  1. Automatic mid-roll ads would be much better for the streamer and viewers if there's ads that doesn't interrupt the stream audio content totally, instead just taking most of the screen to display the product/service advertised, with the stream visual being shown in the picture-in-picture. Leaving it as an option (if mid-roll ads have sounds or not) to the streamer would be the best so you could know what the creators want to have on their stream. I know silent ads usually doesn't pays as much as full video ads with sounds, but having less intrusive ads would allow you to…

  2. Ads are intrusive, annoying and serve no real value to a viewer or creator in a live streaming platform. But if they must exist, why not make them not so intrusive to the experience?

    Currently the PIP solution does nothing good for either party. It still essentially shuts off the stream on a whim and if people don't know where to look, it's all but gone for the time the ad is running. Why not put the Ad window where the stream window goes now, and let the stream keep running as normal, so we continue our engagement with the…

  3. Currently, when some streamers play ads, their streams will still play in a little box at the top while ads play in the main video player. The problem comes when -- let's say something critical happens on stream, or chatter asks question you'd really like to know the answer to. You can't cash in on the information because the streamer's stream is either muted or gone during ads.

    Yeah you can always go back and review the vods (unless streamer has them disabled) but that defeats the feeling you'd get out of experiencing whatever happened in the moment.

    I don't…

  4. Instead of interrupting the stream with an ad and minimizing the stream above the chat, flip it. Keep the stream running normally, but periodically add silent ads above the chat. If the viewer wishes to see more of the ad, they can click the ad to play a full version (and maybe be rewarded with bits that can be used with the current streamer), with the stream minimized above chat like it currently is. This eliminates unintended interruptions and still allows advertising space.

  5. Please enable picture by picture for pre-roll ads. I'm a small streamer and I feel a lot of people aren't willing to sit through a 30s or longer ad break just to see if my stream quality is good or chat is active or if the preview image is accurate to what I'm actually doing on stream. Picture by picture would fix this by enabling them to check out the stream and chat whilst the ad plays in the main view.

  6. Pretty much what the title says. Also, instead of having the stream minimised during an ad, have the ad in picture-in-picture mode, otherwise it's just intrusive and turns viewers away. Similarly having multiple 30 second unskippable ads doesn't help either, having a small ad window eases this.

  7. Streaming content is muted and minimized in the corner.

    After the advertisements are done playing, the stream is STILL muted.

    This is frustrating because I have to interrupt what I was doing to un-mute THE THING I WAS ALREADY INVESTED IN WATCHING.

    Simple solution: auto-un-mute the stream.

  8. Would it not be better to put ads over the chat like the stream window in Watch Party? Streams would be still running and everybody would let it run cause it would not ruin the stream experience.

  9. ads are not an enjoyable experience no matter how you try to present them. Don't be like everyone else and force them on people. Find another way. Do something different.

  10. currently you have ads playing in the main screen taking over volume as well as preventing people from hearing the stream while you push the stream into a small player above chat without sound. for many games this makes it impossible to keep up with whats going on especially with the random timing you've now introduced into the ad plays now that its out of the control of the streamer.

    if you could swap the ad and the mini stream and not force the ads volume to mute the stream the ad could play effortlessly without really bothering anyone especially…

  11. The automatic mid stream ads are intrusive and make me not want to watch any stream because important content just gets covered up. They ruin the entire flow of everything.

  12. All ads need to run in a window on the stream instead of blocking out the stream for up to 20 seconds. Every ad that runs makes me AVOID the products shown like the plague because they are INTRUSIVE and BELIGERENT is brute-forcing advertising about items I have absolutely NO interest in.

  13. Please consider adding a PIP window for the add during the stream. I should have to watch the same add over and over again. I will not continue to support Twitch any longer.

  14. The current implementation of ads is very lackluster, it either complete obstructs the gameplay without Picture-In-Picture and creates a disconnect to the stream which is a detriment for the entire twitch experience or it obstructs most of the stream.
    A way better implementation would be to let the streamer control ad placement like cam placement in the stream and to have an ad window without audio that's about the size of a webcam. Especially with options like having the ads slightly transparent or as an overlay it could be way more attractive for companies as well since they get way…

  16. Instead of mid-rolls, why not ad an official ad extension. Maybe this would even be a "free" extension, and not take up a slot. Streamers could decide whether it presents as a chat banner, or a top bottom or side banner and where the ads go on an overlay system. If it's been too long since an ad has played, instead of completely hijacking the stream, banner ads will play where the streamer has opted for them. This way the streamer can ensure that as little important information is covered as possible. If a streamer plays an ad frequently enough,…
