Watch Parties BUG
Currently, there is a BUG with Watch Parties in relation to the "streamer window" that moves above chat while the stream from Amazon is happening on the main part.
Since about April 6th or so, I start my stream ("starting soon") in another category (as one can't as Watch Party - ahem ahem...) and the scene shows perfect. Any scene switch shows fine in any gaming category too.
I then start the watch party and the show/movie themselves stream fine. However, MY scene, which moves above chat just the same as when someone's stream moves there during ads, is just a black field.
I have posted this in the Twitch Studios discord but this is not a TS problem. This is a TWITCH PROBLEM.
This issue was seen by my viewers in my stream and an IRL friend and I witnessed this in other Watch Parties too. In fact, one of the viewers of this other watch party, when asked, also said they saw black for their streamer.
I know that Watch Parties are not a huge category (IMO because Amazon/Twitch don't push them) but, really, we are promoting Amazon Prime for your company. Surely that ought to count for a crumb of tech support please. Those scenes working as intended are really important for Watch Partiers...
To clarify, you posted this under TV Apps; are you only noticing this behavior on the TV App, or is this behavior true for when viewing on web? Please let me know. Thanks.
It's where the system took me. That said, today at least, this was solved. Might have been since I first posted this in the Twitch Studio discord and maybe it was somehow funneled through there.
I think you can mark it closed. Thank you for reaching out!!!
