(South) African Twitch Ingest Server
It would be great if you guys could set an African, or South African, server up at some point in the not-too-distant future. I live in South Africa and have a really hard time streaming to any of the EU, let alone the NA or Asian ones. Currently YouTube has streaming servers here but it just isn't the same streaming to YouTube Gaming. The Twitch community is what makes it what it is and not being able to run a stable stream from here in South Africa turns so many would-be streamers away from potential bright futures on Twitch.tv. We have a large community of gamers ready and waiting.
Please consider setting a server up for us down here or wherever else you can that's not too far. South Africa and the other countries nearby deserve a chance too! :D
Shocked this isn’t already a thing with how big the SA streamer population is with its reliance on 3rd party relays
Early Christmas present to South African Streamers and their lovely communities? Twitch please?
If one of us throws our cats, can we get a server?
The South African Streaming community has really come a long way, with getting behind the idea of streaming as a business/career to be a norm. Every effort has been put in from our (South African Streamers) side to deliver quality content for viewers, for some that is every day. Not having a stable connection hinders the growth of South Africa to be on the map alongside so many other countries in the gaming/streaming scene. Yes, there are alternative platforms to broadcast to, but I believe it is the culture within Twitch where we have made a home for so many of our communities. There is a reason we choose Twitch, please see our value and choose to set up an African/South African Server. Please.
Would be incredible to have one here. The community is strong and growing each year. The local ingests set up by third parties are efficient but not always reliable. Africa needs relays!
Supported. Come on twitch, it's time!
To echo all the comments below, this would be a great addition and it would make streaming from South Africa a whole lot better. It would also open up further opportunities for the rest of Africa to join this global community.
In the short time I spent streaming - I set up 10 different AWS Relay NGINX servers for fellow streamers in the pursuit of better broadcasting. (this cost us all more money than we ever made)
We're toxically loyal to this platform and it would be great to feel some of that love back!
This would be fire. Please hear our cries.
Please, help a country out, Twitch <3 The community here is huge and always growing.
A South African ingest server would be gold. Please it would help out current and bring in more streamers to the platform.
It’s a huge struggle for many years.. the wishes have been flowing for years.. help us please
Please Twitch, lets make this a thing <3
Twitch sort it out.! needs to happen
C'mon Twitch, do the thing !
Please now Twitch... Streaming through a relay is such a pain and adds another stress when it goes down...
An African server would benefit Twitch not only by making it better for existing streamers, but encourage new ones to start without the technical issues we continuously run into.
There are so many SA Streamers, we are an awesome community - an African server would be worth it! I have had more disconnects than not because of no African server!
