Get rid of the purple screen
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??
Seriously, you've implemented an obtrusive, unskippable purple screen that RUINS the Twitch 'experience' and if that wasn't bad enough you increased the frequency AND the duration from 15 seconds every 15 minutes to 30 seconds every 10 minutes.
Frankly this is nothing but greed, capitalising on ad revenue (as if you need it, you're owned by AMAZON, one of the biggest companies in the world!) but noooo, that's not enough, you want MORE!
Nobody wants to use twitch if even when they're adblocker is paused they're still faced with a huge purple screen. I personally have even stopped streaming BECAUSE of the purple screen. Why should I bother streaming when people have to contend with this bullsh*t.
Now I know you guys aren't stupid, undo your mistakes. Find an alternative way that isn't so annoying. If you don't, you're gonna see your viewers/streamers migrate to another platform because this is ridiculous.
Not only is your purple screen not functioning properly, because it often plays multiple times in a row (turning a supposed 30 interruption into a 90 or 120 second one), but it's absolutely moronic in design. NOBODY wants their broadcast interrupted, it's completely backwards.
On multi twitch, I'm watching two streamers, one of which I'm subbed to, the other I'm not, so it seems the site thinks I'm using an ad blocker on the unsubbed stream and shows me a purple screen, but I am not. Please fix.
I aslo cleared addblocker for twitch but i still get the idiot purple screen every 10 minutes for like 2 miinutes. Stop the **** twitch and fix your ****
How can this message show up even in a browser without any extension whatsoever?
Same here. Adblocker is paused on the entirety of the Twitch.tv domain, still getting the purple screen every few minutes. I'm happy to support Twitch with ads but want to protect myself where browsing elsewhere.
My adblock and VPN are disabled... why am I still getting the purple screen? This is ridiculous! You'll lose more money from users leaving than from whatever ad money you are trying to get. I will happily watch ads, but y'all aren't even allowing that!
I can't watch Twitch in any browser, forcing me to use your app if I want to be able to even watch a stream. If this was some ploy to drive people to your app that is deplorable. You could at least provide us with information like what third party site our traffic is being routed through so we could figure out what is doing the routing.
I have disabled AdBlock for Twitch and restarted my browser multiple times, I'm not going to uninstall my AdBlock because Twitch isn't the only website I visit.
I am now unable to watch a Twitch channel I am not subscribed to. I get a purple screen for 60 seconds frequently enough that it blocks my ability to watch. FYI my adblocker has been turned off for Twitch for years so that I am able to support streamers and Twitch. I can't even watch the ads to provide revenue, all I see is the purple screen message. I should not be punished just for having one installed.
Fix your programing, your greed is now punishing people who actually try to give you ad revenue. I'm really starting to feel resentful towards your platform, the greedy decision making, as well as, the extremely poor execution of your updates/choices.
With Adblock paused I should not be getting the purple message every 10 minutes, sitting through 4-5 minutes of absolutely nothing.
I can't uninstall Adblock on my device. My Adblock never even blocked advertisements before so please fix this new feature as it is making it impossible to watch anything on Twitch.
So, I've been seeing this since yesterday, it's very anooyin, ADblocker is NEVER activated on twitch.tv and I WILL NOT unistall it, you can't force me if I don't use it on you, this is ridicule, if this S*** continue I will move to youtube or facebook.
Hi! I have the same issue. All the sudden it started popping up (never had a problem before) and I'm watching on twitch.tv with adblock off.
Exactly the same issue, I'm seriously considering not watching streams anymore over this incredibly annoying "feature" that has been added to the site. Ad-block paused, watching through Twitch TV, even turned off Better Twitch TV.
I cannot watch streams for more than a few minutes before they get stuck on purple ad screen, sometimes permanently (repeats 30 sec countdown forever). My insight is to fix this.
Didn't see you there, that's because there's a purple message box covering the entire stream. It says that 3rd party browser extensions can decrease the quality of the stream-viewing experience. But given that the stream was just fine running at 1080p 60 fps and the only issue i've had is that box blocking the view (and muting the sound) for 30 seconds, i'd call this a big Kappa. Here's something else fun, whenever the timer reaches 0 for the 1st time, it resets. Gee I sure am glad that those "technical issues" caused by browser addons are now gone with a small price of 1 whole minute of being unable to watch the stream few times every hour. It even appears after dissabling both adblocks i'm using, you guys must be serious about your users getting that message. After all, it's not like people with actual technical problems would seek out help on their own. No, its best to ruin the fun everyone. Or is the true content that you are worried about, the stuff that those extensions got rid of for us? We better hear about an analyst not wanting to go to Yemen no matter at what point of the stream it might pop up. So Twitch, if you're sincere and that message, stop blocking the steams with that box, and let us, your viewers enjoy what we've enjoyed here for years.
Исправьте появление посреди стрима синего или фиолетового экрана (как просмотреть) каждый несколько минут. Очень мешает, потому что можно пропустить что-то интересное.
P.s. простите, в разделе не знаю что выбирать
My ad block is disabled/Twitch is whitelisted. This is pretty frustrating and hurts the streamers as well as infuriating users.
This purple screen saying I'm not watching on Twitch is just stupid. Even when I disable ad blocker it still shows up. It also says it's for 30 seconds but that "30 seconds" repeats like 10 times in a row. Being a sub to a channel stops it but why would I sub to a channel I can't watch? If this isn't amended you are going to kill your platform, please listen to you community, this won't get you profits in the long run.
Same here. Never saw the purple screen before yesterday (02/24/2021), and now it's showing up so frequently I feel like I'm watching more purple screen than streamer. My ad block is off, I'm watching on Twitch.tv itself, I don't have any other extensions or anything to mess with this. Since I basically can't watch any streamers because of this, I'm just going to have to stop watching Twitch altogether until this gets fixed.
