  1. Since we in Sweden are not allowed to join in and participate in channel-point betting on any stream here on Twitch, how about Twitch refrain from showing us advertisements from ACTUAL online casinos?

    I wish my brain could find the words my heart want to tell you. Alas, I can find none that fully measure up to the absurdity at hand.

    Thank you kindly for your consideration.

  3. I get 30 seconds mandatory ad after refreshing stream which froze and after refreshing another 30 second ad. I get that you are you doing your best to capitalize the most outta this platform but could you please chill just a bit with the frequency, I'm already doing my best to boycott every product you are trying to force down our throats.

  4. I've used streamlink for the past few years now. As of the past couple weeks. It is now plagued with purple screens that do not resume the stream or crash the player in the case of vlc media player. There is only one streamer I can now watch through streamlink since they do not play ads.

    I prefer to use streamlink because of its simplicity and light weight. Most of the time I'm doing something in my other monitor like playing a game. I don't want a web page slowing down my computer like the twitch site does.

    Or even…

  5. Allow streamers to opt for SDAs only, even if it makes up less profit.

    For people who might not know, SDAs are banner ads.

    Full screen intrusive ads have never and will never work, we've known this decades!
    * What do people watching TV do when the adbreak starts? They change the channel.
    * What do people watching Twitch do when the adbreak starts? The exact same thing!
    This is NO NEWS to anyone in the world, but it seems it's news for you, so now you know.

    I don't want full screen ads EVER on my stream. Ads kill…

  6. Banner ads appearing on channels I have subbed to. I do not get video ads on these channels. Fix it so subbing stops the banners too.

  7. Stop allowing ads to run every 5 to 10 minutes that last 3 minutes (1 of 8 or 9 ). I feel very annoyed along with others in the community about this. It will kill a streamers view counts

  8. The amount of ads is absurd. With the way the ads have been rolling out, you have one instantly when you open a stream, and then every 5-10 minutes you get 5-10 ads ranging from 15-30 seconds each ad. Why should we have to spend over a quarter of someone streaming to watch ads?

    Stream Display Ads were added, but not utilized nearly as much as regular ads.

    The stream video does display above chat now while an ad is playing, but is pretty much useless for most scenarios. If you can’t hear what they are talking about while the…

  9. There's currently very little information on how Display Ads actually function in relation to standard video ads. Creators have zero way of seeing revenue from them vs. standard ads.
    Do they replace standard fullscreen ads? Do they appear according to ad schedule settings?

    If these appear in addition to normal ads, why would anyone use them, especially when we have no idea what they're worth to us as creators.

  10. The interrupting full-screen ads HAVE to stop. When playing JackBox Games for example, your screen is literally gone and it ruins the game. The screen doesn't always minimize and go to the top right, so you literally have no stream to see. Thirty seconds is a lot during JackBox to not see the main screen (and this is just the JackBox Games example of the experience being ruined - there is no point in going to new streamers because ads play on my favorite ones already). This is completely ruining the experience on Twitch. I understand ads need to play,…

  11. when watching a streamer its frustrating to have an ad appear during a critical moment of gameplay, having the ad displayed full screen and the streamer on a very tiny screen + cutitng out of their audio is not a great experiance.

    imagine watching your favourite tv show and its at a very tense critical part of the show just as the moment is about to happen an advert takes over your screen and the tv show is shrinked to a tiny box, you can see whats happening but you cant hear what is being said because of this advert,…

  12. I love twitch. But when it comes down to listening to the action and having a conversation with the streamer and it is interrupted by an ad. It becomes abusive on Twitch's part. Perhaps if an ad was displayed at the bottom of the streamer's view portal (the player). that was stationary as the page was loaded in. It becomes a .jpeg. It is NOT a blockable item. I am tired of this "ad abuse" being 3 or 4 30-second ads in a row. Whats the point of even coming here to watch a stream at this point? I'd like…

  13. Los anuncios son más que en la tv. Adicional tapa el audio y te pierdes mucho. 5 anuncios de casi un minuto cada 3 minutos, insólito. Estoy considerando dejar de usar twitch.

  15. I really, really hate when these new ads change the screen size of the stream, it is incredibly intrusive. I would much prefer just a 30 second ad and then back to the stream.

    If people prefer them then I disagree. I would never engage with an advertiser that so annoyingly changes my view settings.

  16. What was the idea with ads that automatically play in the middle of a stream. Here I am enjoying watching my favorite streamer during a big moment then all of a sudden they are not only minimized to a super small box in the top right, but the sound to their stream is cut off in favor of the ad. Twitch said during their new ads this would not happen and they also said the ads would be non-disruptive by appearing in a small box at the bottom of the stream... this is clearly not the case. Who thought these…

  19. I discovered the existence of SDA not as an Affiliate, but as a viewer. I was surprised to see one of my favorite streamers running an inline ad - only to find out they were TOTALLY UNAWARE of the ad being run on their stream! After some investigation I discovered the existence of the SDA program. I like the program and I see a lot of potential for Twitch and its streamers to benefit from the program, but it is highly invasive to do this type of advertising without notifying streamers independently and prior to launch. I'm glad to see…

  20. Full-screen pre-rolls are a huge obstacle with user experience and streamer discoverability. Users do not want to browse new, unknown streamers because watching a fullscreen 30s ad before getting to check out a streamer is annoying. It's a huge deterrent so users tend to rely on their go-to streamer. Replacing the forced fullscreen preroll with a Stream Display Ad instead will encourage users to once again check out new streamers.

    This change would be a massive improvement for both viewers and streamers.
