  1. Make VOD's great again

    VOD's need a drastic update! How do you expect that users upload videos if even the past broadcast function doesent work properly?

    A couple feature that we are in desperate need of:

    - General stability update
    - On the fly rewind
    - VOD search (Title) for viewers
    - VOD ratings systems (viewers can vote 1-5 stars)
    - Viewer VOD Ranking (depending on rating)
    - Skip muted parts (setting)
    - remove the commentary function
    - mobile download cache (look at VOD's offline)

      • Deleting clips won't delete the preview images on the server.

        Twitch is keeping all the clip preview images all in the server even though it has deleted by the user or the streamer. Please remove all the preview images that already has been deleted. It is all showing up in google and I have been sending this complaining for almost 3 month and haven't got any reply from the twitch.
        What is the reason to keep all the preview images that streamer deleted for purpose?

        • Ability to refresh the list of reccomended past broadcasts shown on the Home and "Following" pages.

          The "Videos recommended for you" and "Based on your viewing history" sections sometimes stop showing new recommendations and right now there's no way to refresh or dismiss them.

          As it is now, the recommendation algorithm seems to favor videos that don't necessarily match what you've actually been viewing recently. For example, instead of the broadcasts I'm in the middle of watching I see videos that have high view counts but are months old.
          ->It would be great to have a way to show a new list of videos or/and even a way to dismiss videos you're not interested in.

          • Ability to select certain videos or collections that can be accessed by subscribers

            Would be great if we could select either collections or individual videos that were subscriber only videos and default the rest to public view. Or have a way to schedule out when they go from private (subs only) to public. As of right now we do that between YouTube and Twitch, YouTube being the public channel and Twitch VOD's being the subs only viewing. Having Twitch be both would be more than nice.

            • Drastically Improve Processing Time & Interface on Videos after Upload

              I uploaded a 958.5mb, 3 hour & 3 minute .mp4 video of a Stream I did last night. The upload appeared to happen very quickly, but it has been stuck in Processing for hours and there is no way to determine how far it has even come.

              How long should I expect for this to take? Is there any way to see how much has been processed? It looks as if this has been a problem for a very long time and I would like to know if there is anything that can be done on my end to speed…

              • Video Processing Que Clear

                I have like 15 Videos stuck in the Processing Video Producer tab on my Twitch. Why isn't this Fixed yet Twitch? (At least let me delete these failed attempts or Invent a clear Que Button that just Force Quits all processes in the Que?) There is no 3 dots at the side that allows me to delete these eyesores. I tried uploading a .mov today. 4GB and 2 times it failed so now my Que is even larger. Stuck in infinite processing.

                I feel like this problem started when they changed the processing so that only affiliates could Publish a…

                • FLAC support

                  While I understand the initial limitation with bandwidth required AAC limited to 160kbps when Twitch first started out along with a lack of native support initially, I fail to see why FLAC audio streaming, as per what Tidal offer for their premium service, can't be offered as an option, particularly for the entertainment and arts streams where audio quality is more crucial than for gaming streams where visual quality takes precedence.

                  Computationally, particularly with multicore CPUs with hyperthreading, it should be relatively easy to enable encoding on the fly without a degradation in streaming quality and not impact much on…

                  • Fix the upload logo and banner error.

                    This error has been going on for years and Twitch hasn't bothered to fix it. everywhere i look to find a way to upload it without an error i get the same problem with different people. I know it goes as far back as 2016 cause thats the earliest I've found it on (/r/Twitch) Some have found solutions like going Incognito or deleting your history,cookies,caches,etc. I unfortunately have not found a solution and have even gone as far as emailing Twitch customer support with no reply. If anyone can help or fix the errors then please let me know. The…

                    • Upload is way too slow

                      I'm just uploading a single Video with just 1.9 GB. Upload is 5 times slower than to youtube. It's rediculous slow.

                      I have a stable 10 mBit-Upload connection. Twitch jumps between 2000 and 9000 and every 3-4 Minutes there is a buffer of 5 minutes, where simply nothing happens.

                      Fix it. It's really awkward that your upload is slower than on other third party sites like vid.me.

                            • Searching a video within a channel

                              For now, the video section of a channel only highlight the latest ones or show them all depending on some filters.

                              What about having a search engine? In my case, I'm syncing over 1700 videos from a Youtube channel et on the frontend or backend of the channel there's no way to search for a specific video to, for example, modify things, check stats, etc.

                              Thanks for your attention

                              • Uploads and Processing

                                Upload was slow; it needs a bit of work. The only thing I'm more confused about is why Processing (after the video is done uploading) is continuously looping. There seems to be no progress with my upload once it gets to this stage... I've tried Refreshing the page and it's still ongoing.

                                • Video Processing

                                  Would there be a way to optimize the upload of videos from your end? It seems like both the Upload and Processing times of the new service seems greatly reduced. Also, not having a loading bar for the processing to take place is slightly irritating as someone who wants to use this feature.

                                  • Sort Videos & Collections by Name, Game, or Oldest/Most Recent Upload Date

                                    Such a feature would make it easier for viewers to find what they are looking for content-wise, and for broadcasters if they need to find a pre-existing video or collection to edit or delete.

                                    • Higher max. bitrate for everyone including NON-Partners.

                                      To put it simple: I'd like to stream my 1080p60 gameplay in better quality.

                                      My guess is that everyone would like to do it.

                                      For example: YouTube Gaming's recommended bitrate ranges from 4,500 to 9,000 kbps for 1080p60. Here we can use up to 3,100 without having fear that the stream will stutter a lot for the viewers.

                                      Would be awesome if we could get it here as well. Along with Quality options.

                                      As a NON-partner.

                                      Give us a chance to grow our channels with quality from the beginning.

                                      • Error Uploading Video Bug

                                        I keep getting an error message that says "There was an error with your video. Cancel upload, or try uploading again". What is wrong here? I uploaded 6 videos just fine, and now I get this message every time I try to upload. It doesn't say what the problem is. You can see a screenshot here: http://imgur.com/qyH4CxD

                                        • bulk delete

                                          I wish there was a way to delete videos in bulk. For someone like myself who uploads a LOT of vids and not have to go through deleting one video at a time if that time comes.
