  1. Fix ads for bits

    Until a couple of months ago, I could earn anywhere from 5-75 bits per ad watched while watching ads for bits on my pc. That was cool and allowed me to support my favorite streamers.

    Then I installed the twitch app on my ipad. Big mistake. After installing the ipad app I was no longer able to watch ads for bits on my pc.

    The 'watch ad' button is now permanently grayed-out when I try to watch ads for bits on my pc. I am able to watch ads for bits on my ipad but I only get 2 bits,…

    • As per GDPR, personalized ads are supposed to be OPT-IN, not OPT-OUT.

      Every time I log in to my account, I am greeted with a possibiltiy to manage personalized ads, and it looks like this: https://i.imgur.com/8HUIhPP.png

      By default, everything should be off unless I explicitly state I allow gathering my data.

      • Watch stream and earn bits

        I wanted to give feedback for you so here comes the idea.
        People sit at your Twitch site every day. Watch a stream for hours.
        with no ads. Because those people have adblock. Or something else that they do not get ads. Of course we already have a way that encourages us not to use adblock, namely Bits from short video advertising. Now come with the following idea.
        Place an ad under the streamer. https://imgur.com/a/yeSqbL6 For example how I made it here. Making Twitch earn extra money. But how do you ensure that viewers do not turn on adblock? Well…

        • Stop intrusive ads. Ads playing every 10 minutes or less on non-live content is insane.

          Why do you guys at Twitch think it's ok to put ads every 5 to 10 minutes when watching a previously recorded stream. I just want to watch content I have missed but I Can't. Please put an end to that. The ads are intrusive enough when you see one in the middle of a live stream when first going there. But repeat ads at live and non-live streams (especially tons and tons of ads every 10 minutes or less during recorded streams that aren't even live is unacceptable.

            • Ad Volume

              I know that ads are generated to produce an income for the site, totally understandable why you don't want them to be muted or turned down all the way. The volume for ads here lately has been atrocious! Can we find the happy medium with the ads plz!

              • Remove ads from people streaming below a certain viewer amount.

                Remove ads from people streaming below a certain viewer amount.

                Good god, it's so incredibly frustrating to go to people who have maybe 10-50 viewers, and you get a 30 second unskippable ad. I understand big events having ads, I understand people with 100-500 viewers getting ads. But when I visit a friend who's streaming with 4 viewers, and I get ads, it royally pisses me off. Your ads are becoming more annoying to deal with than YT advertisings.

                • Add 'delay' option for when ads pop up at critical moments

                  I understand that ads are necessary to support twitch and streamers, and while I don't *like* it, I can deal with it. But one thing is SUPER annoying - when an ad pops up right when something exciting is happening/about to happen and everyone misses the action. At least TV ads have the courtesy to play during breaks - imagine if an ad came on while the super bowl-winning touchdown pass was in the air!

                  If we can't outright remove or skip ads (understandable), how about having a simple button pop up in a corner of the stream when an…

                  • Get the ad audio volume to be the same as the stream

                    The volum on ads are way to high, twitch should match the audio on ads match the volum on the stream. soo if a streamer have low sound and you turn up the volum to hear it you don't blow up your speakers when an ad is playing

                      I've been getting this same ad for many months now and it's starting to get annoying. If you're going to milk my patience for cash at least give me different ads.

                      • Way too much ads

                        We get to see the same ads every 10 mins ???? do you really imagine that people will stick to this platform with this kind of ad spamming ?

                        Most people use twitch hoping from channels to channels and we get to see the ads every single time. This is plain stupid.

                        • all wrong.

                          Most of ads should be skippable. Your site is a live streaming platform, you cannot force people to watch ads while they were watching something else that they will completely miss because of ads. Same concept goes for the first AD you are forced to watch as soon as you open one live stream. If im forced to watch something without any possibility to skip unless i close the whole page, i will 100% start hating on the promoted product just beause it is disturbing my plans.
                          Also giving people the possibility to spam as many ads as they want,…

                          • Unlimited bit ads or increase the number we can watch

                            I saw a post from a year ago and thought it would be a good idea for unlimited ads since we are willing to watch the ads. That or we should be able to watch more than 5 ads (usually how much I am able to watch) because I want to support my streamer but I don't have money and the ads are my only way of getting bits and when I can only watch a few ads it makes it very hard to get a good sized donation.

                              In Russia service vk.com is very popular. People often use stickers when communicating. You can make paid packages of popular smilies of Twitch or time them to an advertising company. I'm sure that smilies of twitch will become very popular stickers in vk.com.

                                  Hi fellow twitch enjoyed it. I have an idea what everyone would find PogChamp. Bits from ads worldwide. Now it is only in US in a test phase and that already takes a long time. What are the benefits that are becoming available worldwide? Viewer is happy with ads because they can get bits and then that streamer is also happy with the bits that gets. Twitch also happy with the money they earn from the ads. So everyone is happy.

                                    Why do I have to watch unwanted horror/thriller movie ads? Are you srsly thinking that is common ads topic? Then I should consider to stop using this app. I never thought twitch is this much toxic organisation. Disappointed tbh.

                                      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.

                                      • 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…

                                        • 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).
