Don't end the stream when you switch games
When you want to change a game with the twitch app or restart it the stream automatically ends and you have to restart. This is a problem for when your game freezes especially because you have to restart and you will lose your viewers
I am a variety streamer and I like to play multiple games in one day. From Apex Legends, to Brawlhalla, to Overwatch, to Bloodborne... it seems to me like an easy fix. I'm also surprised that this problem (for the PS4) carried over to the PS5. Like many of the comments here, I also want to do long streams and thats not possible unless I commit to one game... which face it, how fun is a game after you've been playing it for 5 straight hours... I'm not trying to play one game for a living!
Yes! I recently had to move and only have wifi and something is wrong with it. I have to cut my streams in half sometimes because of this
Even though you are switching games on console (for me xbox one); I understand keeping information about yourself privet, but why can't it just continue streaming once you've loaded in a new game? I lose a bit of viewers switching games :(
I really want this for ps4 I hate not being able to do 6 or 7 hour streams because I have to end the stream to switch games. It makes it really hard to stream for long periods of time. If your ok with playing the same game for 2 to 10 hours this shouldn't be a problem.
While I’m streaming On my Xbox , I switch games and my twitch ends then restarts out of no where. I’ve been streaming for almost a year and this is the 4th time this happen to me. Please help.
Hey all! This seems to still be an issue. For whatever reason, if you are streaming directly through your console (for me it is Xbox One), whenever you simply switch games the stream resets. I have noticed the little "live" overlay that appears on screen when streaming and gaming does not change or go away. It will save the VODs individually per game and not in one file. I did notice someone say that is was not in the control of twitch, but this was never an issue on Mixer when console streaming. Why does it just reset?
This is, sadly, not in the control of twitch. It is something you would need to take up with the console manufacturer. It most likely works that way so you don't accidentally show the world private info while in the consoles main menu which often shows your real name and sometimes email address, etc...
