  1. Please don't block the video stream with Ads

    In the middle of watching someone's exciting steam, an ad pops up covering the entire video while chat continues. Chat is then going crazy because something awesome just happened, yet we were unable to see it because an ad was covering the video stream. What a disappointment.

    Make the ad go into a corner with sound or something, but please do not block the whole image. That's the reason why we are here, to watch the steamers. You want the ads for monetary gain, fine, but find a happy medium where you don't disappoint your customers. Badly placed ads drive…

    • Smaller ads, please.

      When i go to a channel, i'm forced to sit through an ad that completely blocks my view of the stream. I'm not against ads per se, but i AM against ads that block my stream.

      A small banner or some thing like that on the bottom of the stream would be more appropriate and would make me a lot more willing to remove my ad blocker(s).

      • Less ads on vods, please

        I have no problem with ads usually and I understand why they're there, but it seems that a new feature rolled out that makes it so that an ad plays every 20 minutes when you're watching a vod.

        I find this really annoying, as the ads are usually about 100% more loud than the vod so every 20 minutes I need to stop whatever I'm doing and turn down the volume on my computer (since I can't change the volume of the ad, which is not great either btw) and wait for the ad to finish so I can turn…

        • Short Ads like up to 15secs are fine with me, but 52+secs is too much, especially when It's an annoying ad. (M******* Dew Challenge)

          Short Ads like up to 15secs are fine with me, but 52+secs is too much, especially when It's an annoying ad. (M******* Dew Challenge)

          Plays over and over again, each time I refresh or reload a stream

          It's also very annoying when the ad kills the stream (black screen) and you have to reload the stream, it plays the same long a** ad all over again!!! Sometime it takes me many tries, 3-5 minutes to start watching a streamer's stream. Oh god.

            • Please make muting ALL ads possible

              So many times a day when i go to ANY stream and ad starts, that ad is usually louder than most earrape trollvids u can see from YT etc. Would be great if volume slider affects that to every ad that it doenst rn. And ive often heard "Lower your headphone sound" but thats not option as ithen i hear nothing but ad.

                    • Watching ads for bits

                      I wanted to leave feedback somehow and this is the only spot I could find to do it. Just wanted to say your gaining bits by watching ads idea is awesome. Actually, your entire bit system is magical. I really hate using PayPal to donate money to streamers, it's so slow and annoying to have to open another web page just to show some appreciation. Not sure if Amazon had something to do with that process or not, but I LOVE it. I just really wanted to show my appreciation, I really hope other countries will be able to share…

                      • Show if a streamer is payed for the content

                        Would be awesome if streamer that are payed for playing games need to make this clear.
                        Ppl playing pay to win games and hype them - its not clear that they are payed for.

                        • Bits from ads for each country

                          In the US, you can get bits to create ads. I would like to see if it is possible in every country. Because of course, we get something from ads. Twitch is happy to see more ads. Viewers happy with bits. Streamers happy with the bits they get.

                              I primarily use the popout player and/or chat when I watch twitch. However, when you load a stream you always see an ad, and when you open the popout player, it always plays a second ad. And, while an ad is paused you can't open the popout player (html5 player).

                                  I completely understand that there are adds on VODs. The problem is that when the stream places adds for X minutes the VOD player starts to play adds too at that time in the VOD. Well this means that one can't skip ahead in the content but i rather have to watch those adds or not watch the VOD ever again as it starts the VOD on the same place i closed it last time and the adds start over again.

                                    I've been getting the same 2 ads for a week now. Would it be possible to create a limit for how many times a person can see the same ad per day? Right now I've seen a Duracell ad for like 50+ times (its not even a good quality Ad) and I'm really starting to hate this battery maker.

                                    • Less Irritating/Annoying Ad Distribution

                                      I know that twitch has been looking into ways to get around AdBlock and whatnot to ensure that ads get played, but: Consider less intrusive/annoying/irritating advertising. The majority of people are using AdBlock because they find ads annoying. You know, that stereotype CONGRATS YOU'VE WON A FREE PRIZE!!! flashing ad kind of thing?

                                      If you were to make twitch advertising less intrusive, I believe it would help. Twitch ads already aren't *that bad*, but they could be improved in a number of possible ways:

                                      - Make the advertisement only hijack the video feed, not the audio. With the advertisements jumping…

                                      • Mute Ads too!

                                        When I mute a stream I'm watching, I'd love for the ads to be muted as well. Some of us watch streams like SaltyBet while multitasking other things and it may require our focus on another screen, etc. and it's incredibly annoying to have the stream muted and then being blasted intrusively with an ad that is more often than not, louder than the stream volume itself.
