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!
Haven't we affiliates been included in the personalized ads offer program yet?
So far I still haven't received my proposal.
in EU its quite common that ads NEED to not raise volume. But on Twitch many ads are blasting volume up by a lot. To a point I had to take earbuds off and even then I could hear the ad pretty clear. In Czech republic there are regulations for the volume ads can have. So I dont see a reason why not follow that rule
Volume of adverts is much louder than the streams, even if the volume of the stream is right down the volume of the adverts is much much louder. not only is this very annoying it is also illegal!
Why does this still go on? Ads have Vol up all the way 7/27/2022 please fix
The response form the dev tells you that you don't actually matter. Since every other service did it first, now twitch can do it. It is an interesting phenomenon that ad volume is so much higher than broadcast volume. Almost as if the advertisers think they are important...but honestly, stop letting advertisers cause hearing loss and frustration and NORMALIZE the ad volume. its easy, and all you really need to do is set a standard for advertisers. But you refuse.
스트리머 방송 시청 중 광고 영상 재생시에 사운드가 너무 크게 나오는 문제 좀
이어폰으로 듣다가 귀청 떨어지겠소.
담당자 옆에 있으면 아주 그냥 후드려 패고 싶은 감정 들게 만드는데
특히 요새 하현우 광고 째지는 소리 담당자 귀에 같이 들려주고 싶게 만드는데
They won't release it cause they aren't capable of doing it. Good luck trying to reproduce ads on my pc through adblocker
15 pages of same response, for years. Twitch could care less, and makes plenty of money. It is just entirely greed.
They haven't fixed nor tried, they been hard at work figuring out how delete friends. This site just gets worse and worse.
PLEASE get something done about this, this problem has persisted for years. The ******* "Hemlibra" ad for some hemophilia drug is currently the worst offender, I'll be listening to a stream at normal volume on headphones and if that obnoxious monster of an ad starts I literally have to yank them off to avoid ear damage.
GET THIS UNDER CONTROL.
Could you allow us to pre-set the default volume on Ads? if someone is watching a quiet just chatting stream they don't want to have their speakers/headphones blown out by a loud commercial with blaring music, sound effects, etc.
Experienced an audio ad this morning and I'm not a fan. It startled me because it was incredibly loud and the ad was louder than the stream. It was just blaring and I had to yank off my headset and my ears were ringing. This is so intrusive compared to the QUIET banner ads and Twitch, you need to address this issue and fix it. This is absolutely not okay.
Just a minor complaint about one specific ad that keeps popping up. It's new samsung TV ads. They start with a flash and a very loud noise, which makes me jump every time they start.
I think those kind of ads are really disruptive when you watch more calmer streams or can be jumpscare like if you watch a tense stream.
I hope you will look into this particular one and normalize volume not to be so sudden
Whenever you get multiple ads and set the volume to a certain volume (ie. lower it because sometimes its ear **** @Adobe) the next ad will play at the volume that the stream was at whenever the ads started rolling.
This is a HUGE problem. Ads blowing my ears out on my headset. And usually twitch is a passive channel to watch while your playing a game or something else so you have to stop that, switch to the Twitch channel, mess with the volume and then when the ads are gone, the person you tuned in to see is TOO QUIET. So it is in fact ruining two experiences.
This should be top priority for Twitch, its an ongoing issue and when one of those ads comes on and blows my eardrums out (because i use headset) I really get a bad feeling for the advertiser. and then its not just once, the same ad will keep coming on driving that sentiment over and over again. Not doing a good service for the advertiser, kind of anti-advertising.
Seems like Twitch doesn't care about this at all. very disappointing....
This is terrible that it's still on-going for 2 years. Only started using Twitch but I might have to switch back to YouTube.
Are the ads massively compressed like they used to do in the old days? You can't ever predict ads like you can with old school media. BAM ad. BLARING SOUNDS! DIVING FOR THE VOLUME CONTROL! WHICH IS QUICKER? physical or software controls. This is just cancer. I have neighbours who will aggressively threaten my life if i make too much noise, and frankly I shouldn't have to constantly wear headphones when you can just not be a completely evil peepo heads and just set guidelines for paid adverts. You set guidelines for just about everything else. No more screaming ads. It really is ridiculous. Advert audio guidlelines update please.
oh please every **** ad that plays on the twitch app when i'm watching a broadcast on my phone or tablet is so ******** loud i have to quickly lower the volume like 50%... which is why i can't play someone's stream while i sleep, your **** ads wake me up. I cant' watch streams if I'm in the bathroom for awhile (like when i cut my hair) cause the ads are so **** loud (and echoes in there) you can hear the ads from the OTHER SIDE OF THE HOUSE. It's why i leave my adblockers on for twitch when i'm watching from my pc. Looked on the net and I see why, most streamers keep THEIR volume a lot lower then "normal". After a decade or so you idiots still can't figure it out? LIMIT the max volume of ANY ad to like 50% of what it is now....
agree, the adverts are painful to the ear, suddenly and with no warning. this is a health hazzard
3-5 second ad warning notification before ad actually plays like the one youtube has so we can turn down our volume and not have our ears blasted to death.
Is twitch gonna fix this already or what? Seriously this is ridicolous so many people are counting and yet Twitch couldn't care less. Ignoring its users' feedback it's so unprofessional and really not worth of a platform like Twitch. I guess what brings them the money it's ads and that's their priority.
