  1. Android app video playback speeds up after ad

    I've noticed the following thing on the Android app: when watching a video, an ad comes up (that's fine), but as soon as the ad's over, it cuts back to the video and the playback speed seems to be sped up slightly. It happened to me like 3 times now in the past week. Always the same issue.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    • Clear Viewing History in App

      Introduce the ability to clear viewing history in app.

      Twitch, as of writing is roughly 110 MB in size.
      The app data (for me) is 450 MB and steadily growing.

      Youtube, in comparison is 140 MB.
      The data use is only 40 MB.

      What is the difference? Why must the Twitch app be so storage hungry?

      • Clipping on mobile is limited:

        clips do not seem to be give the same amount of video to work with as a normal web browser. A browser gets well over 60 seconds of footage to pull a clip of up to 60 seconds from, but the mobile app seems to be limited to working with only 60 seconds of content total. Additionally, the start point of the usable clip data seems to be locked to 5 second intervals. This is apparent when trying to clip from a VOD. For example: clicking the clip button at 1:00:01-1:00:05 all give the same data to work with for…

        • Problem: significant delay before stream can be played

          The iOS app does not show that streamers are live until a few minutes after they start. There is no way to see the start of the stream live on the mobile app. Give the user an option to idle on a streamer's profile and have it start playing at the start of the stream (this is possible in the web browser interface).

          • Bug: Repeated audio and delayed video

            Fix this:

            The iOS app cannot handle continuous audio playback when entering/leaving the app or locking/unlocking the phone while the app is active. With live streams, each of these actions adds a couple second of delay to the stream content. With VODs, this results in hearing the same 3-4 seconds of audio at least 3 times just from entering/leaving the app, or unlocking/locking the device.

            • Bug: VODs lose playback position

              Fix this:

              The iOS app regularly resets the playback position of the video after unpausing a VOD. May also be a result of pausing, leaving, then re-entering the app. This makes VODs a pain to watch on mobile.

              • Reduce the delay on live streams

                On iOS, there is a delay of about 10 seconds compared to desktop and even Android on live streams. This happens even when the source quality is selected. The delay makes it difficult to use the chat on busy streams, as the chat is always way ahead while the stream lags behind.

                • Increase Font Size Option

                  I don't know if this is an oversight on Twitch's behalf, but you must realise that the text size on your apps is tiny. It's too small to be used comfortably by some users.

                  For many people either with bad eyesight or using their phones and tables to keep up with chat whilst streaming they have to put up with this tiny text that gets in the way of the enjoyment of streaming.

                  I, amongst others plead with you Twitch, please put larger font sizes in chat for those that need them. Be inclusive to those with less than perfect…

                  • Please reduce the delay on the iOS mobile app.

                    I get almost no delay when watching a stream on my computer browser. Even if I use chromecast to stream to my TV from my iPad there is no delay yet the moment I switch back to watching a stream on my iPad I’m stuck with a delay of at least 15 seconds and sometimes longer. It makes interaction with the streamer extremely frustrating as the topic has moved on by the time I answer back.

                    • The iOS App uses 100% CPU on my iPad

                      Since one of the latest updates the iOS App has started using 100% CPU which is draining the battery quickly and making my iPad extremely hot. I’ve verified this with a few different monitoring apps.

                        • Fix how you can see chat on mobile!

                          I have downloaded the update for twitch and now whenever I hold my phone sideways I can't see what I'm watching fully because chat is 1/4 in the way of he screen. Making the chat almost transparent and then putting it on the full screen was possibly the worst idea you could have. I'm not asking for rollbacks, just fix this!

                          • Mobile VOD audio-only timestamp synchronization

                            Currently if a VOD is changed to Audio-Only and runs in the background, it will not save its progress when it's reopened.

                            For example if you start a VOD, change it to A/O at 0:00:05, opens another app or locks phone, then reopens Twitch an hour later, the video will start at 0:00:05 again.

                            This feature would help alleviate many users that listen to Twitch in A/O modes and don't want to be left scrubbing through potential hours of video finding their last spot

                              TheiOS iPhone app stops playing sound if app is in background or screen is locked. This interrupts the stream all time if a iMessage/... is received and I need to reply.

                              Twitch app should work like other sound playing apps and stream the sound in background too.

                                I love watching streams, but I absolutely hate the chat. I want to be able to enjoy it like I would something on my TV and not be bombarded by hundreds of messages a minute of crap I have zero interest in.

                                  • Option to disable "same Language" channels.

                                    So the latest update for the mobile app introduced channel suggestion based on your language.
                                    http://i.imgur.com/OKiAjRl.png
                                    Those appear in every game directory and on the channel directory. It would be nice to have an option to disable those. I rarely watch streams in my own language and this takes up a lot of unnecessary space for me. A polish friend also finds those rather annoying so I guess I'm not alone with this.

                                      • Ability to limit data usage to wifi only

                                        Accidrntally used up all my data a couple of times due to dropping wifi connection and not noticing. This setting would help to manage twitch data usage and prevent accidentally exceeding data caps.

                                        • Dont play a 30 second add everytime the stream refreshes or you load a new one.

                                          Tone down the frequency of the adds, i cant watch a single stream in peace. And i always miss the good bit because when i reload i get adds.
                                          Even youtube mobile dosent waste my time this badly.
