  1. There is to much audio lag compared to the video, it's not even fun to watch when the voice is so far ahead of the video

  2. I leave my account logged in on the family smart TV. I'd like to block channels not marked family-friendly behind a PIN if possible. Even better, I'd like to consider certain games as not family friendly. We often see shooters marked family friendly.

  4. Currently the only way to get the currently logged in user it to parse an array from
    https://api.twitch.tv/helix/users

    This is a request to add back an endpoint that only returns the single object of the current user. At paths such as:
    https://api.twitch.tv/helix/user
    https://api.twitch.tv/helix/users/@me

  5. Dear twitch,

    “gamestreams” is a great app for LG smart tvs (webOS) that allows one to watch twitch streams directly on the tv without the need of using some other casting devices. Unfortunately after the API V3+5 change/shutdown the app suddenly stopped working. I’m sure there are lots of people watching twitch on LG tvs and we’d like to able to do so in the future. After reaching out to the developer of the gamestreams app i got the following answer from Reemet Paabo:

    “Yes Twitch.tv is closing down the V3 and V5 API endpoints that we are using and…

  7. Title. Given the stability and usability of the app as a whole, having to /attempt/ to cycle through several screens worth of channels is already a gamble. Please allow the Fire TV app to have an option to filter by language, or embed the setting within the user account settings.

  8. Currently, in the AndroidTV Twitch-App, you can only move through a VOD by 10 second-steps, which can be really annoying, for example, if you try to skip the first 2 hours of a VOD.
    I would greatly appreciate an option to put in a time to jump to inside a VOD, so you don't have to click forward a few hundred times anymore.

  9. Twitch offers this feature: https://www.twitch.tv/yourchannel/dashboard/settings/moderation "Non-Mod Chat Delay", but currently it is only available for 2-second increments. I understand that this was probably designed with human moderation in mind, but this option is also very useful for automatic moderation with chat bots, but the delay would have to be lower. I ask for this setting to be available in 0.1-second increments so it can be set to e.g. 0.3 seconds or 0.5 seconds to prevent messages from showing up for brief moments before a bot times out the user.

  11. Creative and IRL categories have been available, in some form, on Twitch for nearly 3 years now, ever since the Bob Ross series was marathoned. Yet, despite the existence of these categories, people are woefully unaware of the existence of any of them, except the biggest two: Just chatting, and Music and performing arts. The latter of which is usually overrun by 24/7 radio channels, while Just chatting is still a "catch-all" category for even content that should be categorized under the specific ones (eg. Travel and outdoors, etc).

    It's not uncommon for people to comment along the lines of…

  12. The "Followed Games" section row, keeps disappeared when I try to navigate to that row in the Nvidia shield TV Twitch app, and then it is only "Live channels" and "Followed channels" left on that screen.

    This is annoying me to no end. Please fix?

  13. I follow a lot of channels, but a majority of the time, I'm looking for one game in particular to watch. It'd be nice to be able to filter my Live page (https://www.twitch.tv/directory/following/live) by game.

  14. I love watching VODs at a faster playback speed so I can view more content faster, but this option is only on web rather than on my TV app where I prefer to watch.

  16. 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.

  17. It would make the chromecast experience a lot better if I could have the option to show the chat on the side, just like it would on my PC in theater mode.

  18. The featured broadcaster space takes up over half the available screen width on a 1920x1080 resolution homepage. I have never once wanted to watch whatever this video was, making it a waste of space for how I want to use Twitch. Every time I go to twitch.tv the first thing I have to do is wrestle with that video to make it stop.

    When I visit the homepage I want to be greeted with content that's actually relevant to my interests. I want to catch up with the newest moments, posts and videos from my favorite games / people. Basically,…

  19. I'd like an option so you can cast twitch to your Chromecast or whatever device you use with the chat on the side, like the theater mode we have on browser/app.

  20. 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
