwatchable.
I was able to watch weeks ago just fine and now all of a sudden everything buffers nonstop and I cant watch my favorite streamers.
Using Google Chrome. Trying to watch a live stream. Buffer fills, still frame shows, spinner stops spinning...but instead of playing the stream, the play arrow is shown again. I click that, it discards the buffer, starts buffering again...and displays the play arrow instead of playing the stream again. This pattern repeats endlessly. Just now I clicked the play arrow 13 times, waited for the buffer to fill each time, but the video just never PLAYS.
It used to work fine.
oh shit its happening to big streamers too, rip twitch & its broken html5/flash, w/e they doing now.
Even when I'm on medium or lower video quality the livestreams keep stopping or stuttering. Twitch really needs to fix this instead of worrying about how new bit donation buttons look.
audio and video buffers every 10 seconds, it's not my internet, Netflix and Youtube work just fine, it's your routing.....fix it please.

Certain streams buffer constantly on source and high settings.
Few days ago i can easily watch couple of streams at the same time on Source, now i can't even watch one of them, please fix this.
i notice the buffering more after a period of time especially if im watching a vod after a while it starts to buffer and pause and freeze constantly and nothing i do seems to stop it
Twitch is really dropping the ball, I don't know what's been happening recently, but it's really annoying. I'll be looking for a new streaming site soon if this keeps up. #MakeSourceGreatAgain
Ever since mid December I have only been able to watch streams on low or mobile quality.
Before that I watched on source quality. What's up Twitch? Is there no fix for this?

Same here. Since last week buffering on any stream and even on low quality. No problem to youtube or to recordet twich videos.
Same here. I even have some buffering on Medium. I had to watch ELEAGUE on Youtube which was working fine on the highest quality.
Please Twitch, do something.
Since 2 weeks its buffering on source like crazy. Didnt have this issue before now wtf is happening. I have to watch in shitty high quality which is unwatchable and ruins whole experience for fast paced games.
Same problem here, I can't watch any twitch streamer since a month.
And yes I tried every little step in your troubleshooting guide, there's nothing wrong on my end!
this problem started 2 weeks ago and I assumed that it was my internet until the technician came out and showed me there was nothing wrong by running 3 YouTube videos on a high quality, please fix twitch.
Same problem here, annoying me as fck... intnet not the problem, i got 200mbdown. FIX THIS SHIT FFS
