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.
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.
