Ability to "pin" video stats, esp. Latency to Broadcaster
During a live stream, could a viewer please choose any of the video statistics under Settings > Advanced > Video Stats, and have only that statistic pinned somewhere on the screen? In my mind it would show up like a running FPS counter in a video game, without having to keep the entire blocky chunk of Video Stats cutting off a huge section of the stream's video (and sometimes the streamer's webcam). For example I find myself constantly checking the "Latency to broadcaster" statistic whenever I watch any stream. I always want to know the delay between what I see instantly in chat and when the streamer will have a reaction to the chat message.
In my experience, many viewers are not aware of the Latency to Broadcaster statistic being available, and often find themselves accruing a huge delay and getting behind on things happening without knowing it. Any number of things can cause these micro delays to accumulate: issues with viewer's internet connection, or the streamer's, or with Twitch's servers too. When I see a delay more than 5 seconds, I want to fix that.
Many people think refreshing the page is the only way to reset the Latency to try and make it smaller, but a quick pause/play of the video or a quick toggle on and off of the Low Latency mode also does the trick. Having the latency to broadcaster pinned somewhere over the video would help me know when I need to do these tricks to reset the latency and have a more interactive experience.
Thanks for your time!
It would be even nicer if you could pop this out too. I pop out some of the stuff in stream manager and it would be great to pop out all the stats so I can have it next to the stream.
i would agree with Ettin here, if not the ability to pin the window or particular stats, at least make the window transparent, as it is in the worst possible spot.
