Please use banner ads instead of random midrolls
Nobody wants to watch random ads that block out the stream. Picture-in-picture doesn't work if we only see but not hear the stream during ads. Banners would solve the problem - you get to give us more ads but the stream doesn't get interrupted. I repeat: nobody needs random ads that block the stream. it's not only disruptive for the viewers, but also for the streamer. bad idea, really.
Get rid of the purple screen of death you useless wankers!
Too many ads. I usually just close out and watch youtube instead.
Since amazon bought twitch in 2014, just how much money do these companies REALLY need ? It looks like some kind of compromise could be worked out so everybody satisfied. Of course that's just my opinion.
we have small picture without sound and midroll ad that i dont even seen. Why do i remember TV with their midroll that are at least a minute long? Ah yeah, it's the same thing
The ad system ist perfect without any kind of midroll ads garbage.
Twitch makes tons of money from normal ads already and through subs. Midroll ads are completely not needed!
I just got ads every 15 Minutes(!) while watching a speedrun. Guess what? I missed key content. Yeah thank you very much. This is not frigging Television!
i know some people here said in the comments it wouldn't work but i wonder if there is a way to make a banner pop up within the video player and can't be blocked similar to how right now ads show and it is generally harder to block using ad blocker that way its not interrupting content as much, no sound so people can still clip and ads still get their products in front of eyes seems like a win for all parties
Wouldn't work from a business perspective. Banner ads are easy to block, they need an alternative though. Perhaps split the screen in half, ad on the left, stream on the right. Stream with a higher volume but the ad also having audio, for obvious reasons.
100% the best compromise options. I realize Twitch needs money, but interrupting content makes me want to not use the platform, while this is a tolerable change that satisfies all parties.
Oh that is a great idea!
This is reasonable imo
This would be an incredibly helpful change. Or above the chat window where you're planning on moving the stream image.
Put ads as banners below stream, or as popup videos in the corner of the screen This is implemented all across the web and is particularly important when the website is selling live content that should not be interrupted.
Muting, minimising, and obscuring streams will only hurt a streaming platform.
