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.
A 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!
Let the ads begin silently. I'm going to be deaf, enough, why are you advertising so loud that it's deafening
Está horrivel, principalmente o novo anuncio da NuBank
Twitch ads are changing my volume automatically to the point where it is deafening loud. if i turn the volume down, when the next ad comes the volume is changed again.
as you can see here, i change the volume and when the next ad comes on, its loud again. i set it to 1% to show the difference. as you can tell this is a big issue when watching a stream on a normal volume.
The volume of ADs has been unbearably high in recent days. I am required to mute or just leave twitch. Makes you want to stop using twitch.
The volume at which you play your ads is ridiculously loud. Laws were implemented for television to stop doing this because of the safety concerns of increasing volume suddenly for ads that were so drastically different then the normal programming. Doing it on Twitch is even worse considering many people us headphones which is even more directly harming people with that sudden volume increase for ads. I get that ads are a necessary evil for a business model perspective, but can we not do it at the risk of harming consumers of the ads and maybe just leave the volume at a reasonable level.
Ads always play at 100% regardless of the volume the stream is set at.
Ads are WAY louder than the streams. Especially Taco Bell ads. Could this be fixed? Some people listen/watch calm streams or even try to sleep with them playing, and then a super loud ad comes on and is quite annoying.
I actually have to mute every single ad roll that plays. I have an audio monitor so I can safely say ad volume is on average 200% louder than any broadcast I watch. Since it comes out of nowhere, it is quite painful to my ears. I understand not having ad-specific settings to prevent circumvention but we NEED some way to user manage audio volume. Not to mention I cannot report or interact with ads in any way so the few specific cases that are even louder than the others I cannot report. Ads should be MINIMUM 20% quieter than the average volume of the broadcast. Or at least provide us with an ad-specific volume control setting. Doesn't need to mute, I would be happy with a slider going from 50% to 100% of whatever our current slider is set to on playback audio.
Did development on this stop?
How in the name of all that is holy can it take 7+ years to develop a feature as simple as this!?
(Hint, it can't. You either stopped on purpose, or you're just neglecting old tickets which isn't a good sign either).
You just caused me permanent hearing damage, so thanks for that!
The offending ad in this instance was one of the Sony ones.
This is why I came here and I saw your post. I had a cox ad that actually damaged my ears just now.
Still having this issue regularly where the ad volume will go to max even though I have the stream volume set much lower. This is highly disruptive as I generally have twitch playing on the side while doing other work when suddenly the ad will come on stream playing at 4-5 times the volume level I have it set for on the stream itself.
Idea was posted 05/14/2015, it took you over 5 years to get partial solution. 3 more years passed and still while playing content on headphones there's a hearing loss risk. Sooner or later someones gonna sue you. Imagine having some chill noises playing while you sleep and suddenly 5 times louder there comes an AD. No way I'll buy the advertised product
Ad volume is still too loud. It's dangerous for your ears.
The FCC requires the regulation of ad volume and its obnoxious there hasnt been fines for the almost double the decibel ads regularly playing
I also got a complaint from one of my viewers about this issue. It felt terrible that I can't do anything for them.
All ads to me ignore the actual volume of the stream, if I have the stream really low, the ad will be much louder, if I have the stream maxed, the ad will be a little softer. Still needs work
I think this actually works now to some extent. I went to a new stream, ad started on low volume, went to next stream and ad was a bit louder. might still be problematic, but at least not inside one stream. you could for example add volume because you can't hear the ad and next one comes out louds as heck after you jump to next stream.
