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!
I came here to complain about the audio on the ads being WAY too loud. To the fact where I just threw my headset on the ground as I literally felt as I was about to go deaf. The noise caught me off guard sending me into shock and immediately rendering me paralyzed. I was scared and could have died. Ready to file a lawsuit. Thanks twitch!
Man... I'm sooo looking for this fix. I use to watch very quiet streams or streamers that just speak quietly and suddenly BOOM MY EARS EXPLODE BECAUSE THE AD IS AT 20000% VOLUME AND WITH SUPER LOUD MUSIC. It's sooo annoying. Sometimes it scares the **** out of me. And I'm forced to decrease the volume a lot, and then, once the ad is finished, increase it again... Every. Time.
my idea is for you guys to stop being incompetent and fix the volume of ads (loud af) please put your braincells together to make it happen.
They really need to get rid of the Monster/Apex commercial it's stupid loud especially on head/earphones and I see it mostly on the Twitch app which is very annoying and obnoxious.
I just wanna add my support for this. I'm sure there are a lot of people like me that also like to fall asleep watching a chill stream and the ads have become so much louder that it's near impossible to do so. Or you do fall asleep and an ad immediately wakes you up.
Ads in Twitch are the equivalent of a cheap jump scare horror movie. How the volume isn't already fixed is a riddle to me. It's such a big encouragement to use Ad blockers.
That one Monster Energy ad is way too loud, how did you even allow them to push that ad through, I have to mute it every time
I'm starting to notice a lot of Twitch ads are the culprit of the much higher volume across the board with a few non-affiliates in between
Moderate the sound/loudness of ads with the sound/loudness of the stream that's being watched. Even if there is an audio setting to lower the ad volume separately, some ads are horribly loud in comparison to the stream. The drastic difference in volume ruins the experience.
Laying in bed watching some stream, they are playing hearthstone and talking softly and suddenly the ads come on and wake up half of the house. Please fix this asap.
lower them, pls. and don't pause stream while on another tab, pls
Normalized could be better. The Dr. Martins ad is INSANLY LOUD! It almost blows up my headset and really hurts my ears!
some Ads are way too loud. It hurts my ears. Idea: Normalize the volume of all ads to a normal level.
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
