Stream Audio and Ads Audio
So this is a pretty simple feature request. I would like the ability to choose the audio I listen to for streams, because nothing is worse when you're watching someone and they're deep in a conversation about something, or responding to someone's question and then it cuts to an ad and you miss everything they're saying because the audio from the ads takes priority away, muting the stream entirely. This is also severely annoying when people raid into channels and they're made to watch a series of ads before they can hear the streamer greeting them. Perhaps a priority should be set that if a raiding channel is coming in, make them exempt from being made to watch an ad when they first come in. Because nothing's worse when an ad takes away the raiders ability to hear the stream when an ad is being forced on them.
Give the ability to mute Ads while they still get to play, and still be able to hear Stream audio while ads run in the background. Simply being able to mute ads from videos does not take away from the ads that are run, and so the viewers can still hear what's going on stream. Also instead of pushing the stream video to a small box in the corner while the video ads play, why not just put the ads there instead.
In addition to all of this give viewers a notice prompt that ads are about to be played. You have this as a feature already for Streamers in their Dashboard to let the streamer know when the next set of ads are about to play, so it's only fair to also let viewers know when an ad is about to play on stream before they're abruptly interrupted to be made to watch an ad.
