normalize Ad volume with content volume
Not as frequently as before but still often, Ads play which are dramatically louder than the broadcast content. This is an annoyance, interferes with other people in the house, and frankly makes me more likely to mute the ad and go do something in a different tab.
Normalizing volume levels with stream average volume or peak volume wouldn't take a huge amount of processing power and would fix the problem entirely. It's required by the US's FCC in other broadcast mediums, but it's really just a quality of life improvement for the viewers and a mark of good production.
Setting this to a partial release status as the majority of ads on web and TV apps should now have normalized sound. We are still continuing the work on this and will update the status again when it is fully complete!
lower the volume of the ads
NO ASMR, MUSIC, Meditation, etc hell all Categories should not get ads at all unless the streamer intends them... the old system was great i want to make ad revenue hit a button... it should be reverted back to the streamer in control and not the greed of amazon.. its even worse now with these random LOUD audio ads in these safe space streams...
I completely agree that this is a major issue. I have twitch on while I work and I'm often not looking at the particular stream. I have a huge problem with ads appearing with the volumn much higher than the stream. On top of that, when the stream resumes, the volume is often raised from its original level or muted for some reason.
Ads are annoying as it is but these issues have made them disruptive. I often have to switch to a smaller streamer or someone I'm subbed to when they start. If I'm really inclined to stay on that stream, I'm probably muting the ad to avoid these issues.
Are you perhaps sponsored by hearing aid companies? There is absolutely no reason my ears are blown off my head every time an add starts. Please please please address this because it is horrible
Me parece una buena idea para nosotros como streming
As an ASMR streamer, so many of my viewers have to adjust their headphones a lot for ads or risk damage to their ears. Please allow for lower volumes to protect their ears. Thank you
I can't watch twitch with a headset, because of this. I have screamed out loud before when the ads come on, because it hurts so bad. When watching on pc I turn the sound down by 50% when the ads come on or just cut the sound completly. It is a big issue.
For what it's worth, I've filed a complaint with the FCC website. This is absurd. I've already got hearing loss from the military and I don't need Twitch commercials(particularly the Monster one) making it worse.
baisser le son des pubs pour qu'elles soient au même volume sonore que les streams
Twitch, please address this. I watch streams at work. When I suddenly get ads, which are dramatically louder than the stream content, I am driven to (a) mute the ads or (b) stop watching completely. Also, you're required to normalize ad volume by law: https://www.fcc.gov/media/policy/loud-commercials
Die neue Huaweii Werbung ist unglaublich laut. Bitte ändert oder entfernt sie einfach. Ich erschrecke mich jedes mal.
This still needs a lot of work. Is it really that hard to adjust the playback volume to the streamer's content average volume?
For the Twitch video player to know the amount of volume is being outputted, this can be via the slider that the viewer has set or the DB the stream averages, cause alot of viewers like to lurk or go to sleep with the favorite content creator on, myself included.. Only to get woken up by the loud Ads being played through the stream, But this is more noticable when your streamer raids somebody your not Subbed to.
Will be an awsome feature to add
This is a fantastic idea! I literally just got one that was so much louder than the video and the other ads. Each ad itself also seems to be at different volumes so its been hard to have twitch on while I work or at night because there is a chance I may get blasted with a loud ad.
I'm about to sue twitch for hearing loss.
Ads are too freaking loud
Please lower the volume on ads. They are always too loud, especially in comparison to the streamer. It is bad enough that it frequently shocks and hurts me when they start, and I have been having an exceptionally negative experience, especially with more vivacious audio.
5 years, no solution... I just wish there where laws against this... but you can bet if i ever get a fine when the earth starts shaking in the night cause twitch start playing ads i will redirect it to twitch
The Intel Gamer Days ad is like 5 times louder than all the other ads that play. It's deafening loud and plays at least once every ad break for me.
Haha I was about to fill a support ticket about that :)
I don't know this much about USA, but I know many country have strong consumer protection laws regarding volume of advertising on TV (a quick check shows some laws emitted by the FCC). In some countries these laws can also be applied to internet.
Overall it would make the experience more "enjoyable"...
Either you keep the loud advertising or you keep the three 30 seconds ads every 15 minutes ;)
