Update Automated Mid-Roll Experiment with More Information
Would love to get more information on how automated mid-rolls will work -- and specifically instruction for streamers on how to avoid them, if possible.
In short, the idea your stream would be interrupted without your control is a scary concept. Either it's going to be better for streamers to control the mid-roll experience themselves, or the experience is something more experimental that isn't clear (vs. simply interrupting a stream).
In the Twitch Support initial Tweet it says "these [mid-roll ads] won't run if the viewer has an ad break." Can you clarify? FAQ seems to be missing how to control mid-rolls (e.g. randomly served) if the creator manually runs? It only discusses how to "disable pre-roll" in the FAQ.
As possible additional information, it would be great to get a potential range of how many viewers it might effect in what territories.
Regarding this page: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/ad-experience-experiment?language=en_US
Define "Small percentage of viewers".
This vague post basically says the creators need to predetermine when something they want the viewers to experience is going to occur, then stop what they're doing, and roll an ad, to prevent this from interrupting the experience.
