  1. I commonly get these stupid purple screens saying that I should disable any adblockers and such in the middle of streams, sometimes multiple in the same stream only 10-15 minutes apart. Each one lasts for SEVERAL minutes, which makes watching streams much more uncomfortable because im missing a lot of content and having to listen and watch nothing. Are these supposed to be midroll ads despite the fact that you guys got rid of them??

  2. A 5 second warning before the ad would be deeply appreciated. My voice is very quiet so many of my viewers turn my voice up. A warning can warn them to turn the headphones back down so they dont hurt their ears.

  3. Dear Twitch,

    I think I speak for most of the streaming community when I say we do NOT like your new mid-roll strategy. Ads are among the biggest annoyances on the site and the solution is not to give us more ads. Here are some ideas on making ads on Twitch better for both the creator and the viewer.

    1. Give the creators an actual cut of the ad revenue
      Right now, this is absolutely peanuts when you compare it to other video content sites, it’s actually insane. This would make running ads also a bit more attractive for creators and…

  4. Give broadcasters the choice of what type of ads to play (political, beauty, sports, etc.) And make it so broadcaster-run ads disable random ads for longer periods of time.

    That way the streamer is in control of their cast

  5. Interrupting streamers' streams with an ad randomly without any semblance of their own control is going to ruin a LOT of clippable moments in streams, as well as push viewers away from many smaller streamers, which could seriously damage their livelihoods.

    Instead of this forceful approach to increasing the amount of ads, you can reward streamers who frequently and consistently play ads with more emote slots that will only stay if said streamer keeps their ad playing frequent and consistent.

  6. If you are going to have midrolls you need to provide us tools to work with the midrolls as best we can as creators. Enough people have given you a reason it is a bad idea. I am offering up ideas to make it at least workable if you continue this route.

    • We need a countdown on the streamer dash and the mod view on when the next ad will roll. Like a producer would have.
    • We need a limited ability to push back an adroll. Like a one time 2 minute snooze button, or a trigger early button.
    • We…

  7. I wish there was a option for affiliates and Partners alike to turn off preroll ads, a lot of us especially the smaller streamers hate that this is a thing and having a option to turn it off would make a lot of our streams a lot better. The reason why I say a toggle feature is because some streamers have a living from this so its not fair for them not to have it but the smaller streamers we dont like it and it drives away a lot from us

    Thank you for reading this and taking this into…

  9. Obviously we don't want Twitch to lose money and die out like other streaming platforms. The ads are a necessary evil. Let streamers control when the ads drop during the stream. Give them a requirement for how many ads have to be run per hour, or whatever the terms are, but let them determine when they run. Bathroom & food breaks would be ideal. Some streamers find the beginning of the stream critical, so running pre-roll is a bad idea for them. If the streamer doesn't run the required number of ads, hit them where it hurts - their wallets.…

  10. Ads have an impact on viewer retention. When someone new comes to a stream, an ad can discourage them from waiting - and simply close the tab. That hinders growth. However, self-run midrolls (to disable prerolls) may have the same effect...

    If we can see the impact that running a dreaded midroll can have on our potential to bring in new viewers - the friction against running ads may be lessened.

    So my question: When will there be information on our dashboard analytics on how many people leave during a preroll versus midroll?

  11. Pretty much as it says in the title. Interrupting live content is the most patently stupid way of going about this. I suggest the following:
    1. Make the forced mid rolls use the smaller picture-by-picture player and make them silent so the stream doesn't need to be muted.
    2. Use banner ads instead.
    3. Pause the live stream in the background while the ad plays so that viewers don't miss anything.
    4. Abandon the idea altogether.
    5. Give creators full control of when they play and what ads get played.

  12. How about a section that isn't about ideas and about direct feedback of experience(s) and or complaints. Before you say, " well if you are going to complain then provide a solution" .. that isn't my job as a user of twitch. I'm also trying to understand who uservoice is since twitch doesn't own uservoice? Here is my feedback and complaint ----> In short , in the last couple days, i went from seeing a single ad before watching the streamer to now, SIX ADS IN A ROW. What is that? It's also disturbing when the arrogant top tier streamers…

  13. Small creators have little to no opportunity to gain from ads because there simply aren't the viewers to gain anything monetarily.

    A fix would be to provide a greater incentive (more ad free time/bits but also the ability to opt out entirely unless the view count crosses a certain threshold e.g. 100+ viewers.

    Ads may be what keeps twitch free but there are plenty of 24 hour streams that constantly run on twitch because people come to twitch for the non-TV experience. Twitch threatens itself by changing into a cable-like experience

  14. Esses anúncios obrigatórios que aparecem no meio dos videos dos Streamers é muito chato, não tem opção de deixar de ver. Isso é muito irritante, estou pensando seriamente em abandonar a TWITCH TV e ir para a Booyah, pois la não tem esse tipo de problema. Que coisa chata, irritante, não tem como sair desses anuncios irrelevantes.

  15. When hopping into a stream for the first time you get an ad. There is then some cooldown before you get another ad even if you switch between streams.
    On mobile, if you click a link in chat (for example, a clip from something that happened earlier in the stream), it redirects you to a different video player to play the clip.
    The only way to return to the stream is to close this new video player, and go find the stream again. This then plays another ad because the clip took you away from the stream.
    This is a…

  16. The new "to view the stream while an ad is playing, watch it in theater mode" info card never goes away while watching a vod in fullscreen and ruins the viewing experience

  17. Stop blocking a live broadcast with the same three ads. This is live entertainment and your ads more often than not play at the most inopportune times. You're actually worse than cable TV because they pause the content you're watching for an ad break, you guys just want us to suck it up, consume your ads, and line your pockets with our impressions. I get it, you're a business, you need to make money, you're also the largest gaming livestreaming platform on the internet and taking a play from cable TV's playbook without the CRUCIAL component of pausing the entertainment…

  18. These are some ideas to improve the experience of the user when trying to find new channels to watch.

    1. Disable pre-roll ads for streamers with few viewers. Right now the user is actively punished for switching channels and this actively harms the discoverability on the platform.

    2. Add a cool down since the last ad was played before a pre-roll can be triggered again. A value as little as 5-10 minutes could greatly improve the experience.

    3. When running ads not triggered by the streamer it should continue showing the stream (eg. picture in picture with the stream audio muted). Right now…

  19. Voting is integrated into Twitch chat. When there are ads to be played, let the viewers decide which one(s) should play. This weeds out ads which the viewers of a channel don't like or have seen too often, and it will give Twitch useful feedback on the longevity and/or interest level of ads to take back to advertisers.

    To avoid spamming the chat with polls, the results of an ad poll will apply to any ads played on the channel for at least two hours.

  20. Like the header says, I want to avoid pre-roll ads, so I try my best to run a 60 sec every hr.. but when I do I receive a lot of grief about how other streams don't run mid-rolls...

    What is Twitch doing to support those who attempt to do this right? As I understand Mid-rolls are a much better way to deliver ad's.
