  1. Raid & Host Viewer Opt Out Setting

    The new /raid feature is great for channel networking as hosting has always been, but both can be problematic for many viewers. It would be convenient for the User Settings page to be updated with a set of opt out settings for both raids and hosts. If a user opts out of raids, they will be considered to automatically click "Leave" at the end of any raid countdown timer. If they opt out of hosts, hosted channels will not load unless the viewer intentionally presses the "Play" button.

    Raids and Hosting present problems for:

    1) Temporarily AFK viewers during the…

  2. turn off raid options for viewers

    if a channel host raids another channel it will switch your url which will delete chat history as well some channels have "This room is in 10 minutes followers-only mode." so some raiders can't raid

    1 having the option of turning off raids for a certain channel your in so you don't get auto switched or turning it off completely for all raids because maybe you like switching to a different channel then join a raid.

  3. Opt out of automaticly viewing hosted streamers

    There are times when I don't want to load in to a new stream after the one I was watching is over.

    Some examples are when I am alt-tabbed and playing a game.

    For me personally, while playing a game I will always experience a spike in bandwidth usage while the new hosted stream loads in.
    Not all streams will use the same bitrate either, which is a concern, however I've not had issues with that problem so far.

    Another example is when I am away from the computer, viewing twitch as it were actual TV.

    Then inevitably having my…

  4. Create a way to co-stream with another user

    I think it would be a good addition to Twitch if a Streamer could have two or more streams running on a channel at once while they play with other Streamer(s)

  5. Fix the Hosting Feature, The Viewer Numbers in them are too Minimal.

    I noticed that when most big streamers host a channel, they get only like 20% of all the viewers in a host. For example, if someone with 200 viewers hosts another person, that same person will only get like about <50 extra viewers instead of <150. Not only me, but a lot of Twitch streamers and partners have been complaining about this issue. Before, host numbers used to give 90% or less viewers to streamers, but now its starting to get lower to 20%. If you could try to fix the hosting feature for all streamers, that would be very…

  6. Allow all games. Remove the prohibited games list.

    The Twitch community is composed of people from around the world, coming from unique political backgrounds and cultures.

    Prohibiting games enforces a specific view of the world to the Twitch community as to what is acceptable or not, censoring content with valuable gameplay and cultural content in the process.

    As of this writing, the list of prohibited games are either due to violence, sex, or any game with the "Adults Only (AO)" ESRB rating. While this could be argued to be a good thing for kids, Twitch has already a "Mature Content" flag in its channel settings for this specific…

  7. Preserve Pause & Volume/Mute Settings When Hosting

    If you have a stream paused or muted and a new channel is hosted, existing pause & mute settings are ignored after the host. If you leave a page up during the day or evening this can cause sound to suddenly start blasting from your speakers without warning. Please don't AutoPlay hosted channels if the open Twitch page has video paused, and please preserve mute settings.

    Better yet, add an option in our user settings to auto-pause/mute hosted channels so viewers can manually opt-in to watching a hosted channel.

  8. Split hosting into "Hosting" and "Sharing"

    With the implementation of auto-hosting a lot of streamers are getting spammed by "UserA is now hosting you for 0 viewers". One solution could be to have "Hosting" be when a streamer is actively chooses to host someone, bringing in actual view counts, "Sharing" would be the passive aspect done by the auto-host. Since generally it won't be adding any instant viewers it should be tracked differently. Separating the 2 could allow for different alert tracking and better metrics.

  9. Find out an easier way who I mod for

    I would like to see an easier way to see what channels where I am a moderator without checking all my following list and typing /mods to check.
