  1. Fix high bitrate 1080p60 Chromecast Streaming, because it constantly stutters.

    And yet it doesn't stutter on my phone itself, or my PC, or my PS4. Please address this issue.

    • Fire TV app cannot display followed games

      The followed games display at first. But as soon as you try to select one, they disappear

      • Bring back updates on Roku TV.

        I almost deleted my Twitch App on Roku the other day accidentally and I would have been in trouble by doing so. I and my wife are disabled and cannot cart around a computer or laptop every time we want to watch Twitch so we D/L your app. Now it says it will no longer be supported. I realize business is business but remember people are people also and WE ARE your business!

        • Add different chat options to Twitch app on Amazon Fire Stick

          Add different chat options to Twitch app on Amazon Fire Stick

          Like the recent IOS upgrade, I think it would be awesome to be able to toggle the chat on the Twitch firestick app to have a black background, as well as being able to toggle it to be transparent and overlaid on the right/ left hand side of the stream you're watching making having chat open on a TV much more enjoyable

          • Bring back the Roku channel!

            The Twitch app was removed from the Roku Channel Store and will no longer receive updates is the word from Roku. I'm not buying a Fire TV to watch it, Amazon. I tried your Fire TV and Roku just works better; plus Roku makes it easier to find my channels which are buried under all your Amazon garbage on Fire TV. Limiting the ways people can watch content from entities you own seems like shooting yourself in the foot.

            • Chromecast is broken again sadly

              There are a number of issues with the updated app when using chromecast. First, the app doesn't stop casting when you exit. It won't stop casting when you cast another app. When you go back to the app there is no video showing, because it thinks it's casting...but its not. You have to go into the chromecast app, and stop it casting to switch or close the app and reopen it again. that works sometimes.

              Also, lots of channels are skipping at high resolution. it's sort of random which streams skip at what res. Some skip at high res and…

              • Make the Roku app look like your landing page on a browser so that when you log in you can pick which channel you want to watch.

                Currently, there appears to be no change when you log into the app. When you log in it should make your Twitch page look like it does when you are viewing it with a browser and actually show the channels you are subscribed to. Just finding what you want to see on the Roku app requires a search and there appears to be little benefit in actually logging in.

                • Roku App barely works.

                  Most major channels will load to 99% and then remain frozen there. Only a handful of channels load properly and play. This issue happens on my friends Roku as well. I have had to resort to screen mirroring, which drops frames like crazy.

                    • Roku: Add Confirmation To (Un)Follow On Current Channel

                      It is very easy to accidentally (un)follow a channel that you are currently watching in the Roku app due to the manner that the current channel user interface is designed. By default, pressing the "OK" button on the Roku remote twice will trigger a (un)follow on the current channel without any confirmation from the user. Please add a confirmation screen to the (un)follow process to prevent these accidental (un)follows when fumbling with the Roku remote.

                        • Screen scaling

                          on Fire TV, the boundaries of the screen don't adjust correctly like other apps do. Because of this there is a portion of the video that is off screen, some TV's have options to adjust the edge scanning, but not all do and it can be annoying to change it every time just to watch twitch.

                            • When casting from Android to Chromecast sometimes the Android device will still play audio from the cast while the chat is up

                              This forces you to mute your devices audio if you want to stay in chat. Also, the latency is much greater when casting to Chromecast compared to if you were just watching on the Android app, or it is if the audio that ocnes from the app is any indication

                                i think it would be more comfortable to watch streams from tv instead of making enormous nets of wires or overloading your wifi with AirPlay receivers for tv. instead of that there could be just one twitch app for all smart tv sets with chat on the screen, titles, dark mode and all other things..also emotes would be nice.. really, think about that)

                                    When you select a game on the Roku app you are greeted with lots of incorrect options to pick from. For example, I will select StarCraft2 to find my favorite streamer. the list of channels comes up and I find League, Dota, Minecraft, Meroes, etc all mixed in with StarCraft.

                                    Further complicating things the channels aren't sorted in "number of viewers" order. This makes me scroll through dozens of zero or one viewer channels to find Dreamhack at 20k viewers somewhere in the middle of the list.

                                      The Twitch Roku Channel is what I use most to watch live streams and I would like the ability to be able to watch VODs on it also. Even if you just make it possible to use the Android app to cast the VODs to the Roku Channel.
