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!
Yes my user name is kinda dark so you can call me Brandon. So I assume that twitch doesn’t find this an important customer issue, but hey maybe they’ll start listening to their consumers soon. It is just ridiculous that I can be enjoying myself and then BEING YELLED AT BY SOME AD! Please stop blowing out our ear drums. I would like to hear from Emmett Shear about this and his plans to fix this issue. Thank you for your time and I look forward to his response to all of us.
What I love is when I'm listening to ASMR and a loud ad comes on screaming in my ear. Twitch don't care about mental health it looks like. After the recent BS with forcing ads on everyone I think I'll stick to YouTube.
I'm already half deaf, please stop trying to destroy the rest of my hearing.
Ads are still very loud, especially on Ipad/iphone app. You listen to a stream at 50% volume and then ads volume is so loud it hurts your ears. Twitch should consider its liability against harm to listeners ears, it's a serious matter and very annoying!
Looking at you Galaxy Samsung. It is so insanely louder than the stream AND other ads played beside it! It is careless and upsetting every time I run into this ad.
Can confirm there's no fix on web Brave browser 1.14.81
five and a half years, glad to know our ears are Twitch's top priority.
Why is it that when a mid roll ad is played in my web browser by a streamer does it then mute the stream after? This is so annoying why not go back to the previous volume?
Nothing fixed here, Alienware Ad just keeps shredding my ears
Definitely not fixed. Had ear buds in and a commercial actually startled the **** out of me it was so loud.
Laws prevent TV commercials from being louder than the content. What made Twitch think do it with their commercials was wise?
Unfortunately still not fixed. Ads are way too loud compared to the regular content.
c'est pas trop tot
Lower the sound level of loud ads
Get your fingers out of your ***! We pay the subscriptions! I thought I was going to go deaf
Get this BS fixed...
Over 5 years now and still the ads keep blasting out of the speakers...
8 months later, it's still so much shit
It's been more than 6 months since the official response (5 years since the original post). Progress report?
So Twitch really doesn't give a **** about this illegal behavior? It's 2020 now. Do we really need to take you to court, too?
From a technical standpoint, this issue is easy to solve. What's the hold up here?
I actually stopped watching twitch because of this, I mean look at the date of the post, may 2015, its now 2019, they didnt care about your hearing for a good 4 years. some of you might have earlier hearing loss because of it. Its absolutely ridiculous it took them this long for this change.
I am going back to YouTube and live TV if you do not lower the amount of ads that are played and the VOLUME the ads are played. It is terrible to see the same **** ad over and over again for something I will NEVER use or buy every 5 mins. Is what makes matters worse is the fact that the VOLUME screams at you for something I will never use or buy. As a matter of fact, I will never buy Ice Breakers again because I am sick of their breakthrough advert YELLING AT ME FOR 30 **** SECONDS!!! Fix the volume and the amount of ads. If it seems as though I am yelling randomly through CAPS, I am not. You are merely hearing an advert!
This absolutely needs to be addressed. It's impossible to wear headphones and watch twitch now because some of these ads are so loud it's painful (like actually physically painful). Sort this out now.
